Scheduled for October 21-23, 2016, the Breitling Huntington Beach Air Show will bring together the Breitling Jets Team (the world’s largest civilian professional jet aerobatic team) and the US Air Force Thunderbirds Flight Show Team. The event will also complete the North American tour of the Breitling Jets. In two years, the Breitling Jets successfully performed more than 30 air shows in the United States and Canada.
‘Today, more than ever, Breitling is closer to the aviation industry. By following the repair of the legendary aircraft, Breitling operates multiple aerobatic teams, supports the international elite of pilot squadrons, and sponsors world-renowned aviation shows to continue the brand and aviation. Deep roots, ‘said Breitling America President Thierry Prissert.’ Breitling Huntington Beach Air Show is destined to be one of the best air shows in the United States, and we are very happy to share Breitling Aviation enthusiasm with the Southern California public in the future. ‘
‘Breitling and Huntington Beach Air Show share a passion for aviation, performance and precision, and we are glad to be the title sponsor of the event. The connection between Breitling and aviation is well-known and we are proud to cooperate with such a well-known brand. ‘Mike McCabe, director of the Breitling Huntington Beach Air Show.
In addition to sending jet teams to perform aerobatic demonstrations at the air show, Breitling will also serve as the official timekeeper for this top event. Breitling’s connection to aviation dates back to the early 1930s, when the brand created an Onboard chronograph for the cockpit of an aircraft. This professional instrument was favored by the armed forces of various countries, and the Royal Air Force used to equip it with propeller fighters during World War II. The strong connection continued. In 1952, Breitling launched the legendary Navitimer series watch, equipped with an original circular flight slider, capable of performing various calculations required for flight. Soon, AOPA, the world’s largest aircraft business owner and pilot association, chose it as the official watch. Navitimer is the oldest mechanical chronograph still in production today, and it can be regarded as a model for pilot watches.
In 1962, Scott Carpenter took the Aurora 7 spacecraft and wore a Breitling Navitimer watch into space, making this Navitimer the first watch to get rid of gravity. The Aerospace watch, introduced in 1985, is also popular with pilots. In 1995, Breitling released the innovative Emergency watch with a built-in miniature emergency distress signal transmitter. Recently, Breitling launched the world’s first dual-frequency positioning beacon Emergency watch. In 2015, Breitling ushered in the first Exospace B55 intelligent interactive chronograph watch, which is innovative, functional and high-performance.
In addition to the Breitling Jets and the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds Flight Show, the Breitling Huntington Beach Air Show will also attract outstanding performing individuals and teams from around the world, including two-time Red Bull Aerobatic Championship champion Kobe Chambers, Red Bull Air Force, Bill Stein and ZivkoEdge 540, the 1995 US National Super Flying Championship Michael Goulian, and the historic C-47 Dakota at the Lyon Aviation Museum. ?
