Swiss Air-Rescue Rega receives second Challenger 650 air ambulance

A Challenger 650 outfitted as an air ambulance, complete with intensive care units, has been delivered by Bombardier to Swiss Air-Rescue Rega. It is the second of three such aircraft ordered by Rega, which is replacing its Challenger 604 fleet.

“Over the years, Bombardier Challenger aircraft have proven their reliability and endurance, and helped Rega come to the aid of so many people. We are extremely proud to have our aircraft continue to play a part in life-saving work,” said David Coleal, president, Bombardier Business Aircraft.

“The Challenger 650 aircraft is an ideal air ambulance vehicle, robust and versatile with a smooth ride that is essential when delivering inflight medical care.”

Swiss Air-Rescue Rega, a non-profit foundation, carries out air-rescue operations in Switzerland with a fleet of 17 rescue helicopters. It also repatriates patients from abroad with three ambulance jets. Rega acquired its first Challenger in 1982 and has operated Challenger aircraft ever since.

Bombardier delivered the second Challenger 650 to Rega on July 25, 2018, in Peterborough, Canada. Rega’s first Challenger 650 was delivered on April 9, 2018. The third is scheduled for delivery later in 2018.

More than 1,000 specialized Bombardier aircraft are in service around the world. From its Learjet, Challenger and Global fleet of business aircraft to its Q400 multi-role aircraft, Bombardier offers multiple platforms for government missions – ranging from surveillance and reconnaissance to medical evacuations and VIP transport.
