111th Aircraft

We have our own aircraft based at the South County Airport, making the 111th fast and responsive to the needs of our clients.

Our beautiful Cessna 177RG N34869, with its retractable gear and strutless wings, make it the perfect fixed wing platform for aerial photography. The 177 is equipped for both oblique (angled) photography and also vertical acquisition for mapping.

The family Cessna 182 N71298 once belonged to Julie’s mother, Jan Perch, the Flying Lady. You may remember her for The Flying Lady Restaurant!

R-44 helicopter The Belangers are fortunate to have full-time use of a friend’s R-44 helicopter. Seating for four and fast, the helicopter allows for very low altitude views. Most shoots with the helicopter are shot between 300-500 feet

What’s the difference between an airplane shoot and helicopter shoot?

FAA rules state that an airplane must fly at 1000 feet above the highest thing in the area. A helicopter is not restricted to any altitude, but can legally fly at any altitude as long as it is done at a safe manner. To view a comparison click here 111th Aerials: Airplane or Helicopter
