This week the general aviation world is front and centre for the Friday Night Flight. As we head to the stunning landscapes of Nepal, pilots gain an opportunity to fly to airports and areas they would little explore otherwise. With almost all the airports across the nation open to traffic, now is the time for you to see new sights and fly to new areas!
Many of these airports have only a handful of spawn points. However, the ramp area can accommodate more than a few aircraft, so we suggest flying into these airports if the ramp is full; there will still be space! Pleased be advised that Lukla will likely be busy, so aircraft may have to hold visually for extended periods before being allowed into the airspace.
There are a large number of stunning uncontrolled airports in the nation too, some perched right on the highest peaks in the area. This week we suggest you get out and explore these, with the focus being on the beauty of Nepal, not the controlled airports!
Kangchenjunga, the second highest peak in Nepal, was believed to be the highest until what date?
- Mid 1540s
- Mid 19th Century
- Late 20th Century
