Colonel Madan "K. C." Khatri Chhetri of the Nepal Army recieved numerous awards and citations for a high altitude rescue off Mount Everest in an AS350 B2 during the disastrous 1996 climbing season. I'm not sure if it was an altitude record, but Colonel Madan K.C. certainly deserves honorable mention.
