Natasha Shrestha and Aviaclub Nepal in conjunction with the Department of Civil Aviation of Nepal have made wonderful progress with General Aviation in Nepal. It is now possible for private aircraft to make cross-country flights in Nepal. Before, this was not possible, and no one had any explanation why. Aviaclub Nepal is based in Pokhara. A few years ago, Aviaclub Nepal organized a cross county on their two aircraft from Pokhara to Bharatpur and Migauli. Distance was more a 100 km. It was 1.30 min flight in one-way with two landing. They made break before return to Pokhara in Jungle resort and enjoy the elephant riding. It was fantastic, very interesting and they got very warm reception in every place. Now they have put the information with photo in their web side. Natasha has worked endlessly to allow Nepal to allow the foreign pilots to fly on territory of Nepal. After this event she discussed with civil aviation. They are fully supporting for organization a International Cross Country Safari on Ultralight. Now Aviaclub Nepal has made an itinerary for these flights.
