I use a variety of fixed-wing aircraft
for our photo flights. This includes primarily high-wing Aeronca, Cessna
150, 172 and 172XP aircraft. I also have access to a Cessna 172
equipped with a belly camera port which I use for vertical
photography. I am not dependent on one aircraft, one pilot or
even one airport. I maintain a network of aircraft and pilots based at
several airports in NE Ohio, which assures I will have access to the
appropriate aircraft when and where you need me.
In addition to my network
of aircraft and pilots, I have also established a good working
relationship with the staff at the Cleveland Approach Control
photo sites are located under airspace surrounding Cleveland Hopkins
International airport. Without prior communication and
coordination with the air traffic control staff, it would not be
possible to take photos in some of these areas.
