Calibration flight of Pokhara Regional International Airport is scheduled to be conducted within October.  The Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal (CAAN) Director Bikram Raj Gautam informed that the mechanical test flights of six more airports including Gautam Buddha International Airport and Tribhuvan International Airport have been completed and the flight to Pokhara will be completed by October.

CAAN has stated that the airport in Pokhara is in the final stage of construction. Aero Thai aircraft has returned after completing a mechanical test flight (calibration flight) at TIA. After completing the flight of Gautam Buddha, CAAN requested to immediately do calibration flight of additional airports and NEA had completed flights at six airports at the same time.

After the test flight was stopped due to the epidemic, the aircraft had completed calibration flights.

According to CAAN, the cost of bringing a plane to Nepal for calibration flight is three thousand five hundred dollars per hour, so it has saved 54 thousand dollars for 15 hours to come and go.

Calibration flights have to be done within a year only at airports that are equipped with navigation systems and fly using equipment.
