Luxury aviation décor brand Wood Feather, which makes the finest handcrafted airplane propellers has announced an exclusive global partnership with Paramount Pictures’ TOP GUN franchise to launch a Special Edition line of Top Gun propellers. These four exclusive designs are inspired by the movie’s characters and airplanes and sure to be a desirable must-have for fans across the world. Black White Orange, Paramount’s licensing arm, has curated the collaboration between the 2 companies.
These 4 exclusive designs, MAVERICK, WINGMAN, F/A-18 and P-51D as the name suggests are inspired by the movie’s characters and airplanes. From the exact colours, shades to the decals and the exquisite finishing, the detailing on these propellers captures the most iconic mnemonics from the movie.
Each of these pieces are handcrafted from solid Burma Teakwood and take several weeks to make. Therefore, the company will be producing limited stocks on order. These designs are priced between US$1095 to US$1195 and available for worldwide sale exclusively on their website.
Elated about this special association Akshay Sharma, Founder of Wood Feather said, “What we’re making is something that’s never been done before. An iconic film deserves iconic memorabilia and our Top Gun propellers are nothing short of it. We’ve captured the essence of the theme in each of the 4 iconic designs and being a die-hard Top Gun fan myself I can promise that this something every fan is going to want to own.”
Mark Kingston, Senior Vice President, International, Viacom CBS, said, “For Top Gun: Maverick, we were looking for a unique aviation memorabilia that will be appreciated worldwide, given the global appeal of the film. In Wood Feather we have found a unique creator of premium handcrafted propellers, which will find a place of pride in the homes and offices of the movie fans as well as aviation enthusiasts.”
Adds Mitali Desai, Co-Founder & COO at Black White Orange, Paramount’s licencing arm, which curated this partnership, “For an iconic film like Top Gun Maverick, it was imperative for us to find innovative categories and partners who would do justice to the brand. Wood Feather is a prime example of both. Their propellers are premium, fascinating and an asset that a Top Gun fan would love to take home! We can’t wait for aviation buffs to get their hands on one of these.”
Top Gun Maverick is slated for worldwide release in July 2021.
Wood Feather is a brand synonymous with aviation décor. Founded by Akshay Sharma in 2015, each of the brand’s pieces are carved from a solid log of vintage wood and are entirely handcrafted by artisans.
