208 Camera Install

JA has long owned the STC for camera hole installations on the Cessna 208. We are starting another install and from week to week, we will post the changes to the airframe as they happen. Check with us weekly as we watch this commuter 208 morph into a camera bird capable of aerial mapping, ISR, and a host of other missions.

 

Next to the airframe we have an easel with a plan overview of the project.
