Bremont Watch Co. has entered a partnership with aerobatic airshow performer Michael Goulian.
Bremont Co-Founders Nick and Giles English have a passion for the sky that was passed down to them from their late father, Euan, an aeronautical engineer and display pilot. On the other side of the Atlantic, the same passion was being passed down to Michael from his father, according to company officials.
Michael’s father Myron began his aviation career by working at the local airport in Haverhill, Massachusetts, at only 13 years of age. Myron soloed on his 16th birthday and received his Private Pilot Certificate on his 17th birthday. In the 1950s, Myron earned his living by flying his Stearman Bi-Plane as a crop duster and aerobatic pilot in Massachusetts and New York, and then in 1964, Myron started a flying school with his wife, Rita. Located just outside Boston, the school grew from just a few planes into one of the largest flying companies in the Northeast United States.
With a passion for aerobatic flying and a responsibility to run the family business, Michael won the US National Advanced Championship in 1990 and then in 1995, he went on to win the Unlimited National Championship and competed on three US World Aerobatic Teams.
In 2006, Michael was invited to join the Red Bull Air Race World Championships. For five years, he competed globally in the World Championship Series, winning the Budapest race in 2009.
Michael flies 20 airsshows per year across North America. He is also one of only seven pilots to have been awarded all three of the air show industries most prestigious awards; the Art Scholl Memorial (2006), Showmanship Award, and the Bill Barber Award for Showmanship (2009), and the ICAS Sword of Excellence (2012).
“Bremont and Goulian Aerosports are harmonized in many ways, a joint passion for aviation, engineering, precision and brand values are to name just a few,” said Nick English. “Mike is such inspiration to so many pilots out there; he is the consummate professional in every respect so from our perspective the partnership is very relevant indeed. “
“When an aviation friend turned me on to the Bremont brand and the story of Nick and Giles English, I was so touched and inspired that I contacted them to see if there was any interest in working together,” Goulian said. “For me personally, and at Goulian Aerosports, we work in partnership only with companies we feel represent the passion we have towards our industry and Bremont certainly has that. What they have been able to achieve with their mechanical chronometers within aviation and military circles in the US over the past five years in particular is tremendous. Their drive for perfection combined with their love of things that fly make this a perfect match.”
