Based out of Provo, Utah. Yes, a general charter/utility helicopter operator that had a variety of aircraft. The 214 was primarily used for logging......but the accident rate was "huge" within the company (especially logging).....not sure what year they closed their doors?

If I recall over the years RMH operated something like 13 214B's and had crashed 12 of them :o

I believe they only ever sold 1, the rest were destroyed.

I believe (from what I remember) your close.......when a company pays their flight crews by the "pound"....it is asking for trouble! :huh:

 

Between Bell Helicopter, the insurance underwriter, and the F.A.A......also many, many lawsuits, the company was doomed during that era (of poor judgement) !!!!

I found ten machines with the RM registration. Some crashed and some were sold, mainly to Korea. Since a couple of years I am looking for some pictures of the RM 214`s, but it seems to be impossible. Every help is very much appreciated...

RMH was at one point a huge company doing both utility and EMS. They built a lot of the power lines in the Rocky Mountains, setting the towers and pulling the wire. They also did work up in Alaska. They eventually got bought by Air Methods. Back in the day they operated all sorts of ships including Lamas, Alouettes, S-61's, 500's, etc.
