Just remembering this badass chopper pilot who pulled off this incredible rescue of an injured skier off Passy, France, back in 2019. The helicopter rescue team from the French mountain police (PGHM) were called to the scene evacuate a skier suffered a knee injury and couldn’t make it down the mountain. That rotor was damn close to the slope but the pilot was mad skilled and performed flawlessly. Bravo:
While desperate situations sometimes call for desperate measures, it seems like pilots for the Peloton de Gendarmerie de Haute Montagne actually practice this exact maneuver. Breathtaking display of control. These pilots are unbelievable.
French Mountain Police are built different. A Gendarmerie EC145 perfecting extraction techniques in the Alps.
