    The H125 (previously named the AS350 B3e) outclasses all other single-engine helicopters for performance, versatility, safety, low maintenance, and low acquisition costs, while excelling in high & hot and extreme environments. #Repost @verticalmag Today we continue our series on Nepal with a spotlight on Simrik Air rescue specialist Chhiring Dhenduk Bhote. Bhote was born and raised in the shadow of Mount Makalu, the worlds fifth highest mountain. Like others at Simrik Air, he received training in long-line rescue techniques from Switzerlands Air Zermatt. Bhote has been at the end of the line for a number of notable rescues in the High Himalayas. In our next post, well share video from one of his missions on Ama Dablam.

    More photos on @verticalmag! #Repost @verticalmag Better known on the Internet as the Worlds Most Dangerous Airport, Tenzing-Hillary Airport in Lukla, Nepal, has a steeply sloping runway thats only 527 meters (1,729 feet) long so if you have a choice, its nice to arrive on an aircraft that doesnt need a runway! Lukla is prone to low clouds and bad weather that can shut down the airport for days, but when the weather is flyable, its a busy place. At an elevation of around 2,845 meters (9,335 feet), the Lukla airport would count as a high-altitude landing for most helicopter pilots. By Nepal standards, however, the elevation is moderate. There are no fuel facilities on site, so pilots coming from Kathmandu will often carry extra fuel and siphon it out to reduce weight before proceeding to higher elevations.

    More photos on @verticalmag #Repost @verticalmag This week were partnering with @airbus_helicopters to spotlight the helicopter industry in Nepal, which our special projects editor @elanhead visited earlier this month. Well be sharing photos and videos on Instagram all week, and posting behind-the-scenes stories at verticalmag.com/nepal (link in bio). Our journey starts at the helicopter ramp at Kathmandus Tribhuvan International Airport, which was buzzing nonstop in early October as trekkers vied for seats into Lukla, the jumping-off point for most Everest trekking and climbing. With the trek to Everest Base Camp reaching elevations of over 5,180 meters (17,000 feet), a certain number of those trekkers would also end up flying out on helicopters after succumbing to altitude sickness. Such rescues are a primary driver of Nepals civil helicopter industry, and one reason for the popularity of the Airbus AS350/H125 series, which performs exceptionally well at altitude and accounts for around 85 percent of the countrys light single-engine helicopter fleet. Not only are these aircraft the highest flying helicopters in the world, theyre also some of the hardest working, with many of them logging a thousand flight hours a year, most of those during the busy climbing and trekking seasons.
