NAC Set to Acquire Viking Series 400's

Nepal Airlines Corporation (NAC) is expected to go to their Board of Directors shortly for approval to purchase four Viking DHC-6-400's. NAC has operated the legacy Twin Otter since 1972, but had recently begun acquiring the Chinese manufactured Y-12E as a replacement. The introduction of the Y-12E has proved to be troublesome for a variety of reasons, including an inability to handle the runway grade at some locations.
