The newly manufactured H125 (formerly known as AS350B3e) Helicopter for Air Dynasty fleet has departed this Morning from Airbus Facility, Singapore to join a new base at Kathmandu.
Officials from Air Dynasty notified Aviation Nepal that the aircraft had left from its Airbus Helicopter Southeast Asia, Singapore today 13th September and is expected to Land in September 16th in Nepal via transiting in Surat Thani of Thailand, Yangon in Myanmar, Chittagong and Dhaka in Bangladesh following Biratnagar in Eastern Nepal.
Captain Arun Malla and Captain Niranjan Kant Silwal will be commanding the ferry flight from Singapore outbound for Kathmandu along with the Chief Engineer Er. Santosh K.C who will be on the ferry flight. Air Dynasty has already accomplished its documentation process from Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal (CAAN) and has gained the registration ‘9N-AMI’ for its aircraft. The approximate cost for the aircraft is around Twenty-seven Lakh dollar Nepalese rupees (2.7 Million).
The chopper had also conducted its test flight in Singapore and is expected to commence its commercial flight operation soon. Recently, another private helicopter operator Altitude Air had also inducted the same European manufactured H125 helicopter in Nepalese aviation industry on early September this year. This approach is very efficient for the country like Nepal because most active Heli-companies are operating their flights with same series of helicopters.
