Visit to Rega

Guided tour
Date: Wednesday, April 26, 2023

Due to the great success last October and the long waitlist at the time, we are repeating the visit to the REGA base at the Aeroporto di Locarno.

Swiss Air-Rescue (German: Schweizerische Rettungsflugwacht, French: Garde aérienne suisse de sauvetage, Italian: Guardia aerea svizzera di soccorso, Rega) is a private, non-profit air rescue service that provides emergency medical assistance in Switzerland and Liechtenstein. Rega was founded on 27 April 1952 by Rudolf Bucher, who believed that the Swiss rescue service needed a specialized air branch. Rega mainly assists in mountain rescues, but also operates in other terrains, when necessary, especially in life-threatening emergencies. Rega also provides a repatriation and medical advice service for members who experience a medical emergency while abroad and local treatment is not available.

We will meet at the REGA Base at the airport of Locarno at 13.15


The guided Tour starts at 13.30 and lasts about 2 hours.

Maximum participants – 30 on a first come, first served basis.
