The aim of our website


What is the aim, what is the intention of our website?

 

We would like to inform you! We (the active pilots of the Squadron 17) would like to give military aircraft entousiast a chance, to learn more about our squadron, about swiss military aviation, about our profession - what it means to be a military pilot on the F/A-18 Hornet.

 

This website is kept up-to-date by the active pilots of the squadron 17. We spend our sparetime at home for publishing new articles. This consumes a lot of time. We do not have a fulltime webmaster who is responsible for our site. Once again - please appreciate if your question is not answered as quick as you expected it. Thanks!

 

Note:

This is the "inofficial homepage" of our squadron, therefore we will not answer to requests for airfield tours, pilot interviews or badge!


Visit the airbase payerne


Is it possible to visit the airbase payerne?

 

A visit at the airbase payerne is in generall not possible. But there is a specified area for visitors where you can spot all the aircrafts during takeoff and landing. This place is located near the control tower and is an ideal place to take pictures as well. There is also a small aviation museum which is worth to visit once you are at payerne.

 


Visit the Fightersquadron 17


Is it possible to visit the Fightersquadron 17?

 

Unfortunately this is not possible. We (the pilots) are heavily engaged in a) our flightservice and b) with many other tasks beyond flying the Hornet itself. But the even more important point is, that we do not have the competence to decide whether you can visit us or not.
