Video: searching a large area by helicopter

Searching a large area by helicopter

Rega flies around 30 avalanche missions every year. The faster a person buried under an avalanche is found, the greater their chances of survival. As a result, the Rega crews regularly practise carrying out helicopter searches over large areas.


Summer holiday missions: Rega flies 260 patients back to Switzerland

During the summer holidays, Rega repatriated a total of 260 patients from abroad back home to Switzerland. Of these, 190 persons were transported using Rega’s three ambulance jets. The vast majority of patients were flown back to Switzerland from Europe, mostly from Italy.


Annual Media Conference 2017: Rega uses lasers to detect obstacles

Rega is the first civil air-rescue organisation worldwide to use a laser-based obstacle warning system – ensuring even greater safety for its patients and crews. On the occasion of its Annual Media Conference, Rega also looks back over a busy year: more than 15,000 missions and an ever growing number of patrons show that Rega is both needed and valued.
