Iron Maiden’s Bruce Dickinson selling private jets at Harrods pop-up shop

The jets will be on sale until the end of August

Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson is selling private jets at famous London store Harrods.

Dickinson, a trained pilot, is the chairman of Aeris Aviation, who are running the pop-up venture on Brompton Road in Knightsbridge, west London.

As The Evening Standard reports, six-seater Eclipse 550 jets are on sale. Each costs around £2.2m. The jets will be on sale until the end of August.

“There are no other twin engine jets that can come close to the Eclipse in terms of cost and economy and, with a range in excess of 1000 nautical miles, it is ideal for Europe,” Dickinson says of the news.

“It is great to fly and I am excited by the future for this remarkable aircraft.”

A press statement adds: “The Eclipse Jet has the lowest acquisition cost of any jet on the market, allowing you to achieve jet speeds at the purchase price of a turboprop! Priced hundreds of thousands of dollars less than our closest jet competitor, the Eclipse Jet will show the world that you are being careful with your transportation budget.”

The company also claims that the jet “leaves a minimal carbon footprint” due to its low fuel usage, adding that it “gives back to the environment every time it flies”.

Iron Maiden will release new album ‘The Book Of Souls’ in September. Recording of the album was delayed after frontman Bruce Dickinson was diagnosed with cancer. Dickinson was recently given the all-clear after treatment.

Dickinson was diagnosed with a cancerous growth on the back of his tongue in February and underwent a seven-week course of radiotherapy and chemotherapy treatment.
