STOL Operations in the Himalayas, Nepal, VIDEOS

We are working on a series of videos showing Twin Otter flying in Nepal in the mid eighties. I had the privilege to fly the UN Twin Otter on an ICAO mission. It was indeed «Stick and Rudder» flying involved which is the basics of Airmanship.
The first video is already launched on the front page as a teaser. It is showing the first Twin Otter Flights on Manang Airport at 11,000 feet ASL (Above Sea Level). We were heartily welcomed by the King of the Manang, who insisted that I should ride his horse, which I gladly accepted albeit I was a better pilot than a horseman, as the video shows.

      Thank you! It is a bit slow at this stage as we are working on the video which presents the core of Airmanship which is the craftmanship as expressed: «The Will and Skill». When the video are out, we have the right foundation.

    I’m also commenting to let you understand of the extraordinary encounter my cousin’s child undergone reading your blog. She came to understand several issues, including what it is like to possess an ideal helping nature to let other individuals completely learn specific hard to do topics. You actually surpassed her expected results. Thanks for displaying those important, healthy, explanatory as well as easy thoughts on that topic to Evelyn.

    I am not sure where you are getting your information, but great topic. I needs to spend some time learning much more or understanding more. Thanks for excellent info I was looking for this information for my mission.

  • A motivating discussion is worth comment. There’s no doubt that that you should publish more about this topic, it may not be a taboo matter but usually folks don’t speak about such topics. To the next! All the best!!|
