Earth Science Aircraft

AIRtec operates multiple aircraft and specialized instruments to support studies conducted by NASA, FEMA and the Earth science community, improving scientists’ understanding of our planet.

The company maintains a fleet of rapidly reconfigurable aircraft with wing hard points, fuselage belly ports and internal space for mission equipment that can be deployed quickly for Earth science missions. These aircraft are typically used to obtain high-resolution, detailed measurements of ground, water and ice phenomena. Our aircrew, avionics and auto-pilot systems are optimized to fly very detailed profiles to collect precise data.

Our aircraft can provide scientists with high-altitude and long-duration flights, and the ability to fly large payloads and multiple instruments simultaneously to nearly anywhere at any time.
