Fleet of Seven Aircraft Ensures Reliable, On Time Acquisition

Midwest Aerial Photography owns a fleet of seven aircraft which gives us the capacity to fly several projects simultaneously or assign multiple aircraft to a single project. This fleet also gives us redundancy, enabling us to assign a back-up aircraft to a project in rare cases where the primary aircraft is grounded for maintenance. Because we take timely acquisition of your target area so seriously, Midwest Aerial has established an aircraft maintenance facility, Central Ohio Aircraft Repair (COAR), which always puts our airplanes at the head of the line for repairs.

Our fleet includes two single-engine Cessna 206s, two twin-engine Piper Aztecs, a twin-engine AeroCommander 500s, and two twin-engine Cessna 310Rs. We typically deploy the twins for digital imaging projects with our Z/I Imaging DMC II cameras due to their faster speeds and heavier payload capacity. Film photography projects are flown with either a twin or single-engine aircraft.
