It's strange I've never seen any mention of 429s on this forum.

I have never posted a pic of me with our 429 like this...haha...

Oh wait maybe I did.

I fly for Rocky Mountain Rotors in Montana. VIP on demand charter/135/cinematography/photo/tours. I am also their Chief Flight Instructor for the school side of the company. We also have a small utility side that is quickly expanding.

We also are a factory service center for Robinsons and a Customer service center for Bell covering the 429, 407, 206, and 505.

A days flying can be pretty fun around here. Never know what you might be doing, or with who!

Is that Mark Duffy's company, I heard he was involved in a lancair 4P crash. Is he ok?

Duffy runs Central Helicopters. Sorry to hear he was in a crash. I have not even met the crew there due to observation of conflict of interest between the two companies. Hope he is ok.

Duffy runs mostly KMAX helis and I think a 212?

Those lancair 4P's are constantly crashing. They're pretty cool tho!

https://en.wikipedia...Lancair_Propjet

They apparently have the worst accident rate among kit airplanes, I heard about 12% of all the lancair 4's have crashed!

He runs a KMAX, B214, astar and a 206. So you guys don't talk to the competition?  ;)
