Abstract: Let $ {\tilde S_{n,a}}$ be the variety of smooth, rational curves of degree $ n$ in $ {{\mathbf{P}}_3}$ whose normal bundle has a factor of degree $ 2n - 1 + a$ and a factor of degree $ 2n - 1 - a$. In this paper we prove that $ {\tilde S_{n,a}}$ is rational if $ n - a$ is even and $ a > 0$.
