The Mollis base dates back to 1974, when the helicopter firm, Heli-Linth, started to fly rescue missions on behalf of Rega using a Bell 206 Jet Ranger. Since 2010, Rega has been operating an AgustaWestland Da Vinci rescue helicopter at this base. Since 1 September 2019, an emergency ambulance has been stationed at Mollis base. This means that Rega's physician can also be called out if a rescue mission by helicopter is not possible, for example due to bad weather.
From Mollis, swift arrival at any location
From evacuations in high mountainous regions to assistance after road accidents, the crew from Rega’s Mollis base are called out on all kinds of missions. In winter, they mostly deal with winter sports accidents, although transfers from one hospital to another – so-called secondary missions – are also part of everyday life. The number of rescue missions fluctuates depending on the season and the weather. “Rega 12” flies approximately 700 missions per year.
