Our story

It all started with curiosity getting to understand regions of the world much better, be it out of private choice or business needs. All of the crew have been travelling extensively.

It takes the combination of character, passion and ability to form a strong team that has the ability to operate united even in the toughest situations and when everything seems to go wrong. 

Meet the guys who accepted this challenge.

Our planes

Plane I - our beloved “Töffli”

Our plane is the familiar Pilatus PC-12 NG with the registration HB-FVC, read as a Swiss registered (HB) followed by Swiss produced (F) aircraft.

This aircraft is powered by a Pratt & Whitney 6A-67P Turboprop and has the capacity for two pilots and 8 passengers. The max cruise speed is 280 ktas, max range 1‘560 nm and max operating altitude is 30‘000 ft.

The PC-12 is a single-engine turboprop-powered aircraft, designed for performing in multiple roles and to deliver equal performance and safety to twin-engine aircraft.

This airplane has exceptional versatility and is capable of operating within the most rugged environments, it is one of the few pressurized turbine-powered aircraft capable of operating from rough landing strips.

Guest travellers

((add new text here)) The best places to go are The Solomon Islands and Chuuk. However there is almost no island we will visit that won’t have any traces and “leftovers” to be seen. One practical fact WWII brought to the region is that virtually every island has an airstrip dating back to the war times, whether it was build by the Japanese or the Americans.

Since we all love food and wine, part of the trip and adventure is to dive into regional varieties, be spontaneous and be happy with what’s around. That means eating and drinking on all levels!
