The visionary himself! A great privilege to have met in Fribourg, Switzerland, with the creator of the Vuichard Recovery technique applied in Vortex Ring State situations; and an icon in the helicopter flying world, Vuichard Claude. Amazing man with an amazing vision for helicopter safety globally. – Facebook, 21.02.2016
Werner Barkhuizen, Pilot
Dear Claude, since over 25 years, I working here as aviation engineer, program manager and pilot for procurement and certification officer at armasuisse, Swiss Defence Procurement Agency and have to do with designated and qualified experts in Aviation, test pilots, instructors, scientists all over the world, but I have never seen such a highly competent and highly experienced pilot and flight Instructor met like you!
With your knowledge gained, about your new Claude Vuichard Vortex-Recovery Method you set new safety standards in the World in emergency helicopter procedures. It shows your incredible skills and enormous flight technical knowledge and your incredible experience in helicopter flying’s (log over 16’000 flight hours). This new Vortex Recovery Method should find application worldwide, to reduce ubiquitous vortex accidents. I want to say, thank you to you, it is an great honor and I am very proud to working with you , thank you Claude and good Luck in the US! – Facebook, 29.02.2016
René Wittwer, Leader of Alouette Swiss Team

THL engaged Claude Vuichard and Leocopter training to run a Safety Seminar for approximately 60 participants, including 6 military pilots, in November 2018. In addition to the Full Day Safety Seminar a separate 5 hour aerology and performance module was held, along with flying for instructor pilots over a period of a week.

I can not speak highly enough of the value to our pilots that this program delivered. In addition to the human factors topics covered there was mountain specific training that included autorotations, slope landings, quickstops, and of course VRS. All of the techniques that Claude covered and demonstrated have helped improve our pilots skills that will enable them to avoid, or cope with emergencies in terrain and conditions they otherwise would not have been able to.

To quote another operator who attended the course “There is no doubt I am a safer pilot for attending the Vuciahrd Safety Seminar”
