Our final stop on Friday evening will be Summit Air Ambulance, at Gallatin Field in Belgrade, MT. Due to the vast distances and rugged terrain of our state, helicopters are vital in getting injured or ill patients to medical facilities as soon as possible. Here you’ll have a chance to meet the pilots and medics who man these aircraft, hear their stories, and barring an emergency call, have a chance to see the helicopters and equipment up close.
