 Rega, the Swiss not-for-profit air rescue organization, last year for the first time surpassed 10,000 annual helicopter missions, at 10,425. This equates
to an average of 29 missions per day. The 4.8-percent increase was attributed to good weather, which favored outdoor leisure activities in Switzerland last year, according to Rega. The organization was funded by 2.14 million donors in 2008.
