“As a kid I dreamed of getting into motor racing but my mother didn’t want me to because she thought it was too dangerous!“

For the tenth year running Hamilton is joining leading French aerobatic pilot, Nicolas Ivanoff, in the cockpit – at least in a partnership sense. As official Hamilton ambassador, Nicolas Ivanoff is taking to the skies in a Hamilton-branded Extra 330LX. Hamilton and Nicolas Ivanoff share a deep-rooted passion for flying. With Hamilton as his official team sponsor, Nicolas Ivanoff is achieving excellent results as an official pilot of the Red Bull Air Race World Championship, and finished first in 2014 at his races in Dallas, Texas, USA, and Spielberg, Austria. A keen interest in motor racing and great instinct on the track help Ivanoff to be the one to keep an eye on at every race. He takes an artistic approach to flying, comparing it to “painting in the sky”. It goes without saying that his style of flying is a delight to watch.

 

Bringing Hamilton and Nicolas Ivanoff even closer together is a strong mutual commitment to reach the highest levels in skill, performance and thrill factor. Nicolas Ivanoff’s expertise can be found not only in the sky but also in the design and development of Hamilton timepieces, as he provides the brand with invaluable insights on integrating real, relevant aviation functionality into the Khaki Aviation collection.
