GRENCHEN, Switzerland, April 21, 2011 - Swiss luxury watch brand Breitling has launched an exciting global photo
competition on Facebook to win a Private Pilot's License (PPL). A
once-in-a-lifetime flight with the prestigious Breitling Jet Team is also on
offer as a prize for the runner-up.

Hollywood's top pilot John Travolta to name winner

A panel of aviation heroes, which include famed A-list pilot John
and Swiss aerial adventurer Yves "Jetman" Rossy, will judge the
final entries in the 'Spirit of Aviation' photo competition. An avid pilot
for decades, Travolta is qualified to fly several aircraft and has been an
ambassador for Breitling for many years.

As a company, Breitling lives and breathes aviation so the competition is
as exciting for those behind the concept as it is for those who can submit
their photos online via the dedicated Facebook application before the closing
date of 17th May 2011.

"It will be interesting to see how people interpret the 'Spirit of
Aviation' and we look forward to seeing some great pictures!" said a
Breitling representative. "It's a change from showing people our joy of
aviation through our sponsored teams and projects by directly involving the
public. It might give people a new career, hobby or interest."

The winner will be awarded training towards a PPL in their country. The
runner-up will be flown business class to Dijon in France to fly with the
legendary Breitling Jet Team.
