Breitling Jet Team
The Breitling Jet Team is the world’s largest civilian professional jet aerobatic team, equipped with seven Czech-made L-39C Albatros two-seater jet military trainers. The pilots of this unique aerobatic demonstration team are highly experienced flight experts, mostly from the French Air Force or the French Patrol (Patrouille de France Air Show).
Every year, the Breitling Jets performs about 50 flight shows in Europe, including air shows, Formula One Grand Prix, and sports events. Every appearance of the Breitling Jets brings a thrilling visual impact. The flight speed is as high as 750 kilometers per hour, but it can still pass through the air elegantly and freely; the flight distance is only 2.5 meters, and the ‘near-body’ formation is compact and accurate; the pilots synchronously flip the flight in the air, rotate cyclically, and challenge the gravity flight action, just like a careful The choreography of the ballet astounded the audience. Blending precision, speed, and courage, the Breitling Jet Team’s perfect ‘ballet in the air’ is as accurate as the Breitling precision timing instrument.
Breitling wholeheartedly supports ‘Flying Man’ Yves Rossy
Yves Rossy, the ‘flying man’ supported by Breitling, is the only brave man in the world to fly in the air with only his own jet wing. He is a former fighter pilot and is currently the captain of Swiss International Air Lines, and now he is known worldwide as a ‘flyman’. This extremely talented flying pioneer, relying solely on the flying wings equipped with four jet engines, soars into the sky like a bird. This unique skill is a heroic challenge to the limit of flying!
Because it relies on jet-powered flying wings to fly, the whole process is extraordinary and thrilling. Yves Rossi took a plane or helicopter to high altitude, flying wings on the back of the cabin, starting the flying wing engine at the aircraft pedal, and jumping from a height of about 2,000 meters. After adjusting the flight attitude to an altitude of about 1500 meters, he will increase the horsepower and fly at high speed by controlling the fuel control lever. During the flight of about 10 minutes, the flying wings are wings, the eyes are navigators, and the body is a joystick that controls the height and direction of the flight. After the fuel was exhausted, the ‘Flying Man’ opened the parachute and landed calmly in a predetermined position, completing a legendary flight that was shocking and precise.
Breitling Wingwalkers is another outstanding aerobatic flying team under Breitling. It is famous for its wonderful ‘Walk in the Clouds’. As the world’s only aerobatic formation formation team featuring professional aerial walks, the team has nearly 30 years of experience in aerial entertainment performances, combining unique flying techniques, high-altitude art performances and efficient teamwork in a unique way. Very ornamental.
The Breitling Skywalk flight team consists of four Boeing Stearman biplanes from the 1940s. The stylish orange paint is bright and beautiful, and it is formed by two or four aircraft during the performance. At the same time, there is a beauty at each station on the upper wing center, performing unique dance steps and acrobatics in the air, ‘walking in the clouds’ with the plane, elegant and precise. When the aircraft roared through the sky with 450 horsepower roaring, leaving beautiful white smoke trails, bringing both thrilling and gorgeous visual and audio enjoyment, the strong retro charm showed a strong appeal, as if it awakened the aviation industry Colorful golden age.
