“It hurts badly”

A Swiss was in the cockpit when McFit millionaire Rainer Schaller’s private jet crashed off Costa Rica. Now it’s clear: the pilot comes from Valais.


An experienced pilot from Valais sat in the cockpit of McFit founder Rainer Schaller’s private plane.

The shocking news arrived in Valais around 10 a.m. on Saturday. A phone call reported the plane crash by McFit founder Rainer Schaller (53) off Costa Rica. A Valais (66) sat in the cockpit. “It hurts brutally,” says the pilot’s son-in-law to “La Nouvelliste”.

“He was an excellent pilot, undoubtedly passionate and extra careful,” he adds. Pierre-Olivier Favre, a Valais pilot and close friend, remembers: “It was he who taught me to fly at the Sion Aero Club in the 1980s. Everywhere he went he made a good impression.”
