Nepalese operator Fishtail Air is taking delivery of an H125 helicopter. The shipment is due to arrive on 8th July 2016 at Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu, the capital city. While the helicopter was being quoted as new from the factory, it is now clear that is it new to the operator and it is actually a 2012 aircraft previously operated in Switzerland by Heli-Linth. Serial 7345 previously flew as HB-ZNB.
The operator has reported that the aircraft will be registered as 9N-AJQ. Fishtail currently operate two helicopters – one Bell 206 JetRanger and one Airbus AS350B2. We believe this new aircraft is the replacement for AS350B3e 9N-AJI which was damaged in an accident at Langtang on 17th March.
