Understanding Breitling’s roots in aviation involves jumping out of a plane – GQ India (registration)

The human body isn’t designed to fly – no wings, tail, webs or hollow bones. Sitting at the edge of a Pilatus PC-6 Porter plane with the bright lettering of Swiss watchmaking company Breitling visible on its side and the door open at 4,000m, I wonder whether that waiver-of-liability declaration I signed before we took off is a mere formality, or whether my family will soon…
