If you need assistance obtaining flight clearances for your aircraft into Cambodia or for locating fuel, you can contact Robert Scott. Robert is a pilot, and former Alaskan State Trooper, who has many years experience in Southeast Asia and operating an airline in Cambodia. He will charge a reasonable fee for obtaining clearances and fuel. He would also be a good contact for information on flying operations in Cambodia. Mobile Phone: 855 12 862850. Email Robert.  
Ultralights in Cambodia are growing. David Cowled works for ADRA and has a motorized paraglider up in Siem Reap. He is currently trying to set up a flying club in the north. Phone: 012 726758. Email David. 
There are also a number of French ULM aviation enthusiasts in Phnom Penh who used to fly their ultralight from an island on the Mekong or Tonle Sap. We did not meet these individuals, but they are very keen aviators. You could try to find out more information about flying ultralights in Cambodia by emailing Steve Nyirady at The Riverhouse Restaurant in Phnom Penh.

Useful Information from CAMBODIA AIP

In the past, there have been several instances of small aircraft being charged US$500 - $1,000 for "royalty fees" upon landing in Cambodia. This charge is not in the AIP. It applies for AIRLINES ONLY. Not for small private and charter aircraft. Do not let them charge you this fee. The ground handling fee is sometimes not charged for small aircraft, but sometimes, they will insist on a "marshalling fee" of US$28. CAMS and CATS are now managing the big airports, and they are getting the system more organized. Here is a copy of some relevant pages from the AIP to assist with information on airport charges and crew visa procedures.
