Royal Bhutan Helicopter Service Launched

The services of the Royal Bhutan Helicopter Services (RBHS) were launched by Prime Minister Tshering Tobgay at the Lungtenphu helipad in Thimphu, yesterday. Now people can take a helicopter tour of Bhutan at a very affordable price.

Helicopter tour in Bhutan was inaugurated to mark the 60th birth anniversary celebrations of His Majesty the Fourth Druk Gyalpo. The primary role of the helicopter is to aid the public during emergencies and also to reach that leisure traveler to have access to a birds-eye view of Bhutan.

For the Bhutanese public, The chairman of the helicopter board, Kinzang Wangdi, pointed out that the helicopter would respond to distress calls to airlift seriously or critically ill persons from very remote areas like, for instance, Lunana. “Where evacuation through horseback or even in a road condition, would mean a difference in the life and death of that person.” Responding during disasters, like fires, floods, and earthquakes, is another primary mandate. “All of us cringe at the memories of how we lost six young lives several years ago because we did not have the means to save them,” the chairman said, referring to the 2009 incident in which rescuers were not able to save six schoolboys trapped on a rock in the middle of a swollen Wangchhu.

Rescue attempts had dragged on for thirteen hours. “We also sadly remember how we lost one of our national heritages, the Wangduephodrang dzong, to the ravages of fire, as we looked on helplessly,” Kinzang Wangdi added. The dzong was razed by a fire in 2012.

“It is my honor to report here that the standard operating procedures to respond to medical evacuations and disaster calls have been drafted and approved by the board,” Kinzang Wangdi said.
