LOIL Zams Christophorus 5

Durchschnitt: 5 (1 Bewertung)

1.The Original

Christophorus 5 was placed in service in the winter of 1987 in western Tyrol for faster access to major ski areas. The then Christopher 1a-called emergency helicopter was stationed in a makeshift tent in Landeck  in the "Pontlatzkaserne".

After the first winter was clear that in Tyrol can not be dispensed with its own emergency helicopter and then the helicopter under the name Christopher 5 from 1988 - initially only in the winter months - fix stationed in Landeck.

To meet the needs of the summer tourism, Christophorus 5 was operational from 1991 during the summer months in Landeck. Finally, in 1.1.1993 the gaps in the spring and autumn are closed - since then Christophorus 5 is open all year stationed in Tyrol and has established itself as the base for maximum service frequency and with one of the widest application spectra.

1997 left the Christophorus 5 team their "emergency shelter" in the Pontlatzkaserne and moved into their newly built Heliport in Zams.
