Three new captains

Congratulations to Simon Billeter, Jürg Niemeyer and Raphael Jenni! The three experienced First Officers of the Swiss Air Force and Rega / Swiss Air-Rescue have successfully completed a three-day joint-leadership course with me. I wish you all the best, much success and satisfaction in your new, demanding role in the cockpit of the Bombardier Challenger!

In February the three experienced first officers from Swiss Air Force and Rega Swiss Air-Rescue Simon Billeter, Jürg Niemeyer und Raphael Jenni completed a three-day joint leadership course with me as aspiring captains on the Bombardier Challenger 650 / 604. The course covered important aspects of self-management, the tools and methods for handling extraordinary and crisis situations, and the managerial skills for leaders in high-risk environments. The three days made them fit to continue and complete the practical captain training on the aircraft with confidence. The online format of the course has been positively evaluated by the becoming captains. Thanks to Cptn Andy Siegenthaler for his moderative and content support. Thanks to the dedicated crew of participants. I wish you all the best as you move into this challenging and wonderful job!
