Flying in the Himalayas, with the terrain above me! That was a challenge I could not resist. I applied immediately for the job, got an interview and soon after acceptance. My employer Widerøe Airline, was positive and a leave without loss of seniority was accepted. My wife Wenche accepted also even if she was pregnant with our third child. A boy was born and away I went with Wenches blessings. Just 2 months later she and the 3 children was with me in a nice home in Katmandu. I was checked out on the STOL ports and ready to take over from my predecessor Captain Don Lelievre, a French Canadian.
