Not many, as they do not use F/A-18 Super Hornets (Which the Swiss Airforce has exactly 0 pieces) nor does the Patrouille Suisse supersonic flights with its F-5 Tiger.

It appears that they do have at least two.

Re: Patrouille Suisse noise complaints

this post is about getting stung in the ear by a large scary insect does not matter if its a wasp or super hornet this is about the pain and about any complaints from citizens who I assume are not used to military exercises over their homes... in neutral peace loving switzerland. This is not even about sonic booms which do happen sometimes when fighter jets speed to identify an unresponsive aircraft, which is totally different from training at low altitude over cities...

however there are quite a few also some fly in for joint exercises from NATO. But this is switzerland and such information about what military exercises and what aircraft is not public...

What is an F-18S Some Chinese knockoff?

17 weeks are "a few"

Btw. Pussies. Still remember the days the Mirage IIIS did regular supersonic training flights.

Over? Also around and under.

Let us see. Switzerland has an Army? Check. And Airforce? Also Check. Do they need training? Check as well. Year round? Check that for sure.

that's funny but I remember it like it was just a couple of weeks ago because they flew right over me and I was shocked because you really could not hear it until it passed over you

Re: Patrouille Suisse noise complaints

stop trying to be a smart-ass like you're well-informed
trust me most things you have no idea that they happened because they are not released to the public in Switzerland
for example a couple of nights ago all night long a large number of surveillance aircraft flew from Emmen over Schafhausen and the border area to Konstanz ...

Or 2 days ago when zurich police surrounded 2 buildings at paradeplatz with machine guns. Then packacked up and left after 10 minutes. Nobody knows anything.

Sorry. Had lunch. Just finished typing this up:

Regarding the police. Glad you noticed it otherwise we would have been disappointed, all the effort for nothing. Will do soon more stuff to the like of yours. Friend of mine had this really cool idea, be prepared for the unexpected

Nothing special, except maybe for Zurich city.
Was almost normal (though annoying,admittedly) to me at times. Depends on the region you live in.

They didn't even give you the sonic bang? What's the big deal then?!

Re: Patrouille Suisse noise complaints

Actually they just passed over us about 15 minutes ago - couldn't hear myself think for a moment. No sonic bangs, they're not in a hurry

The Mirage! Right aSitUS, those are the ones I remember from my childhood.
I seem to remember more of such noise back then than nowadays. But that is probably imagination?

Re: Patrouille Suisse noise complaints

Necroing since I can't find the thread I was looking for. Will be flying around Payerne the next few weeks.

"The Patrouille Suisse will conduct training flights at the end of October/beginning of November over Payerne Air Base (VD). These training flights will enable the pilots to fly in a different environment from the one in Emmen (LU) to which they are accustomed.

Patrouille Suisse, the Swiss Air Force's demonstration formation, is currently undergoing its further training at Emmen Air Force Base in preparation for the air show season in 2021.

A number of training sessions are planned over the Payerne air base on 25, 3 and 5 November, the Swiss Army announced on Monday. She thanked the population for their understanding of the inconvenience caused by these engagements."
