Rega – Swiss Air-Rescue

Airbus Helicopters H145

The twin-engine H145 features cutting-edge avionics and navigation technology, is equipped with a four-axis autopilot, and can also perform satellite-based approach flights with extreme precision. The operational spectrum of the Rega lowland bases is very broad: it  ranges from road and leisure accidents to acute illnesses, right through to special intensive care transports between hospitals. The cabin of the H145, which has been constructed according to Rega’s specifications, offers a great amount of flexibility. It is predestined for special intensive care patient transports, such as with a heart-lung machine or a mobile incubator for premature babies.
