    I am trying to find someone that has a Cessna 172, and a pilot that can fly it in Nepal that we could hire to do aerial mapping. Do you know if anyone?

    Good day,
    I will be revisiting Nepal next year. As a Bushpilot in Africa I am really interested to do some good flying while in Nepal. My preference would be to hire an aircraft to fly myself (and my family), but would also look at options of taking a local safety pilot along.
    Is there an organisation that could arrange something like this? Looking for a SEP like a C182 or C206 or similar.

    Very much looking forward to your reply…

    Kind regards,
    Markus

    Hello,

    I am from Nepal currently in Telecommunications Business at Myanmar.

    What about the direct flight KTM – YGN – KTM from Himalayan Airlines that was to be starting from December 2016 ? Would like to have some information regarding this.

    Expecting a reply regarding this.

    Thanks and Best Regards

    I can add some details to Anurup Pathak’s article on fatal fixed wing accidents in Nepal from 1955 to the present time;
    1 The date of the accident to VT-AZX is quoted elsewhere as 30 August 1955 not 3 March 1955

    5 The aircraft involved was Twin Otter registration 9N-RF9

    7 The aircraft involved was a Pilatus Porter operated by RNAC registered 9N-ABJ

    11 The aircraft involved was a Dornier D0228-101 registered 9N-ACL; it flew into the side of a mountain on approach to Bharatpur

    I can offer additional accidents:

    15 May 1956 DC-3 VT-DBA of Indian Airlines overran the runway at Kathmandu and ran down a bank; 14 on board were killed as well as a person on the ground.

    20 April 1958 DC-3 VT-CYN en route from Simra to Kathmandu stalled and crashed 25km from its destination killing 4 crew and 16 passengers

    13 September 1972 DC-3 9N-RF10 crashed whilst on a paratroop training flight at Panchkhal killing 31 on board; it was on a local flight from Kathmandu and was due to return there.

    31 March 1975 Pilatus Porter 9N-AAZ of RNAC caught fire and crashed in a field 4km NE of Kathmandu; 5 were killed

    30 December 1985 Skyvan RAN-23 crashed into a forest near Dhangadi killing 22 passengers and 3 crew

    10 July 1991 Twin Otter RAN-26 en route from Surkhet to Jumla crashed into a wooded hillside shortly after take off from Surkhet killing the three crew

    19 November 1998 Pilatus Porter 9N-ABK crashed into Mount Kongri reportedly killing one person.

    Most of this information is available on the website of the Aviation Safety Network.

    I am an aviation historian with a special interest in Nepal and am trying to record the life of every civil aircraft which has ever been registered in Nepal and would be pleased to hear from fellow enthusiasts and historians. M passions comes from visiting Nepal in 1969, flying from Delhi to Kathmandu in the RNAC Friendship 9N-AAR,

    Best regards to all
