Claude Vuichard successfully completed the R66 type rating

Claude Vuichard, who served as an inspector for the Swiss Federal Office for Civil Aviation (FOCA) for 25 years, competed the R66 type rating with Valair. Claude, who also flew members of Swiss federal council for many years, is the inventor the famous Vuichard-Recovery-Technique to escape from the hazardous vortex ring state. We are very pleased that Claude will support Valair as flight instructor and mountain instructor.

We congratulate Claude to successfully passing the skill test.

On November 30th, pilots will have the opportunity to attend the Vuichard safety seminar on our heliport in Balzers to learn more about the above-mentioned techniques (seminar held in German).
