The Smokejumper brand is a full-service concessionaire located inside the Helena Regional Airport with the mission of providing local, fresh, quality food and beverage to airport travelers and the Helena community. Our name pays homage to the Smokejumper history of Montana and the pacific northwest. 

Owned by the locally based Flying Ace, LLC a hospitality company in Helena, Montana with a vision of changing what regional airport food & beverage experience can be. 

A concept where customers are family, whether it’s your first visit or ninety-ninth, employees are valued over profit and food and beverage is locally based. The Smokejumper aims to change your perception of airport dining. Heck, we even had a private jet come back, just to see Josie again and try some more food.
