The helicopter will head to its maiden flight to Dodra Kwar on 8th January, 2013. The 26-seater Chopper would be of great use to the Tribal people for bringing them to and fro from tribal areas, mainly Pangi in district Chamba, Lahaul and Spiti district and hard areas of Dodra Kwar in district Shimla besides Kinnaur which remain cut-off from rest of the world due to heavy snowfall.
The state government also uses the helicopter services for evacuation of stranded tourists, who get struck while venturing out in harsh weather condition.
Shri Bharat Khera, Secretary GAD, Shri J.C. Chauhan, Principal Private Secretary to the Chief Minister, Shri Dinesh Malhotra, Deputy Commissioner, Shimla and other officers of the State Government were present on the occasion.
