Rocky Mountain Air Aircraft?

Sat Apr 21, 2001 11:16 am

Around 1978 I flew from Denver to Steamboat Springs on what I think was Rocky Mountain Airlines. The aircraft was a 25? passanger turboprop, unpresurized and I think fixed landing gear, that could land on the short runway at SBS (Hayden was not built yet). It was many years ago, What was the aircraft??

Hayden certainly was built (many years prior to 78) and was served by FL CVR580s.

You flew on a RMA DHC-6.

Yes that was it. It seemed alot larger back when I flew it. I guess Hayden did not have the runway back then it does now for the jet service.

Thanks

Rocky also flew the four engine Dash 7, which was a 50 pax airplane, I think. A lot different from what you describe. I haven't thought of RMA in a long time.

When did Rocky Mountain become Continenal Express, and whatever happened to them? Were they eventually bought by CO?
