Alpha Zulu Magazine
The third issue of the popular magazine "Alpha Zulu" was published in April. The new issue offers an impressive look behind the scenes of the Valais-based helicopter company, which goes far beyond rescue operations in the mountains.
Helping people in need has been deeply embedded in Air Zermatt's DNA since its founding. The third issue of Alpha Zulu magazine shows what it means to be there for people in need at all times. Air Zermatt has made a huge leap forward in recent years: while in the mid-1980s it was called out on just under 600 rescue missions, in recent years it has been called out on more than 2,000 missions.
The current issue not only contains exciting stories and information about Air Zermatt's rescue operations; in addition to presenting the new mountain bag, it also explains the firefighting boiler and its function. In an interview with the young pilots, readers find out what the years of training are all about, and a visit to the ropemaking workshop takes a close look at how the transport equipment is made. The magazine also provides an exclusive insight into the workshop of Airbus Helicopters Marignane in France, where the new Ecureuil H125 (AS 350 B3e) is currently being assembled.
The mountain climber Cornelia Rebsamen from Central Switzerland fulfills a dream in 2016 and climbs the Dufourspitze with her husband in winter. On the descent, she fell into a crevasse. In the current issue, Cornelia tells how she experienced the rescue through Air Zermatt: “My life is no longer the same as it was before the fall,”.
Air Zermatt fan Wolfgang Endres recounts his experience of flying with the new flight simulator. The full motion flight simulator is not only used by Air Zermatt pilots to train their maneuvers, but is also available to other professionalpilots as well as persons like Wolfgang.More about the flight simulator
