FLEET INFORMATION

We operate Dornier 228 aircraft in our fleet. The Dornier 228 (Do228) holds an exceptional reputation for reliability, versatility, economy and ruggedness. Its performance makes it ideal not only for carrying passengers, but also for cargo. Developed in the 1980's in Germany, it is a tough STOL aircraft used both for passenger service, cargo service and other multi-purpose jobs. New Aerodynamic profile and special wing shape in Dornier-228 ensures improvement of lift/ drag ratio compared to conventional wing design and has reduced induced drag, lower structural weight and high structural strength. These improvements results in excellent take off, climb, cruise and landing characteristics.

The aircraft is branded for its excellent reliability, versatility and ruggedness. With a carrying capacity of 18 passengers powered by two Honeywell turboprop engines TPE331-5-252D, it is the ideal aircraft for serving both the STOL and non-STOL airfields of mountainous Nepal.

The cabin is designed rectangular in order to provide additional space for head and shoulder which simply means more comfort during passenger travel.

Due to its versatility, today DO228 are operated in a wide variety of roles including Commuter, Air Taxi, Utility, Corporate, Aircrew Training, Maritime Surveillance, and Search & Rescue and for Observation & Communication duties.

The large cargo door (4'2"X4'5") with a long cabin makes it specious aircraft makes it an excellent aircraft for lifting cargo.
