Grumman Albatross Access Hatch
Straight Flight designed this access hatch within the cargo hatch eliminating the need to ascend from the entry door on the outside of the aircraft. Coupled with a simple ladder, passengers can easily reach the top walkways of the amphibious aircraft for everything from sunbathing to fishing.
Cessna 177 Cardinal Camera Hole
Straight Flight designed this simple alteration allowing the customer to mount a digital 35MM camera for clear aerial photos.
Motorized Camera Deployment Cage
Coupled with the Straight Flight Camera Portal STC this custom lift mechanism allows the pilot to deploy the camera sensor in flight while operating the Cessna 206H Aircraft.
Cessna 208B Grand Caravan Camera Hole
Straight Flight has the ability to install third party owned STCs like this portal in the Caravan. Coupled with this approved STC we designed a custom power panel for the operator with all required FAA approval paperwork.
Cessna 208B Caravan TKS Tank Relocation
Newer Cessna 208B Caravan aircraft have the factory TKS anti-icing fluid tank located in the belly pod. To allow installation of camera portal STCs and permanent removal of the belly pod, Straight Flight designed and approved relocation of the entire TKS supply system.
Cessna 402C Camera Hole
Straight Flight has the ability to install third party owned STCs like this portal in the Cessna 402C. Coupled with this approved STC we designed a custom power box for the operator with all required FAA approval paperwork.
Cessna Citation Mustang 3rd Crew Member Seat
Straight Flight designed this STC for our customer – Cessna Aircraft. After completion of the STC project, ownership of the STC was transferred to Cessna. This alteration allows the Citation Mustang to be a “convertible” aircraft converting from mission mode to passenger mode in less than two hours.
Citation 560 Camera Plug Door
Straight Flight has the ability to install third party owned STCs like this plug door in the Cessna 560. This alteration allows opening the plug door in flight while unpressurized affording no distortion for the Japanese news crews.
BAE J31 Jetstream Mission Mods
Straight Flight designed these custom modifications allowing the customer to operate the J31 on missions searching for unexploded ordinance below an old aerial bombing range. This high power ground penetration radar system had the ability to map bomb shadows up to six feet below the surface.
