Rega – Swiss Air-Rescue

Aircraft mechanics at work

They keep the rescue helicopters and ambulance jets in the air: Rega's aircraft mechanics carry out maintenance and repair work and ensure that the fleet remains airworthy. We look over the shoulders of two mechanics as they go about their daily work – and find out what makes their job so special and why helicopters are not the same as jets.
