Aim of the organization Member registration

Our aim is to keep the two-seater Hunter HB-RVR (formerly J-4201) based in Sion (Valais) in good working order and able to fly.

 

To achieve this, for maintenance purposes we rely on a team of former Hunter mechanics from the Office fédéral des aérodromes militaries (Swiss federal office of military airbases). Our two pilots, Eric Hauert and Yves Rossy, are both captains of large cargo planes. Highly experienced, each has a total of more than 17000 hours of flying time with more than 1500 hours on military response planes (Vampire, Venom, Hunter, Mirage).

They share the passenger flights and the meeting demonstrations under the surveillance of the office fédéral de l'aviation civile (Swiss federal office of civil aviation).

HAWKER HUNTER MK58/68

 

The design of the Hawker Hunter jet fighter aircraft dates back to the end of the 1940s, immediately after World War II. It took its maiden flight on 20 July 1951 with series production being launched simultaneously; this demonstrates how confident the developer was in the ability of its new plane.

 

A total of 1927 Hunters were produced until 1972 in Great Britain and 445 under licence in the Benelux countries. The plane served 19 air forces throughout the world, including the Swiss military air force. Some countries kept it in service until the 1990s. In Switzerland it was used from 1958 to 1994.

 

The Amici device is a former MK68 two-seater of the Swiss army, designed for electronic warfare (interference), ground attack and various types of training. The side-by-side seating of the pilot and the passenger is highly valued.
