The Diamond special mission aircraft flagship DA62 MPP is currently touring the United States making waves in the airborne surveillance world. Together with Air Bear Tactical Aircraft, our DA62 MPP US distributor, and our partners Trakka Systems, Haivision, Vislink and CarteNav we have spent a busy summer and there is yet more to come. Read a story by Air Bear Tactical Aircraft.
It has been an exciting summer for Air Bear, especially for our two demonstration pilots, Air Bear’s Director of Law Enforcement Operations, John Nielsen and Air Bear’s Chief Multi-Engine Instructor, Rich Bookbinder.
Accepting the aircraft in late June at Diamond’s London Ontario facilities, Nielsen and Air Bear’s integration partner, Steve Pierce of Rapid Imaging Solutions conducted demonstrations for local law enforcement agencies as well as participated in an air-to-air photo shoot with Skies Magazine. Featured on the cover, Skies did a very nice job relating the capabilities of the MPP in their August/September issue.
With expert assistance from DAI’s London personnel, John and Steve quickly cleared Customs in Michigan and proceeded to conduct flight demonstrations to local and state agencies, aerial survey, pipeline & powerline operator’s, and fire mapping/suppression concerns across the northern tier of the United States.
