In order to conduct aerial survey missions across Canada, throughout North, Central and South America, and in the Caribbean, Airborne Sensing requires the cooperation of a highly specialized aircrew. The work can frequently involve long periods of waiting for the perfect conditions required for a project and then, once those conditions arise, executing the mission without any errors. In many cases, the crew need to conduct GPS ground surveys, maintain close co-ordination with Air Traffic Control (ATC), operate in extreme temperatures, and take on a variety of roles simultaneously. Increasingly, the work is also carried out in languages other than English.
The proud members of the Airborne Sensing aircrew are not only highly trained in their various specialties, but also are readily trainable in new tasks that require rapid adoption of new skills.
In addition to our in-house training programs, many members of our aircrew have undertaken additional training with our equipment and software providers, such as Vexcel, Track’Air and Applanix.
Our minimum standards for hiring pilots for our operations far exceed the industry standard; as a result, our pilots are capable of flying under demanding conditions with incredible levels of precision.
The aircrew is highly focused on getting time-sensitive work done with a high level of accuracy.
The ASC crew has worked in over a dozen countries, and lived in quite a number more. Our operations have taken our aircrew through Canada, The U.S., Mexico, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Jamaica, Belize, St. Kitts and Nevis, Guatemala, The Netherlands Antilles, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Puerto Rico, Bahamas, Jamaica, Turks and Caicos, Bermuda, Cayman Islands and the U.S. Virgin Islands
