Rega as a topic for your school work

Every year, Rega receives numerous requests for material for school essays, projects or presentations. As it is unfortunately not possible to respond to all enquiries in detail, we trust that the following information and tips will be of help to you.

1. Allow sufficient time

We recommend that you start your research as early as possible – at least three or four weeks in advance.

2. Research on Rega’s website

You will discover plenty of information on the Rega website, which is bound to answer many of your questions. Below you can also find information that we have complied on specific themes, which could be of particular interest to you.

3. Register for a guided tour

You also have the possibility of going on a guided tour of the Rega Centre or of one of our helicopter bases. This is a great opportunity to take some photos and perhaps also to ask the Rega staff one or two questions in person.
