More private pilots heading to Bozeman, Gallatin County, Montana


Bozeman has become an increasingly popular destination which is seen by the large number of tourists consistently flooding in.

“I've owned this place since 1979,” said Arlin Wass, owner of Arlin's Aircraft Service.

Arlin has been running Arlin's Aircraft Service for around 37 years and he is doing something right because over the years the Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport is not the only airport seeing an increase in passengers.

“It's a lot more traffic coming in over the last few years. We've had more jets, mainly I believe, because of Big Sky, Yellowstone Club, and all the tourists and everything else that's found Montana,” said Wass.  

Bozeman has seen an increase of around 70 private flights this past year.

“We have got more flights than any other town in the state of Montana. We are ahead of Billings at this time,” said Wass.

Arlin's is primarily a Cessna single engine authorized repair station. However, they work on jets of all sizes, including planes from the Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport.

“A lot of people come in because we've got enough parts on hand to turn a person and get them out of here in a hurry,” explained Wass.

Arlin says he hopes to continue in this new year by providing the same great customer service on the planes that he loves.

“Just keep the business we got right now. It's been busy and I believe it's going to be busier this coming year,” said Wass.

Arlin’s Aircraft Service is located next to the Bozeman Yellowstone International Airfield.
