Thrilled to be included in the Los Angeles launch of this prestigious luxury magazine.
Here's a fresh VIDEO interview from the AOPA LIVE BROADCAST (directed at the Aviation industry) that discusses the SkyRanch and the "why" of customization. Eddie Sotto along with Jay Beever, Embraer's VP of Interior Design, describe the Lineage 1000e and the new Phenom 300e. The fun starts about 9m30s in, but the whole show is exciting if you enjoy aircraft.
Here are a few excerpts from the Luxe Et Al "Winners Issue," discussing why SkyRanch One received this most coveted "Best Private Jet Concept" award.
Many thanks once again to our gracious friends at Embraer Executive Aircraft for partnering with us on this design adventure. We couldn't have done it without you!
2017 has been the year for collaboration. Private Jet Services, Katy Glynn and Skytheater, and now another project, this one commissioned by innovation leader, Embraer Executive Aircraft. In 2013 Jay Beever, VP of interior design, struck by our notion of a "yacht that can fly" took it up the ladder in a day to win the management approval for us to bring it to the Lineage. From that moment on, Beever's encouragement, expert advice, and collaborative product vision has been at the heart of a great relationship that fueled our entries into some of the best and most widely published design this studio and Embraer have ever experienced. A great collaborative force. Skyacht One, Skyranch One, and now the Manhattan all are products of this relationship. All in the flagship Embraer Lineage. A worthy follow-up to winning the IYAA for SkyRanch together! Thanks to Jay, his team, and thanks to Embraer, now let's go build one!
SottoStudios/LA and PJS Private Jet Services partner to offer seamless solutions.
SEABROOK, NH, June 19, 2017 – Private Jet Services Group (PJS) and Sotto Studios, Inc. have announced the integration of their unique skills to offer tailor-made, jet aircraft that bring client’s ideas to life in a way that goes beyond renderings. Through PJS’ strategic aircraft acquisition methods and Edward Sotto’s award-winning experiential design, consumers are given a "blank canvas" where impossible is just a checkpoint. Sotto’s award winning, SkyRanch One, is just one example of what is possible through this collaboration, or any concept can be developed and tailored to you, whether it be brand identity or complete customization.
Why the collaboration makes sense.
"Excellence is made seamless at PJS. Our clients are rarely conscious of the many details in their journey. We feel that Sotto's cinematic and collaborative design approach with celebrity clients is a natural fit for our own client base. We are excited to offer the opportunity to those to want to articulate their personal brand into a corporate or private solution,”
“In judging the success of any design endeavor you are only as good as your operator or those executing your design. Great renderings require greater execution and operation for them exceed high client expectation. PJS as a relationship appeals to us in that we are working with a world class organization where failure is really not an option. Our design has to hold up long term, and those who are on the ground with it are the difference in our success in many cases. Congealing our 30 years of high end design work and PJS' deep operational experience presents exponential value to any client,”
