RALLY


Lee’s entrance into the business was perfect timing. In addition to bringing needed funds, Lee also brought his Bell 206, which was the type of aircraft that RMR needed, as it operates efficiently at higher altitudes. In the past, the power limits and limited payload of RMR’s R44 had been a barrier to new business and growth. The introduction of the Bell 206 fixed that; with its turbine engine and larger payload capacity, it would exponentially open up more opportunity for new work.


Once the B206 was put into service, it began to scratch the surface of the potential work available to RMR. It did not take long to realize that investing in more capable aircraft would mean more business, so in 2013, RMR added a Bell 407GX to its fleet.


Another fortunate hit came in the form of a local real estate development that RMR really had nothing to do with, but drummed up new business. Investment firms and developers showered hundreds of millions of dollars on beautiful high country land, creating the Yellowstone Club. The “YC” is a 15,200-acre private residential community where the likes of celebrities and execs from from Fortune 500 companies reside.


Naturally, when Daddy (or Momma) Warbucks’ Gulfstream jet touches down at the Bozeman airport, the last thing he or she wants to do is ride in a car for two hours up to a ritzy weekend residence. Solution? The Bell 429.


Another fortunate hit happened when a group purchased a B429 and leased it back to RMR, extending the company’s capability yet again. “The Bell 407GX is a reliable, powerful, fast helicopter, but many of the high-net-worth individuals we fly prefer to be transported through the mountains in a twin-engine helicopter, and the B429 is perfect for the job with its smoothness, power, and luxurious interior,” said Taylor.


Recently, RMR was looking to add another single-engine turbine rotorcraft to the fleet in order to supplement, and add new performance capabilities to its B206 in operation. Under consideration was the Robinson R66 and the new Bell 505 JetRanger X. When it came to decision time, Lee didn’t take long to favor the OEM he knows best. He said, “I’m a Bell guy. I’ve loved Bell helicopters ever since I first started flying the B206 in 1974. So we went with the 505.”
