Fleet of Eight Aircraft Ensures Reliable, On Time Acquisition

Midwest Aerial Photography owns a fleet of eight (8) 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 cases where the primary aircraft is grounded for maintenance.

Our fleet includes three 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 large format digital imaging projects with our Z/I Imaging DMC II cameras due to their faster speeds and heavier payload capacity.

Aircraft Ceiling Max. Speed Range
Piper Aztec 19,800 ft. 188 knots 758 nm
Cessna 206 16,700 ft. 154 knots 563 nm
AeroCommander 500s 19,400 ft. 215 knots 1,078 nm
Cessna 310R 19,750 ft. 207 knots 661 nm
