Aerobatic displays have long been the pinnacle of precision and performance - Qualities locked in the heart of the Breitling brand.


The Breitling Jet Team was a professional civilian aerobatic display team that operates with jet aircraft. They are known for their precision flying and thrilling aerial displays at airshows and events around the world. The team was sponsored by Breitling, a Swiss watchmaker. The Breitling Jet Team typically would fly seven Czech Aero L-39 Albatros jets, which are light attack aircraft. The L-39 Albatros is a popular choice for jet aerobatic teams due to its agility and performance.

The Performance of the L-39 Albatros

  • Rate of climb: 21 m/s
  • Max. speed: 750 km/h at 5.000 m
  • Max. takeoff weight: 4.700 kg
  • Span: 9.46 m
  • Length: 12.13 m

Why Jets? Why Breitling?

Fast Jets such as the L-39, as well as the demands of formation flying, not the least, performance aerobatics, command a superior set of skills and disciplines to that of most any other endeavour. Not only in the physical and mental aspect of the display, but with the intricacies and perfection that is required of any aircraft, especially that of a fast jet. It seems fitting, that Breitling, as a purveyor of such requisites & aviation-inspired styling, would want to sponsor a jet team that shares these same values.

Where did the Breitling Jet Team Perform?

The team was baed in Dijon, France, and performed throughout Europe and indeed on occasion, in North America, the last of which occurred in October 2016

The team dazzled spectators at large events, special occasions and celebrations, Formula One Grand Prix Races, and other sporting events alike.

The Breitling Jet Team invited audiences worldwide to witness the magic of their precision flight – an experience that left an indelible mark on the hearts and minds of all who have had the privilege of witnessing their aerial artistry.
