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.
- Obtain a letter of recommendation
- Submit your full application by the end of May of the year in question
- Recruitment interview
- 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.
