The Pegasus jet, designed by Dr. Reza Mia, features prominently in a new Brad Pitt film, ‘The Lost City’, scheduled for release in late April. Paramount pictures chose the Pegasus Vertical Business Jet for the film that stars Sandra Bullock, Channing Tatum, Daniel Radcliffe, and Brad Pitt. It was imagined by Johannesburg-based aesthetic surgeon Dr. Reza, who worked with engineers to create the aircraft prototype. The model can fly and its starring role is likely to attract global attention to South Africa’s technological innovation capability. Dr. Reza funded the development of the aircraft entirely from his medical practice in Houghton.
