August 18, 2018 01:10 AM

Generally speaking, we try to learn as many new things as possible on subjects/areas of our interest. But it becomes a bit challenging if it falls outside the realm of one’s studies or profession. It was easier getting fascinated by aviation, but it was difficult to get necessary information then.

Small bug, big lesson

July 7, 2018 04:12 AM

Long period of stagnation has harmed RA’s image significantly. Regaining it will be slow and painful but it needs to reclaim its turf

In bits and pieces

One positive aspect of agreement between CAAN and AAI is it allows low altitude flights between Tarai and cities in India.

Quiet moment at Bhattedanda

June 9, 2018 00:34 AM

Traditional method of replacing faulty parts does not work. Throwing off the old stuff is the solution.

Perennial disorder

May 26, 2018 00:15 AM

Situation in TIA is much worse. Domestic apron is managed by airlines themselves, like disorderly bus park.

Spheres for course correction

May 12, 2018 00:18 AM

With his Indian counterpart, Nepali PM should take up the issue of additional checks by Indian security officers at TIA. No such arrangement exists anywhere in the world.

It’s logistics, stupid

April 28, 2018 00:11 AM

Most likely Bhairahawa airport will be ready first, but we won’t be able to run it effectively unless Indian side grants us more entry and exit points.

Wild goose chase?

April 14, 2018 00:22 AM

It is beyond belief that a B777 flying to Beijing from Kuala Lumpur should go missing so close to landmass.

Off-the-cuff solution

It is captain’s responsibility to ensure that passengers are landed safely but ATC is also responsible.

The void in the middle

March 17, 2018 01:18 AM

B757 was popular because of the combination of brute takeoff power topped by versatility and economics of operation with sleek architecture.

Nepal saga of Bell-47

March 3, 2018 01:00 AM

Whoever flew Bell-47 to and from remote locations did so with nothing more than a basic compass and a map, without weather forecasts

A heartless body #989

NA management is like a body without heart that maintains a layback attitude, passengers be damned.

The flying salesman

His record will remain unbeaten as no one will possibly ever last that long in the job.

The Dubai debacle

New Chinese markets provide the strongest hope for the continuation of A380 program.

Ferry tales

November 18, 2017 00:45 AM

Ferry, in aviation parlance, is a task of delivering an aircraft to a designated location. A new aircraft on its first ferry might mostly carry spares/tools and a few personnel trained for its upkeep. On a day-to-day basis, such flights can be nothing more than “repositioning” of an aircraft due to schedule or maintenance related requirements.

What would happen in the unlikely event of Nepal Airlines acquiring Superjumbo in its next order?

With or without Nijgarh
