BREITLING JET TEAM

THE LARGEST PROFESSIONAL CIVILIAN TEAM PERFORMING ON JETS

Precision. Speed. Audacity. Aerobatics is one of the world’s most demanding disciplines – and one of the most fascinating sights. A concentrated blend of technique, mastery and style.

In order to share its passion for aerobatics with a broad audience, Breitling has created the Breitling Jet Team, the world’s largest professional civilian flight team performing on jets.

With its fast and powerful aircraft piloted by flying aces, this unique aerobatics team illustrates the brand’s cherished values: performance, precision, aesthetic sophistication and innovation. Each appearance of the Breitling Jet Team is a breathtaking vision. A meticulously coordinated ballet in which planes sometimes fly within 3 meters of each other, at speeds of over 700 km/h! A rapid-fire succession of figures that are perfectly calculated, mastered, synchronized and fine-tuned down to the smallest details. Exactly like a Breitling chronometer movement. Welcome to a world where outstanding feats are the rule!

Planes

L-39 ALBATROS

The Breitling Jet Team is made up of seven L-39C Albatros aircraft, Czech-made twin-seater military training jets that can also be used for passenger flights. These magnificent planes represent an excellent compromise between performance, aesthetics, reliability and operating costs. They were widely used in all former Soviet bloc countries. The Breitling Jet Team planes were acquired in exceptional technical condition. To accentuate their powerful, taut and dynamic appearance, Breitling has equipped them with a black, anthracite gray and metal gray livery perfectly reflecting their spectacular feats – while also improving the visibility of the breathtaking feats they perform. A bold, high-impact design in which each pilot’s number appears in an extremely original way, tightly framed and cropped to follow the shape of the wings and ailerons. Another spectacular detail lies in the dark shade of their fuselage, which creates a vivid contrast with the metal gray of the underside of the wings and sometimes makes the jets look almost like missiles when viewed from the ground.
