Flycom Technologies takes delivery of its second DA42 MPP GeoStar

Within only two years from accepting their first aerial survey aircraft, Flycom Technologies, based in Kranj, Slovenia, now welcomed their second DA42 MPP GeoStar.

Flycom is offering a wide range of airborne remote sensing services from typical wide-area mapping to very specific infrastructure corridor inspections. The recently added DA42 MPP GeoStar is configured to carry various Riegl LIDAR sensors as well as medium format camera payloads, all mounted in a dedicated nose pod using the German IGI Flight Management System. The aerial survey aircraft will allow for longer and faster missions with possible combinations of ortho, oblique and/or LiDAR data acquisitions in a typical two-man crew pilot-operator configuration using latest equipment.

Vid Jakopin, Head of Remote Sensing Flycom, says: “Bringing home another DA42 MPP was our solution to solving our customer’s growing demands for multisensory airborne data which is increasing and changing in terms of requirements at the same time. The aircraft will be immediately deployed for a nation-wide LiDAR survey in Croatia. With another MPP, we were also able to avoid adding complexity to already complex operations of airborne remote sensing and secure another reliable and cost-effective platform for our aerial works. We are looking forward to continuing our cooperation with the team at Diamond.”

“We are proud to deliver another special mission turnkey solution to a highly professional end-user. Flycom is one of the industry’s leading providers in the aerial survey market and their decision to buy a second DA42 MPP GeoStar proves our state-of-the-art concept,” says Mario Spiegel, Sales Manager Special Mission Aircraft Division Diamond Aircraft Austria. “The aircraft can be operated at a fraction of the costs of conventional aerial platforms and with efficient jet-fuel engines burning less and lead-free fuel Flycom can operate as green as currently possible.”
