Donald Trump doesn't just have a private jet—he has a private air fleet.
Along with his giant Boeing 757, Trump also has an array of personal helicopters. He recently upgraded one of his personal choppers to a Sikorsky S-76, the manufacturer's top-of-the-line for private aviation. To make the interior Trump-worthy, he hired Eric Roth, the famed aircraft interior-designer based in New York's Long Island.
Roth took "Secret Lives of the Super Rich" inside the Trump chopper makeover—or we should say "gold-over." While Roth couldn't comment on the owner's identity, it was hard to keep a secret—the words "TRUMP" are emblazoned in red letters along the side of the Sikorsky.
Roth did Trump's plane in 2011. And when Trump bought the used Sikorsky, he called Roth to gut renovate the interior, which was old and outdated.
Pre-owned Sikorsky S-76's usually sell for $5 million to $7 million. To redo the interior, Trump probably spent at least another $750,000—though Roth won't say how much exactly.
"We gutted the whole helicopter and started fresh," Roth told "Secret Lives."
That meant out with the old and in with the gold.
The whole interior is outfitted with 24-karat gold-plated hardware—from the seatbelts to the handles. Trump also had his family crest painted on the side, in gold of course. And the shelves of the Trump chopper were stocked with water—Trump Ice spring water.
"If it's got the Trump name on it, it's got to be the best of the best," Roth said. "And this helicopter is worth of his name."
Watch "Secret Lives of the Super Rich" on Tuesday, March 24, at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
