Aircraft

We operate exclusively with a fleet of Aero Commander 690s, the gold standard for aerial data collection. This aircraft provides exceptional stability and visibility, along with more than adequate speed, pressurization and maximum endurance for long- or short-range operations.

Specifications:

  • Typical Seating: 5 passengers, 2 pilots
  • Maximum Payload: 2,200 pounds
  • Maximum Range: 6.5 hours, 1,500 miles
  • Cruise Speed: 305 mph
  • Fully IFR Equipped, including dual WAAS Global Navigation Systems
  • Twin Turboprop

"...the Twin Commanders are...a "pilot's airplane," in the good sense of the term. Its control response is lively, yet the airplane is rock-stable and makes a wonderful instrument platform."
