Flying with Captain Jürg Marti

This film is dedicated to Jürg, with whom I’ve enjoyed many great flights. Be it with the Beech 18, the DC-3 or with the Cessna Citation Jets.

In 2001 – during Swissair’s grounding – Jürg retired after 32 years of service as aircraft captain. Immediately thereafter he organized the operation of a corporate jet for Hugo Mathys. Later on he developed the project by building and leading a business aviation company. After his second retirement in 2009, he devoted himself to Hugos vintage aircraft as captain on the DC-3 and the Beech 18s as well as operations manager.

During his long career, Jürg clocked more than 15’000 flight hours by flying, amongst others, the following aircraft: Douglas DC-9; McDonnell Douglas MD-80; Douglas DC-10; Airbus A310, A319, A320, A321, A330; Cessna Citation CJ1, CJ1+, CJ3; Beechcraft King Air 90. While working for Swissair he held various management positions like fleet chief pilot on MD80, chief Instructor on Airbus A310 amongst others. Within the Classic Formation Jürg assisted Beni in flying the blue Beech 18.

Thanks Jürg for the safe flights and interesting conversations about aviation and business in the past 20 years. You are an amazing person to be around with!
