It JF Cockpit1all started with the dream of flying. Even as a child the current principal owner and president of the Lions Air Group AG was fascinated with flying. As a schoolboy he would cycle to Kloten, Zurich's airport, in order to watch the aircraft taking off and landing there. At 16, he began his training as a pilot and one year later he had obtained his license. Since then flying has been his life.

Jürg Fleischmann founded Lions Air, his first company, almost 30 years ago. The Lions Air Group AG of today grew out of this over the years. The company was founded in late 2008 by the merger of various companies, some of which had existed for over two decades. Under the Lions Air Group AG banner are Lions Air, AAA Alpine Air Ambulance, skyEmotions, a maintenance company as well as the restaurant Cockpit on the airport Birrfeld. The Group also holds a stake in the traffic information service viasuisse and the AP3 Luftrettung. Within the corporate structure, Lions Air operates the planes and the helicopters.
