The status of paragliding fell under commercial aviation regulation as Civil Aviation asked for a permit to fly a paraglider, overmore, paragliding companies had to register under very heavy Aviation rules.
The general attitude in Nepal is to stop any new improvement and to create difficulties in order to charge . This sick corruption system makes it a challenge to open a paragliding compagny in Nepal as it has to obtain true AOC (Air Operation Certificate). Usualy AOC is for international commercial aviation under ICAO rule .
