One is tempted to Pat it on the Heli its red shiny belly

The body posture reveals a lot about the state of mind – of a helicopter. And the new helicopter of the heart leaves its rotor blades hanging. It is a Airbus H145, Nigel is brand new, insanely beautiful, insanely modern, polished, Power, crammed with technology, equipped with cameras, all in the service of air rescue. One is tempted to Pat it on the Heli its red shiny belly.

It's Friday morning and the H145 is in the middle of the big hall of the main train station. Which is why only he can be the rotor blades? As befits a hero of the skies, he would prefer to be outside in use, such as the last four weeks.

Important on the ground

Awesome had been this four weeks, says Adrian Ferrari. The base Manager and paramedic, it is apparently not only in the air. What he has a proxy for the Rega understood: That this Mission is in HB for the Image is just as important as every single one of the 12'573 helicopter operations in the past year. Show what you got, who you are, how you work. Many speak of "my Heli", recounts Ferrari. Each of the patrons can see themselves as part of the Rega. Identification and fascination with, the Rega works. In the air and on the ground.

up on the Saturday evening of the Heli in the HB of the Near admired. He is one of seven H145 Rega, which together form the Mediterranean fleet, stationed in dübendorf. In the medium fleet! This Name is an insult to the modern, dynamic flight, it is here. The Mediterranean fleet is so heavy-handed – even the small red fire extinguisher behind the pilot's seat is a dynamic designed! Or both of the cable cutter above and below the Cockpit Windows.

The most Elegant on the helicopter, says Adrian Ferrari, anyway, his behavior in the air.

a helicopter is kind of all good. This is probably the maximum weight reduction and the absolute functionality of the H145. The most Elegant on the helicopter, says Adrian Ferrari, anyway, his behavior in the air. If he floats, if he ends up there, where actually no place to Land.

But also attractive on the ground to swipe across the gleaming curves. To slide the fingers in and out of the few mm between the tail rotor and trim to feel the precision. If you were alone, would you resort to the tips of the rotor blades, professional look and the elasticity test.

Red and white barrier tapes to protect the Heli from too much love of his Fans.

You are not alone. In addition, white demarcation tape to protect red-the Heli from too much love of his Fans. The number are in Switzerland, Kingdom of: 3.5 million Patrons support the air rescue service. In HB the people stop, pull out their Smartphones, Selfie with, Pilot, Alex Itin.

If the new Heli is the super hero of the skies, then the Itin is his Sidekick. And, perhaps, also his biggest Fan. He praises the Cockpit admitted, with its three large screens, the modern graphics of the Display, the 4-axis autopilot, the regulates in addition to height and direction speed and performance for the pilot. The best of The twenty percent more power – "you can feel physically, and that's a good feeling." How good it feels, was Itin the past two day aware of: Because HB-ZQI was prepared for HB, had to Itin fly an old machine.


What does not mean twenty percent At full load in high summer, for example, if you transport a preemie in the incubator or a patient on the heart-lung machine, fly at the power limit float. Or: If one of the two 900-HP-fails engines, may keep the Pilot the Heli still for half a Minute in suspense. "More margin means more safety," summarizes Itin.

the Rega is not because, per se, a good flight noise?

Itin has fulfilled a childhood dream: Rega-Pilot. He is living his dream, for this you need to listen to him only. The fascination of flying was one thing, he says, the fascination for the helicopter the other. "Car, train, plane, ship," he says, "all of this momentum is forward, together." The Heli on the other hand, the moving in all the dimensions that could even be floating.

What is striking in the new helicopters, is the disguised rear rotor. Unusual. Much quieter he was, thus, declared Itin. Is that important? The Rega is not because, per se, a good flight noise? (
