Partnership with Eliticino-Tarmac in Gordola

We are strengthening our partnership with Eliticino-Tarmac for the flight school in Gordola with Alessandro Galli and Thomas Rossi, who have become part of our team of instructors since April 2021.

Type Rating Instructor Course (TRI) AW109

Among the objectives of the Swiss Helicopter flight school, one of the most important is to successfully train pilots to obtain a commercial license and then accompany them further on their training path. Switching from a single-engine to a twin-engine helicopter is an important stage, which requires several hours of flight, skill and experience.

Coronavirus – Information about our flight operations

We are very pleased that the restrictions in our flight operations, which mainly affected the training and passenger flights in the past few weeks, can be gradually eased as of May 11, 2020.

Via video conference to the helicopter controls

Extraordinary circumstances require extraordinary measures. This also applies to the flight instructors from Swiss Helicopter, who currently ensure that their flight students are looked after by video conference from home.

Coronavirus - Information about our flight operations

Based on the Federal Council regulation of March 16th 2020, Swiss Helicopter will no longer operate passenger flights, training flights, check flights and rental flights from all bases. Likewise, there are currently no theoretical courses in class lessons. However, distance learning is possible. These measures are expected to apply until Sunday, April 19th 2020.

Hangar capacity for helicopters in Gordola

Our operation base in Gordola has hangar capacity for A109/AW139/AW169 or Dauphin class helicopters. The location at the civil airport of Locarno, which also has customs service, in the vicinity of Lugano and Milan, is ideal for demanding customers who operate in central Europe and who desire an accurate and customized service. We have meeting and briefing rooms available, as well as offices, storage space and car parking.
