Above St Moritz With Swiss Helicopter

June 25, 2020 Headline News, Luxury Traveller Deluxe No Comments Email Email

As much for the adventurous skydiver enjoying Switzerland’s clean mountain air in a novel manner as for the heliskier intent on conquering Switzerland off piste, Swiss Helicopter is a useful transport tool offering privacy and simplicity as well as convenience and speed. In a country renowned for its excellent transport network across air, land, and water, Swiss Helicopter provides clients with quick and efficient transport from airport to resort or from resort to mountain summit in total privacy.

Busy executives with multiple meetings in different locations may enjoy the services of the Swiss Helicopter fleet, which includes the French-built Ecureuil AS 350 B3, an aircraft that holds the world record for helicopter altitude. Helicopters are often classed as an indulgent means of transport in the same league as private jets, yet just as private jets are, helicopters can be a busy traveller’s best friend for saving time and providing a private environment for travel―the latter point more important now than ever. For example, hours of travel on the ground can be saved by flying between the towns of St Moritz in eastern Switzerland and Gstaad in the western part of the country. If indulgence is part of the travel itinerary, why not fly from one glamorous resort to the other?

Most passengers on Swiss Helicopter flights are leisure travellers looking for an aerial thrill. With a maximum altitude of 7000 metres, the Ecureuil is an ideal choice for sightseeing above the snowcapped Alpine peaks and glaciers that make Swiss landscapes so beautiful and so starkly different from Australian topography.  Amateur filmmakers, who follow the lead of professionals and hire Swiss Helicopter to provide views of Switzerland from above, go home with footage unlikely to be rivalled by friends’ holiday photos. Why settle for a snap on a mountain when you can have one above it? Even video footage falls short of living the excitement of flying in a nimble aircraft piloted by an expert flyer only too happy to hover over a particularly beautiful location or zoom through a scenic valley between mountain walls; you have to live the moment yourself.

Swiss Helicopter maintains several bases in small airports across Switzerland.  Engadin Airport, near glamorous St Moritz in the town of Samedan, is one of the company’s principal points of operation. The convenience of flying into Engadin Airport, just a few minutes by limousine to St Moritz and Pontresina, starts and ends a holiday in style with transfers from international flights landing at Zurich Airport bringing travellers to the Engadin region in less than an hour.  A comfortable lounge at Engadin Airport for Swiss Helicopter clients begins and ends their time in the beautiful Graubünden region in style.  The many sights to be seen from above St Moritz and the Graubünden can be found on the My Switzerland website.
