Rega receives medevac CL650 two of three
Rega deployed its first Challenger in 1982 and its relationship with Bombardier has gone from strength to strength since then. The CL650 has engines with increased thrust and a Vision flight deck.
Rega's first Challenger 650 aircraft was delivered in April of this year.

Swiss Air Rescue Rega has taken delivery of a Challenger 650 in ambulance configuration. The company will soon receive a third CL650, completing the replacement of its existing Challenger 604 fleet.

The non-profit foundation carries out air rescue operations in Switzerland using 17 H145 and A109 helicopters, and repatriates patients with three ambulance jets. It acquired its first Challenger aircraft in 1982 and has worked closely with Bombardier ever since. The GE CF34-3B engines of the CL650 have higher thrust than those of the CL604, enabling shorter takeoffs, while pilots will benefit from the OEM's Vision flight deck. The type is quieter than its predecessors and has a range of up to 4,000 nm.
