Breitling’ Flight Performance Team Will Come To China For The First Time

The two aerobatic flight performance teams under the world-renowned timing brand ‘Breitling’-the ‘Breitling’ jet aerobatic team and the ‘Breitling’ aerial walk aerobatic team will come to China for the first time to present a Chinese air show in China, Participated in the 9th China International Aerospace Expo held in Zhuhai, Guangdong in November 2012.

The Breitling Jet Team claims to be ‘THE LARGEST CIVILIAN AEROBATICS TEAM PERFORMING ON JETS’ (the world’s largest civilian jet performance team), and it is also the only civilian professional jet aerobatic flight in the world team. The flight team is equipped with seven Czech-made L-39C albatross two-seater jet military trainers. Another L-39C is used for aerial photography or transport of the ‘Breitling’ VIPs, and to replace other aircraft during technical maintenance operations. Occasionally, this ‘No. 8’ will also make a guest appearance and form a flight demonstration with 7 other L-39Cs.
The pilots of this unique aerobatic demonstration team are highly experienced professionals, most of whom are from the French Air Force or the French Patrol aerobatic demonstration team. The team also has its own technicians. Their meticulous maintenance work ensures the best condition and safety of the aircraft during the performance.
All performances have been carefully arranged. The duration of each performance is generally 25 minutes. The formations and movements of various formations are varied, sometimes scattered and sometimes crossed. Sometimes the distance between the formations is not more than 3 meters, or even closer, and it is close to 700 kilometers Flight speed per hour, the maximum acceleration can reach 8G. Every ‘ballet in the air’ performance can bring shocking visual enjoyment, showing courage, speed and precision.
Every year, the ‘Breitling’ jet aerobatic team conducts about 50 flight shows in Europe, including air shows, Formula One Grand Prix, and sports events.
The Breitling Wingwalkers Team is another outstanding flying team under the Breitling Wingwalkers Team. Both aircraft used in the show were Boeing Stearman biplanes from the 1940s. The aircraft has a length of 7.62 meters, a wingspan of 9.80 meters, a maximum speed of 345 kilometers per hour, a maximum altitude of 4,800 meters, a maximum range of 333 kilometers, and a Pratt & Whitney R950-14B engine.
The Breitling aerial aerobatic team combines two styles of aerobatic flight: one is where the planes are arranged in a neat queue for a flight show; the other is a special performance called ‘walk in the clouds’: two young ladies stand on the upper plane Wing center, dance and acrobatics are performed simultaneously while the aircraft is performing aerobatic aerobatics.

The Breitling Aerobatic Aerobatic Team hopes to commemorate the famous ‘Barnstormers Touring Air Show Team’ in this thrilling way. It was a performance team made up of pilots and stunt actors who performed around the world during the two world wars.
The blue sky, the orange biplane painting, the beauty standing on the wings, the milky smoke arcs and the 450 horsepower roar from the engine. The Breitling aerial aerobatic team brought thrilling and exciting to the audience at the scene. Full of beautiful visual and auditory enjoyment.

Since its birth in 1884, Breitling has been flying alongside the world aviation industry. The splendid moment of human conquest of the sky is always accompanied by ‘Breitling’. The love of flying is deeply rooted in the brand’s genes. ‘Breitling’ is also keen to share the ultimate fun of flying with people. Since 1999, ‘Breitling’ has invited VIPs from all over the world to gather in Buochs, Switzerland for 10 consecutive days of flying activities. This is the famous ‘Breitling Airshow’ flying carnival. VIPs can board the jet with the pilot to experience the excitement of aerobatics, which is undoubtedly a unique life experience.
