FIRM ADDS PLANE TO FLEET
EASTON — AXIS GeoAviation LLC (AGA) has added a Vulcan Air P68C twinengine aircraft to the firm’s fleet.
The additional plane allows AGA to support future aerial surveying and mapping projects in the Southeast U.S., Caribbean and nationwide. AGA’s sister company, AXIS GeoSpatial LLC recently acquired Mapping Resource Group,Inc. of Florida with a significant customer base in the Southeast and the Mid-Atlantic regions of the U.S. and the Caribbean.
The Vulcan P68C provides the additional capacity to serve AXIS’ clients, as well as versatility in that it is fast enough for aerial imagery collection yet can be flown slower and at lower altitudes to capture higher density LiDAR data.
Additional aircraft in AGA’s fleet include a Cessna 206H and a Piper Navajo.
In addition to its growing fleet, AGA has expanded its capability to collect LiDAR data through the purchase of two RIEGL VQ 1560i dual-channel airborne mapping sensors. AGA invested in the additional LiDAR sensors to meet the increasing client demand for higher density datasets. As experts in Hi-Definition LiDAR acquisition, AGA offers survey data collection, processing and classification for design scale mapping of airports, college campuses, environmental remediation, highways, railroads, pipelines, corridors, and other design and maintenance projects. Currently, AXIS GeoAviation is the only company on the East Coast to own two RIEGL VQ 1560i sensors.
“We, at AXIS, see rapidly evolving technology trends that will transform the way in which civil engineers, architects, infrastructure managers, and GIS professionals plan and design solutions for tomorrow’s geospatial needs,” Justin Lahman, CEO of AXIS GeoAviation, said. “Our latest expansion and investments are based on our predictions of the innovations that will redefine the scope of work in tomorrow’s surveying, engineering and geospatial markets. Our positioning is founded on intelligent preparation for the future; using the past only to make smarter predictions.”
The new acquisitions bring the total assets owned by AGA to three fixed-wing manned aircraft, two Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS), one Vexcel UltraCam Eagle system, one
RIEGL LMS-Q1560 LiDAR sensor, and two RIEGL VQ 1560i LiDAR sensors. AGA currently employs four pilots and eight crew members operating out of its Easton and Ormond Beach, Fla., hangars. About AXIS GeoAviation
