The Scientific Aviation manned fleet consists of four Mooney aircraft, each with slightly different features. These aircraft are highly versatile, exhibit excellent flight capabilities in a large range of environments, have low operating costs compared to larger aircraft, and are fully FAA certified. All of our Mooney aircraft feature advanced avionics and navigational systems, and can be customized with a scientific payload specific to your mission requirements.
For lower altitude and near-field point source quantification, our quadcopter and hexacopter platforms are an ideal solution. Our drones are equipped with winds, temperature, relative humidity, and pressure measurements, and can be outfitted with a methane/ethane analyzer, whole air sampling canisters, or other instruments that fit within the payload weight limits. Our custom-built iPad app controls the drone flight path, with real-time data and camera views.
