Officially, the Meiringen Air Base was first operational on 1 December 1941. Its opening coincided with the year 1941 of the Second World War, a time when things looked pretty grim for Switzerland's further existence. Where do we stand today? What events have since characterised the development of this air base? One thing is sure, the differences between then and today are huge. Many things have proved their worth und have the same value today as in the past, but much has had to be adapted to the present time.
You can get to know and experience the Air Force at the military airbase in Meiringen. The Air Force presents itself with a fascinating film. Get up close and personal with an equipped F-5 fighter jet and an Alouette III helicopter. A look into an engine and a flight in the "simulator" make this afternoon an unforgettable experience.
