Rega – Swiss Air-Rescue, to home page

Pioneers, part 3 - Bucher and Bühler

Without them, Rega would not exist in the first place: Dr. Rudolf Bucher founded Swiss Air-Rescue in 1952, while Fritz Bühler was instrumental in developing the organisation during the 1960s and 1970s. But who were these men? The Rega pioneers knew these two charismatic characters personally and still remember them well.
