survey aircraft
Aerodata Surveys owns a diverse range of dedicated twin engine survey aircraft to address all kinds of aerial survey missions.

The aircraft are all equipped with camera holes and special racks and facilities for auxiliary equipment and can be deployed with various sensors, optimally tuned to project characteristics, with ultra-precise navigation instruments, guaranteeing flight execution to the utmost accuracy.

Aerodata also has easy access to other types of aircraft and helicopters for special projects or for the purpose of adding extra capacity.
  • Fairchild Merlin IIIA

    Fairchild Merlin IIIA

    The Fairchild Merlin IIIA is a fast turboprop powered aircraft with brand new Garrett TPE331-10 engines (or "dash-10's" as most say). This fast-climbing pressurized large survey aircraft with dual camera hatches (allowing dual camera installation to obtain multiple sensor imagery simultaneously) has an operating speed of up to 300 kts (555 km/h), a service ceiling of up to 31.000 ft and an operational endurance of 7.5 hours

  • Rockwell 690A Turbo Commander

    Rockwell 690A Turbo Commander

    A Rockwell 690A Turbo Commander, a pressurized turboprop, is the latest addition to the fleet. It has been fitted with brand new Garrett TPE331-10 engines (or "dash-10's" as most say) for high speed and fast climbing and with "slipper tanks" for additional fuel and range. It has an operating speed of up to 300 kts (555 km/h), a service ceiling of up to 31.000 ft and an operational endurance of 6 hours.

  • Cessna 404 Titan

    Cessna 404 Titan

    The Cessna 404 Titan is an excellent survey aircraft with two camera hatches suitable for dual sensor operation and an endurance up to 10 hours. It has a service ceiling up to 26.000 feet and a cruise speed of 170 knots (315 km/h) and therefore an obvious aircraft for large and remote missions.

  • Cessna T310R

    Cessna T310R

    The Cessna 310 has an operating speed of 220 kts (400 km/h). It is normally deployed all over Europe. The aircraft has an operational endurance of up to 7 hours. Its versatility and power make it a great all-rounder.

  • Partenavia P68C-TC

    Partenavia P68C-TC

    The Italian Partenavia P68 is a very versatile aircraft especially know for its ability to fly at low speed of 70 to 160 kts (130 to 300 km/h). This low speed can be very useful when flying LiDAR at very high point densities or digital cameras at ultra high resolutions in the sub 5cm (2 inch) levels. It has a high-wing meaning good visibility and is a spacious aircraft, so enough handling and manoeuvring space for the crew operating the sensors inside. The Partenavia is a fast climber, easy to handle and can stay up in the air up to 8 hrs.

  • Cessna 340A

    Cessna 340A

    The Cessna 340 is a larger version of the Cessna 310, but pressurized and more spacious. The aircraft can fly up to 220 kts (400 km/h) and has an operational endurance of up to 8 hours.

  • Cessna 402B

    Cessna 402B

    The Cessna 402 is similar to the 340, but slightly larger and with higher payload. It has a service ceiling of 30.000 ft and a maximum speed of 200 kts (370 km/h). It has an operational endurance of up to 6 hours.

Fairchild Merlin IIIA

The Fairchild Merlin IIIA is a fast turboprop powered aircraft. This pressurized large survey aircraft with dual camera hatches (allowing dual camera installation to obtain multiple sensor imagery simultaneously) has an operating speed of up to 285 kts (530 km/h) and it has a service ceiling of up to 31.000 ft. The operational endurance is max 7.5 hours. The nature of this aircraft makes it especially well-suited for large and far-away projects (e.g. Africa and Middle-East).
