Video: Breitling Jet Team visits Cathay Pacific pilots and training centre

The Breitling Jet Team is the largest civilian aerobatic display team in Europe. The team which commenced sponsorship by the Swiss timepiece manufacturer in 2010, is based in Dijon, France, and flies the Czech made Aero L-39 Albatros, the most widely used jet trainer in the world.

As one of the pilots in the video says “Flying is an art” and all pilots past and present share the motivation and passion for soaring in the skies. These “soft” aspects of the profession of piloting touched an emotional chord, and I only wonder “what-if”? I had not listened to my father 32 years ago. In the video there are also subtle references to the Breitling watches, a long time favourites of pilots, and in the interests of full disclosure, I have been wearing a Breitling for over 15 years.

Do visit the web site of The Breitling Jet Team for more information on them.
