ROBINSON R22 BETA II

The two-seater helicopter is ideal for pilot training.

The Robinson R22 is the most widely used training helicopter in the world and is the entry point to a career as a pilot for countless student pilots worldwide.

Equipped with a low-mass rotor system and extremely direct controls without hydraulics, it requires a steady hand and is therefore an ideal trainer. Pilots with experience in this type usually find it easy to switch to larger helicopters. At Mountainflyers, the R22 is used for trial flights ("fly yourself") and for pilot training .

Typical area of use

  • Pilot training
  • Trial flights
  • Private flights

LEONARDO AW109SP GRANDNEW

Our twin-engine helicopter with VIP equipment - perfect for comfortable taxi flights.

The AW109SP GrandNew is a helicopter from the Italian manufacturer Leonardo (formerly Agusta Westland). The AW109 offers comfortable seating for four to six passengers and is equipped with two Pratt & Whitney engines. The company's twin-engine "flagship" is primarily used for taxi flights in the VIP sector.

The glass cockpit offers pilots an excellent view in combination with an ergonomic workplace. Digitalized avionics for one/two-pilot instrument flight operation and a 4-axis dual duplex digital autopilot, which is coupled with a flight director, guarantee maximum safety and a low workload for the pilot(s). Thanks to the state-of-the-art avionics on the one hand and the two turbines on the other, multi-engine training (ME) and training in instrument flight (IR) can be completed on the AW109.

Airbus H125

The "A-Star" is used for a variety of flights, making it one of the most important helicopters internationally.

The "A-Star" family was developed in the 1970s by the French manufacturer Aerospatiale (later Eurocopter, now Airbus Helicopters) and is still very popular today.

The six- to seven-seats helicopter with a Turbomeca turbine engine is the most widely used aircraft in the Swiss helicopter industry. Its range of applications covers almost all areas of helicopter flying. We use the H125  for passenger transportation as well as for sling load operations. If the intention is to be employed by a helicopter company, a rating on the Airbus H125 is essential.

Typical area of use

  • Ideally suited for all types of sightseeing flights
  • Aerial work, such as sling load operations and flights at high altitudes
  • Heliskiing and taxi flights
  • Pilot training

Bell 505 Jet-Ranger X

The Bell 505 Jet Ranger X is a five-seat, single-engine turbine helicopter, which was certified by Bell Helicopter 45 years after the legendary Bell 206 Jet Ranger as its successor.

With its flat floor and increased cabin volume, the Bell 505 is ideal for sightseeing flights, training and aerial work flights.

The latest helicopter from Bell is equipped with a "Turbomeca Arrius 2R" engine including a fully autonomous and fully automatic turbine control system (Full Authority Digital Engine Control, FADEC). In addition, the Garmin 1000 is a fully integrated glass cockpit of the latest generation. The spacious cabin and large windows guarantee excellent all-round visibility.

ROBINSON R44 Raven II

Thanks to its wide range of applications, this is one of the best-selling helicopters in the world.

Like the smaller R22, it is powered by a Lycoming piston engine and offers comfortable seating for four people, with each of the three passengers having a window seat. For flights with just a few passengers, such as wedding flights, it is the ideal solution at an unrivaled price. At Mountainflyers, the helicopter is mainly used for sightseeing flights of all kinds and for pilot training. For many new private pilots, it is the first "big" helicopter and allows them to carry passengers on charter flights and share the fascination of flying with friends and family.

Bell 407 GXi

The dynamic capabilities of the Bell 407GXi have earned it a reputation as a reliable and versatile helicopter.

The helicopter is particularly impressive due to its fast flight speed while remaining true to its smooth and stable flight characteristics.

The Bell 407 GXi has a total of 6 passenger seats and offers excellent all-round visibility. At Mountainflyers, the helicopter is used for sightseeing, taxi and sling load operation flights as well as for pilot training. The Bell 407 GXi has a fully autonomous digital turbine control system (FADEC), which reduces the pilot's workload and minimizes the risk of turbine damage.
Like its little sister, the Bell 505, the Bell 407 GXi is equipped with the latest Garmin 1000 avionics.

The Garmin 1000 combines navigation, engine parameters and radio communication on two large displays. This makes for a tidy cockpit and facilitates pilot's work load.

How does a helicopter actually work?

The helicopter is a complex aircraft. The lift force that allows the helicopter to rise into the air is generated by the horizontally rotating rotor blades, which are moved by an engine. The helicopter uses the rotor to generate lift that makes it fly upwards.
