    Navajo Camera Port modification

    In March we started a unique project that will be very close to finished by the time you read this. We have been working on putting two great big holes in a perfectly good airplane! You have probably noticed that many mapping websites offer overhead imagery with their street maps. The fine detail at the highest zoom settings is most often captured with a camera mounted in an airplane such as the Piper Navajo in our hangar. The STC’d modification*—which we have installed several times in the past—puts two large holes about 20 inches in diameter in the belly of the Navajo. The aircraft can hold different types of cameras for various photo missions, while special removable floor panels allow it to carry passengers when not doing photo work.

    *The STC is owned by J.D. Hoogstra. Find out more at his website under "Additional Products"
