Flewber repurposes Flynt's GIV for roadshows
The chopped up Gulfstream GIV, now Flewber-1, has been on a tour of the Hamptons to showcase the company's app. It's next stop is Art Basel Miami 2022.
Larry Flynt's former Gulfstream GIV has become Flewber-1.
Read this story in our January 2023 printed issue.

US technology company Flewber Global has purchased the 1989 Gulfstream GIV private jet formerly owned by the late Hustler magazine founder Larry Flynt.

Flewber founder, chairman and CEO Marc Sellouk says: β€œI was made aware that the jet's fuselage was being sold earlier this year. Now, three months later, the front 27 feet of Flynt's former corporate jet has now become Flewber-1.”

The jet has been repurposed to serve a new mission on the road, rather than in the skies. This mobile unit gives people the opportunity to step inside a piece of American history and learn how Flewber and its app are making flying private easier and more accessible than ever before.

Already a hit after multiple appearances across the Hamptons, New York Fashion Week and Manhattan, Flewber-1 is scheduled to bring its message to people more widely across the country.

Co-founder and president Jay Yu says: β€œTo make a splash and get the word out, our team at Flewber had to think outside of the box. So that is exactly what we did; visitors and the general public can scan the QR code on the side of Flewber-1 to get directly connected to our app.”

The aircraft will be at Miami for Art Basel 2022 in early December.
