“Krone” looks back – Help has been coming from the sky for 40 years!

In August 1983, Christophorus 2 took off for the first time from the launch pad at Krems Hospital. This anniversary has now been duly celebrated. The “Krone” discusses the past 40 years.

On August 24, 1983, a new era was ushered in in Lower Austria. The Christophorus 2 helicopter stationed at Krems Hospital began operations on this day. Shortly before that, the first ÖAMTC helicopter, the “Einser”, had taken off from Innsbruck. The late college professor Gerhard Flora is considered the father of civil air rescue. “Except Austria and Albania, all European countries already have an air rescue service,” said the Tyrolean in 1983, convincing the automobile club to set up an air rescue network in Austria.
