Video: searching a large area by helicopter

Rega news dated 30.10.2017

Searching a large area by helicopter

Rega flies around 30 avalanche missions every year. The faster a person buried under an avalanche is found, the greater their chances of survival. As a result, the Rega crews regularly practise carrying out helicopter searches over large areas.

A pilot and a paramedic from the Rega helicopter base in St. Gallen explain how they go about performing a search and what technical aids they use.

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