In addition to a review of the Rega year 2020, the new annual report informs about what Rega is doing to further advance the cause of air rescue in Switzerland.
Our patrons keep us in the air and enable us to help more than 11,000 people every year.
The Da Vinci helicopter at the mountain Rega bases has been performing invaluable services. In our video, base manager and Rega pilot Giorgio Faustinelli explains why this rescue helicopter is particularly well suited to mountainous regions, what the cable cutter is for, and why there are several antennae mounted on the tail boom.

The Operations Centre is located in the Rega Centre at Zurich Airport. Here emergency calls are received around the clock from within Switzerland and abroad, and more than 17,000 rescue missions are organised each year.
Raising the alarm correctly and observing a few basic principles help the Rega crews in their work and contribute to the rescue mission running smoothly and thus the patient receiving swift medical attention.
