Keeping the Forests Green
Many airlines and charter companies like to say they're doing their part for the environment, so what is Rocky Mountain Airways doing?
ONE ENGINE, HALF THE POLLUTION
The PC-12 is the most modern aircraft available for the Charter/Commuter market. Using a single Pratt & Whitney PT-6 Turbo Propeller engine means that we produce half the pollution created by similar aircraft in the class, most of which are Beechcraft King Airs.
KEROSENE IS KLEANER
Jet-A is a far cleaner and cheaper fuel source in comparison to 100 Low Lead. It doesn't require the heavy refining of 100 Low Lead, and burns cleaner than 100 Low Lead.
5 Bladed propellers allow for a much quieter aircraft, creating less noise pollution in comparison to aircraft using 2 or even 4 bladed propellers.
