Rega – Swiss Air-Rescue, to home page

Rega pilots can also see in the dark

People in distress do not just require Rega's assistance during the daytime -- approximately one in five of its helicopter missions is performed after dark. As Rega pilots also fly according to Visual Flight Rules at night, they use night-vision goggles. These help them to navigate by intensifying the little light that is still available.

The Rega website is accessible in accordance with the AA+ criteria laid down by the Access for All foundation. Please note, however, that the videos produced by Rega are excluded from this certification as they do not contain subtitles.
