Air Zermatt team returns to Switzerland

Air Zermatt Pilots and Rescue technicians Captain Gerold Biner, Bruno Zelk and the rest of the team have left for Switzerland after a successful season full of rescue missions. They arrived in Nepal this season some time in April and were stationed at Lukla for Sling rescue operations along with a tough regimen of training for our crew and rescue technicians from Fishtail Air.

Captain Lothal Hasler (Air Zermatt) was flying the AS 350 B3 on a rescue mission at Mt. Kanchenjunga from 20300ft where an American climber was rescued. Kindly visit out blog for details: http://fishtailair.com/blog/2011/05/manaslu-descent-proves-fatal-for-an-expedition-team/

They played a major role in the Sling rescue of an expedition team from Mt. Manaslu. http://fishtailair.com/blog/2011/05/manaslu-descent-proves-fatal-for-an-expedition-team/

We thank you all for contributing to such a major cause in our Himalayan Kingdom. We look forward to working more with you next season in helping to take Alpine rescue one step further and learning more towards building a stronger team.
