"It's just a really cool experience to get it to interact with people and see their stories where they're from," said Hunter.

While flying me over Ennis and the mountains, Hunter says flying gives people a whole new perspective that many don't usually get.

 "They really like to get out and hike and you can spend a whole day hiking and you cover 10 to 15 miles,”said Hunter.“You can only see a corner and state, but when you get in the air and you climb 12,000 feet you can pretty much see the whole valley and just an hour or so."

Troy's says his favorite part about flying is the feeling he gets flying over the mountains.

"It’s just very peaceful and very calm,”said Hunter. “I just think it's one of the most picturesque places in Montana you got the beautiful mountains right here you have a lot of access to recreation fishing, hiking and hunting it's kind of the best of everything right here In Madison county."

"This airport is a big asset to the community, it is currently one of the fastest-growing airports in the state with about 30% growth in the last four years."
