Rocky Mountain Rotors (RMR), based at Gelatin Field in the Montana city of Bozeman, have recently added a Bell 429 to their fleet. This single pilot IFR aircraft is soon to be configured with an external hook, NVG (for night mountain navigating), FLIR (for SAR missions), external cargo (ski basket) and had already been fitted with a 360* searchlight. It is set up in a corporate interior configuration for executive touring and charter, but with the seats mounted on the rail system so RMR can quickly change it out to meet an alternate mission requirement, such as SAR missions or heli skiing.
RMR also flies a Robinson R22 Beta II and two Raven IIs. The smaller aircraft spends the majority of its time on initial rotorcraft training for the company’s flight school, and occasional valley photography flights. The larger pair are for instrument, external load and advanced mountain training. They are also used for tours, real-estate, film and movie, charter, photography, SAR, surveying, and aerial coyote hunting.
