Fixed-wing Aircraft Services

The bulk of RC&A's flight services are performed by fixed-wing aircraft. Each ship has been extensively modified to accept gyro-stabilized camera systems as well as other remote sensing instruments. RC&A operates 10 fixed-wing, twin engine aircraft (7 Piper Navajos and 3 Piper Aztecs).

All aircraft are equipped with Track'air flight management systems and will accept the latest dual frequency GPS or Glonass receivers.
