Three bladed rotor systems are better for stability, hover performance, and passenger comfort. It also has greater agility and can handle external cargo with ease. This is called a Fully Articulated rotor head. Anyone know what a two-bladed system is called? Let us know in the comments! ⬇⬇⬇

In Alberta, the Sasquatch is known to be a benevolent being with a tendency to successfully avoid contact with humans. Yet, every year a cascade of motorists, tourists, hikers and furry friends alike have come across 'something' that resembles the mysterious creature. We've finally ...managed to capture our own photo, after operating out here for over 20 years! #lucky

Anyone else have a Sasquatch experience, or anything similar out here in Alberta? Share your story with us in the comments! #bigfoot

***We will pick 3 of the best stories to give away free Rockies Heli t-shirts!*** We will DM the winners for shirt sizing.

We had a BLAST visiting with Marley and Mocha here at the heliport! Safe to say the boss was smitten 🐶

Puppies love helicopter rides, too! and we couldn't be happier to fly 'em. All furry friends are welcome, as long as they are secured and on a leash at all times for their safety. We even have stops available to add on any flight, should they enjoy a little exercise. We charge $3.00/lb, ...so bring them along on your next visit! 🐶🐱🐰🐧

Here is a photo of our visit to one of our favourite peaks, Mt. Hensley! Named after Patsy Cline (her maiden name was Hensley), this area avalanched on the far side of Landslide Lake over 1,000 years ago; making the trees here just as old! They look pretty good, in our opinion. We'll have to ...ask for their skincare regimen... 🗻

Ever wondered what the Helicopter equivalent to a snowshoe is? It's called a Bear Paw! Just like a snowshoe, it disperses the aircrafts' weight over a larger surface area, allowing the pilot to navigate a landing on soft or uneven terrain. Pretty cool, huh? We think so, too 🚁

...#helicopters #travelalberta #snowshoes

Even we never tire of these views. Come join us for a flight, and see for yourself! 🚁
