Duration: 20 min
This video was taken during a 20 minute sightseeing helicopter flight with an Airbus Eurocopter AS350B3e Ecureuil (code HP-ZPB, built 2011) with Air Zermatt from the Heliport in Zermatt.
Take off was August 22, 2017 at 4PM with spectacular weather conditions – almost no clouds and clear visibility.
Starting altitude: 1701m
Highest altitude (over Matterhorn): 4554m
Maximum speed: 306.4 km/h
Temperature in Zermatt at Heliport around 20° Celsius
Flight route: starting from Zermat Heliport northbound, then west over Hohlicht glacier, then south crossing Rothorn glacier,  flying southwest to Matterhorn, circle around one time,  then southeast over Furgg glacier to Gorner glacier over new Monte Rosa hut – to Unterrothorn station (short landing) and back to Heliport.
This video was taken with a GoPro Hero 5 Black in 2.7k 60fps mode. The audio has been left original to give you the actual flight feeling.
Before you post hate comments about the video quality, consider that the video has been taken by my 12 year old son to capture his experience of a lifetime – and not to deliver a professional documentary of the Matterhorn… 
It is also not shared to gain any profit or achieve clicks for advertising – but to share for those who might not have the opportunity – and to pay respect to the work of AirZermatt which is as a priority non touristic rescue and construction flights.
Thanks to the great team of pilots and the alpine rescue team in Zermatt for this amazing experience!  See https://www.air-zermatt.ch
