Timing and fast information are the vital factors when it comes to aid and rescue missions. Swiss Helicopter works in close cooperation with Rega (the Swiss air rescue service), the emergency and disaster-relief services in general and the Swiss Armed Forces. We are able to supply wide coverage in such situations, thanks to our network of bases throughout Switzerland.

Our many years of experience make us a competent partner, anywhere in Switzerland, for:

Rescue flights on behalf of Rega
Flights to carry rescue personnel and equipment, assistance for mountain farmers and emergency animal transport, etc.

Police and border-patrol flights
Helicopters supply a fast and comprehensive overview of any incident.
These include search and rescue flights, particularly over difficult and inaccessible terrain, and interventions on behalf of the border patrol, etc.

Cable-car evacuations
Passenger rescue, usually in cooperation with the SAC (Swiss Alpine Club) and Rega

Preventive avalanche blasting
Precise blasting on behalf of public authorities and ski rescue services, on traffic routes or in ski resorts

Securing of sloping terrain to prevent rock-falls and avalanches
Avalanche and landslide-prone slopes often need securing to protect road and rail traffic.
