Helicopter Services Company formed in Bhutan.
Permalink Closed


Bhutan government has recently formed its first ever helicopter services company in the country. The government has decided on acquiring two H130s,each chopper costing about US $ 3.6 million. The first chopper is expected to arrive in 3rd November this year. The second will arrive in June next year. The establishment of the company is in conjunction to commemoration of the 60th birth anniversary of the 4th king of Bhutan, Jigme Singye Wangchuck.  So, it's a golden opportunity for me to see if I can get employed there.

Hello everybody,sorry for the delay in uploading the images. Anyway,here are a few images of the helicopter after landing at the RBHSL (Royal Bhutan Helicopter Services Limited) helipad at Paro International Airport,Bhutan. Just today,the 31st of October,2015, it took off from the helipad for a 2 hour flight to qualify a validation test conducted by the Bhutan Civil Aviation Authority.

Still more to come!

 

Kindest regards

Tsheten in Bhutan

Hello everybody,here are a few pics from what had happened here in my place on the 17th of this month..by the way,Captain Dave Peel and myself were on a medical evacuation mission. Evacuated two sick people from one of the remotest area of Bhutan. Everybody,including the patients and ourselves, is happy!..

A few images are from the testing of Bambi Bucket.

 

kindest regards

put that bucket on a long line!

1. keeps you out of the dust and dirt.
2. keeps the bucket from hitting the tail. ( seen it before caved in tail skins and busted baggage doors)
3. keeps the folks and obstructions clear of machine no blowing trash and debris to mess with.
4. dipping easier you can also see what the bucket's doing no snags no drags.
5. you can land clear of bucket with out fear of landing on it.
6. more areas you can dip from , safer all around.
7. with the bucket below you have an easier time hitting hot spots and a better aim to boot.

Thank you very much for you helpful advice, hillberg..and yes,the pilot and the operations personnel are planning to get a longer line for the Bambi bucket..
Coming to your 5th point, you're absolutely right that with a longer line, we'll have no problem in landing..since our line is quite short, the pilot had to first let the bucket touch the ground a few feet off the landing zone and hover back to land..

Anyway,I'll hopefully post about other operations too in the future.

Kindest regards
