Two successful characters for a two-week demo tour in Nepal: the Leonardo AW119Kx helicopter and Simone Moro, the only alpinist in history to have reached four 8,000 meters peaks in winter. The goal of the demo tour is to demonstrate the operational capabilities of the AW119Kx at 24,000 feet, in order to carry out helicopter rescue missions at hitherto unimaginable altitudes.

The demo tour will consist in two parts: during the first week, to test some features of the AW119Kx, passenger transport missions will be simulated starting from Nepal's capital, Katmandu (4200ft), to several base camps in the surroundings, but at higher altitudes. During this phase, it will also be possible for some potential clients to participate in such missions and test the helicopter capability. The second week will be dedicated to high-altitude aerial work activities, including several tests for the transport of materials with the cargo hook.
