Bighorn Airways is an experienced operator when it comes to unique and difficult missions. We perform a variety of missions for our customers that require unique skills, equipment and personnel. From providing aircraft and flight crews in support of the Governments Smokejumper program to flying on the North Slope of Alaska, Bighorn Airways is uniquely skilled and experienced at performing special missions.
Our special mission aircraft include the versatile CASA and Dornier turboprop aircraft. These aircraft are unique and capable of performing many different missions. Both aircraft can be configured for passenger, cargo or a combination of both. Both aircraft are capable of Short Takeoff and Landing (STOL) operations out of short and/or unimproved airstrips. These aircraft have large cargo/ramp doors that allow for easy loading and unloading of cargo and supplies. These cargo/ramp doors are approved for opening in-flight which provides added mission capabilities such as aerial jump deployments and para-cargo drops.
Our flight crews and maintenance personnel have decades of experience operating in challenging environments. Our talented staff knows how to operate safely in difficult situations and still get the job done. To highlight the skills, capability and performance record of our staff, Bighorn Airways is one of the few FAR Part 135 Air Carriers that are approved by the Department of Defense CARB (Commercial Airlift Review Board).
Our special mission capabilities include fire fighting, remote and STOL operations, arctic operations and air ambulance. If you have an aviation mission that requires unique capabilities, contact us today.
