Aviator Professional 2014 Edition

It is not a coincidence that the brand Aviator was created in Russia, a country, which historically is renowned for its aviation feats and courageous pilots. The Brand’s mission is to build exceptional watches that not only serve exceptionally, those who conquer the skies, but all those who support them from the ground. Since the year 2000, Aviator has provided watches to people of the most extreme professions, such as military, rescuers and pilots, as well as to watch and aviation lovers, building its excellent reputation for more than a decade in Europe, America and Asia. Starting from 2006 Aviator has been the official timekeeper of the Russian aerobatic team “Swifts”, pilots of which fly the legendary MIG-29 fighters.

The Swifts is formerly a Soviet and now Russian aerobatic performance demonstrator team connected with the Russian Air Force. The Swifts aerobatic team has conducted more than 100 demonstration flights each year since 1991 – the date when it was officially established. Its pilots have visited in excess of 28 foreign states. In 1993 the Swifts aerobatic team took part in the LIMA ‘93 air show in Malaysia and was awarded the title of the World’s Best Aerobatic Team, while in 1997 Team Commander – Nikolay Dyatel won the first prize in solo flying at an international air show in Finland. There are only two aerobatic teams in the world flying real military aircrafts: Russian Swifts and American Blue Angels. The Swifts are honoured to fly renowned MIG-29 fighter.

The main advantage of Swifts over the other teams is that all the transformations happen in front of the audiences, forming an integral part of the programme. Since 2006 Aviator brand is official partner of Swifts aerobatic team. Aviator logos are on the cabins and tails of all team planes. The pilots coordinate their activities, using Aviator chronographs, which successfully satisfy the needs of the team members. Aviator watches have a proven track record of working under conditions of high speed, altitude and the forces of thrust.

Aviator is the official timekeeper of the “Swifts” pilots, for whom precision in timekeeping and flawless function is of vital importance. To meet their exacting standards, Aviator built special limited to 1000 pieces model – “Professional” that ultimately became as integral to the MiG 29 “Fulcrum” jets as their existing dashboard gauges.
