-- A purpose-built aircraft for wildlife and habitat studies and photography.
AirCam # 1 was built in 1993 for National Geographic wildlife studies and photography over the rain forest in Africa. About 150 have been built since. In 2001, Associated Scientists at Woods Hole began exploring the use of an AirCam for right whale studies off the coast of Florida. The quiet, twin-engine, slow-flight, and high-performance aircraft proved to be well suited for coastal surveys and photography, and in 2006, AirCam # N38PP was purchased for right whale and other studies. The plane is currently based in Florida.
