<<"Is this reasonable?">>
in my opinion, it is not reasonable.. I am experienced on those routes and in Zürich airport, and I would hesitate. If forced, I could do it, but would not have 2 hours up top, and I'd be biting my fingernails all the way.
And, if your flight is an intercontinental flight, you cannot make it with a 50 pre-rat Zürich airport. Maybe intra0-Europe is possible, but you certainly cannot plan evrything working smoothly when you depend on on timing that is so close to departure.
What if you have delay returning your car?
Just my opinions. If you can schedule Pilatus, it will be interesting and closer. If the weather is cloudy, don't go up .
If you are ready to get your rental car at 10, you will not leave the airport at 10. Perhaps 10 was after a cushion for getting the car? It takes time to do the paperwork and get the car. Your route will either take you through Zürich or on the A1...both are prone to delays. At least, by train wherever you go, you will not make a mistaken turn, get caught in a maze of one-way streets (Zürich) or run into traffic jams on the A1. At 10 AM the rush hour traffic jam into Zürich is reduced, but not eliminated. The ring-road route (via the A1) has had heavy construction every time i have been on it in the past 5 years. Who knows, maybe the got it all finished just in time for you.
