Training programme for up-and-coming helicopter pilots

Helicopter pilot

Rega does not provide basic training for helicopter pilots itself. However, it does support specially selected up-and-coming helicopter pilots through its own youth development programme. Candidates can only apply for selection if they are in possession of a letter of recommendation from a Swiss partner helicopter firm.

Selection procedure:

  1. Obtain a letter of recommendation
  2. Submit your full application by the end of July of the year in question 
  3. Recruitment interview
  4. Two-day assessment at an external organisation, which must be passed in order to be accepted on the programme

Another possibility of taking to the air as a trainee pilot is through Sphair.
