The new night vision goggles
One in four helicopter missions performed by Swiss Air-Rescue Rega take place at night. For over 30 years now, Rega crews have been using night vision goggles in order to bring medical assistance by air to people in distress also after darkness has fallen. This week, new night vision goggles specially adapted to Rega’s requirements were put into operation. Lukas Frick, helicopter pilot at Rega’s Zurich base, presents the new NVGs and takes you with him into the cockpit.
