Initiation of the Nepal Tourism year (NTY) – 2011 was organised like never before at Mt. Ama Dablam- base camp by the Nepal Tourism Board and Fishtail Air is proud to be a major part of the whole operation. Fishtail Air’s AS350 B3 (9N-AJI) commanded by Captain Ashish Sherchan flew Nepal’s Tourism ministery officials to Mt Ama Dablam Base Camp and the crew members of Nepal television, Terai television from Kathmandu to Lukla on the eve of 13-01-2011. On the early hours of 14-01-2011 the whole crew of 10 men were flown from Lukla to Mt Ama Dablam Base Camp whereby the inaugration took place by lighting a flame and cracking amazing fireworks. The sight of the fire and the fireworks at 14500ft was one to remember. Fishtail Air’s mean machine then overflew the summit of Mt. Ama Dablam at 20500 ft carrying two professional photographers (from Nepal television) to take the shot of fireworks being thrown in the air at camp 1 and camp. The flight was spectacular and breath taking as described by the passengers. There after the mission was complete and Captain Ashish flew the whole crew back to Lukla and some of them back to Kathmandu where more events for the initiation is taking place.
