‘Your Mission’ winner is announced!

Garmin’s aviation ambassadors have featured heavily throughout our 2011 advertising campaigns, each detailing their different reasons for flying and why they use Garmin avionics to complete their mission.

Over the summer of 2011 Garmin ran a competition to find the next face of our aviation advertising campaign. We asked pilots to apply and tell us why they love to fly and what inspires them. We had a fantastic response and whittled the applicants down to a short list.

Selecting the overall winner proved tougher than we initially thought as the short listed contestants each had a great story to tell but eventually we decided the worthy winner was Richard Tyler. We chose Richard as his passion for aviation was apparent throughout his application.


On Friday 20th January 2012 Richard received his photoshoot along with an Aera 795 portable GPS. Richard spent the day under the instruction of our photographer Rama Knight as he posed next to the Pioneer 300. It was a slightly chilly and gusty day in Somerset but Richard didn’t complain and was great to work with.


Keep your eyes peeled for Richards debut throughout the aviation press towards the Spring and we’d like to thank all those who took part in the competition.
