Since 2005, Breitling and John Travolta have been united by their passion for aviation.

Breitling is world-famous as the producer of most reliable and functional timekeepers for pilots, with the Navitimer and Chronomat models on the top of the list. The Breitling high-performance wrist instruments, characterized by utmost sturdiness and functionality, are created to reflect the requirements of the most demanding professionals. The Breitling watches accommodate chronometer-certified movements that passed the strictest tests of the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute.

The brand couldn't find a better ambassador for its timekeeping instruments for professionals than John Travolta. The talented actor is also an experienced pilot really passionate about aviation. When he was a boy, Travolta dreamed of becoming a pilot and, having turned 16, he started taking flight lessons and got his pilot’s license at the age of 19.

Today, John Travolta is an experienced pilot with over 5,000 flight hours, having received certifications for eight types of aircraft, with the Boeing 747- 400 Jumbo Jet on the list. Travolta has his own airliner to travel around the world. There is a private runway to welcome jumbo jets, a taxiway stretching to the house and a special terminal for the actor’s flying machines in his residence in Ocala, Florida.

John Travolta has chosen Breitling wristwatches to accompany him during flights. The celebrity was presented his first Breitling watch, the Emergency, by his wife, actress Kelly Preston. The famous actor, with his professionalism as a pilot and his impressive experience in the field, has starred in a number of Breitling’s advertising campaign, including this year’s ads.
