March 3, 2017-Kathmandu
Goma’s newly arrived two Let-410 aircraft will be tested for the flight safety standard inspection tomorrow.
The flight for the inspection of two aircraft will be operating from TIA at 12:30 pm and 12:40 pm respectively. Captain Ang Dorje Sherpa and Captain Rabindra Pokhrel along with the instructor pilots of the airlines will be leading CFA (Certificate of Airworthiness) test flight.
Engineers from CAAN’s Flight Safety Standard Inspection team will be inspecting the test flight of both Czech manufactured Let-410 aircraft.
“The aircraft during CAAN engineers in-flight safety standard check will have to meet the flight standard of aviation authority for being eligible for the certificate of airworthiness to operate the commercial flight” reported a source.
We were also informed that both the aircraft will go under 30-40 minutes of in-flight inspection for the performance and standard check.
During the flight safety standard inspection, the overall performance of the aircraft along with the payload capacity will be tested by the inspecting engineers from CAAN.
Goma Air has planned to commence the first commercial operation of both the newly arrived Let-410 aircraft by the start of coming week after being tested tomorrow.
Goma Air had landed two maintained Let-410 aircraft in TIA from Chita, Russia on 26 February.
