Looks like a great series, watched an episode the other evening. Air Zermatt have always been held in high regard. :D

WOW!
What a great series.
Positive feed back would be, well done to the whole crew at Air-Zermatt including Engineers, Paramedic's, Doctors, the COE, ladies in the response center and not to forget the pilots. What a great bunch of professionals.
The Crevasse would have to be the most intense part of the whole series.
Great viewing for us as pilots and also the general public to see what is involved in the day to day roles of helicopters mainly in a rescue environment. On top of that we have some kick bum rescue professionals here in Australia that also need to be recognized in such documentary's.. (Hint Hint)
I can only be hopeful that if my family, friends and myself are in a bad situation, we can be assisted with such bravery and expertise.

Negatives would be aimed at the producers and editing crew at Red Bull for allowing such dismal mistakes in such a great documentary.
It is so sad to see so much recycled footage and incorrect match up shots of machinery that was so competently different to the story line machine. Example: EC135 on the job then an AS350 interior and airborne/landing shots, B429 on the job then a shot of a AS350 in flight or landing.. No need to carry on any more. If you watch it and are educated on machinery types you will surely agree.

Either way, well done to all the team at Air Zermatt. **^**

Watching this stuff really keeps be motivated in getting through all my CPL exams. Excellent series but I agree with godfather, the mis-matching of footage between the different types of machines in their fleet was a little annoying.
