What’s your mission? Garmin® begins the search for the next face of their advertising campaign.

Garmin the global leader in satellite navigation announced today they are searching for one of their customers to feature in their next marketing campaign.

“Our customers are so passionate about aviation and Garmin so it felt right to offer them the chance to have their 15 minutes of fame and tell their storey” said Garmin’s EMEA Aviation manager Trevor Pegrum. “Whether our customers have recently obtained their PPL or have been flying for the past 40 years it’s interesting to know what motivates them to fly”

The advertising campaign will feature some of Garmin’s aviation ambassadors including fast jet Hawker Hunter pilot Jonathan Whaley, CEGA air ambulance pilot Mike Ramsden and the London to Cape town world record holder Steve Noujaim. “Our ambassadors all fly for different reasons but all trust Garmin to complete their individual missions and share a mutual love of aviation”, Trevor Pegrum went on to say.

European pilots have until 30th September 2011 to submit their entry at www.garmin.co.uk/yourmission. The lucky winner of the competition will be treated to a professional photoshoot with their plane and witness themselves in print and online advertising across Europe.
