Is there anything worth considering for this flight?
There is nothing worth considering for our Everest Mountain Flight. In fact, they are some of the most technically secure flight with the experience the pilots have of docked flying hours over this region. Plus these propelled fixed-winged planes are made for flying in such terrains and have the modern equipment to do so. You would rather fly this, than on any other flight with the chances of something going wrong greater there. Modern aviation has made the danger rate drop almost to the negative spectrum. Yes, these mountain flights get cancelled often, that is not because of technical but natural reason. The high Himalayan mountain act like a barrier not only on the ground movement of people but also to the weather caused due to the movement of moisture, making certain areas not suitable to fly over at times, which can be detrimental to equipment such as the plane and you. It can also spoil the pleasure of viewing most of what you took the Everest Mount Flight in the first place. So when taking this flight, if you happen to be a tourist have some days on hand for taking the flight on another day, when all seems right. As the saying goes, “What man proposes, God disposes?” So be prepared for eventualities as it does fall in the hand of man.
