Congratulations to Captain Tshering Sonam and Captain Kelzang Wangchuk who have officially become Bhutan’s first Line Captains certified to fly the ATR 42-600.

Both Captain Tshering Sonam and Captain Kelzang Wangchuk’s promotion from Senior First Officers to Line Captains was marked by a simple ceremony presided over by Hon’ble Yab Dhondup Gyaltshen (Chief Pilot), CEO, and other officials of Drukair.
