“It is with the utmost confidence and pride that we deliver a third Challenger 650 aircraft to our partners at Rega,” said David Coleal, President, Bombardier Business Aircraft. “Confidence because we know these aircraft have the reliability that is so important when lives are on the line, and pride to see the Challenger platform configured into the world’s most advanced air ambulance.”

The three Challenger 650 aircraft were specially outfitted with two state-of-the-art intensive care units, including two patient beds. The aircraft have a range of 4,000 nautical miles.

Swiss Air-Rescue Rega is a non-profit foundation and one of the world's pioneers in aeromedical evacuation. In addition to repatriating patients from abroad with three ambulance jets, Rega carries out air-rescue operations in Switzerland with a fleet of 17 helicopters.

Rega acquired its first Challenger aircraft from Bombardier in 1982 and has operated Challenger aircraft ever since.
