Good news. We have a access to a new Aspen based helicopter with
FAR Part 135 certification, locally owned by a family for personal use that
allows us to book flights when not shuttling their friends / family back and
forth from Aspen
to their ranch over the hill.
It is a Eurocopter 130B4, a helicopter designed specifically
for sightseeing, with oversized windows and increased viewing angles. The large
doors and a low-slung fuselage make for easy boarding, and the ride is
noticeably quieter than other similarly sized craft — both to those inside the
cabin and on the ground.
The craft holds six passengers comfortably — with two in the
front row with the pilot — plus plenty of space for baggage and the other items
like bicycles, and other elements of your Rocky Mountain lifestyle.
