KATHMANDU, March 13 : Nepal’s national Flag carrier Nepal Airlines Corporation- NAC is in the final phase to recruit about a dozen pilots to boost the flight operations.  Two months earlier NAC has called for applications for 20 pilots and now have selected 11 pilots for the final phase that will go medical test and then get the appointment.

The Airlines also has given those selected candidates a week time to get their medical test done. According to the vacancy, NAC required 7 captains and 13 chief co-pilots. But only one captain and 10 chief co-pilots had passed the examinations. The successful pilots will be assigned to fly 19-seater “DHC-6” Twin Otter, 17-seater “Y12-e” and 56 –seater “Modern Arc” MA60.

NAC currently has two Twin Otter, Y-12e and MA60 each but lack of pilots has obstructed the aircraft to conduct maximum flights. NAC currently has 27 pilots for domestic flight operation.
