Sita Air operates 4 Dornier Fairchild manufactured
DO 228-202/-202K/-212 twin engine Turbo prop aircraft
fitted with Garrett TPE331-10T/-5A Engine.
It is a 18 seater STOL ( Short Takeoff and Landing )
aircraft, with single window seating, capable of landing
in 35 of the 47 airfields of the country with the speed
of 200 Nautical Miles/Hour. Periodically, we carry out
scheduled inspection and other structural maintenance
as prescribed by the manufacturers. These aircraft except
one have higher power rated engine (flat-rated to 715
SHP) as compared to other Dornier flying in Nepal. These
aircraft are certified for both passenger and cargo
The -10T engine have a higher horse power with 900 SHP
flat rated to 715 SHP which is ideal for operation in
Hot and High places similar to the conditions in Nepal.
The engine is more reliable, has increased maintenance
intervals and has reduced hot section cost giving increased
Our aircraft is fitted with EGPWS (Enhance Ground Proximity
Warning System) which denotes proximately of the aircraft
with the terrain, GPS (Global Positioning System) giving
the position of the aircraft, ELT(Emergency Locater
Transmitter) to give the location of the aircraft by
satellite in case of any accident/incident, TCAS II
(Traffic Collision Avoidance System-II) to guide the
pilot from midair collision with other aircraft and
WEATHER RADAR which shows the enroute weather.
Operational safety and technical superiority are the
major reasons for the selection of the Dornier Aircraft
by Sita Air for STOL operation in Nepal.
