Civilian: Breitling Jet Team

The Breitling Jet Team is made up of seven L-39C Albatros aircraft, Czech-made twin-seater military training jets that can also be used for passenger flights.

The Breitling Jet Team is one of only a few professional civilian jet aerobatics teams in the world. Each time the Breitling Jet Team takes to the skies, it executes a flawlessly choreographed aerial ballet. Seven powerful L-39C Albatros military jets are flown at speeds of nearly 700 km/h within three meters of each other by pilots of matchless skill, most of them from the French Air Force or from the Patrouille de France.
