In celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Young Eagles program, EAA staff and volunteers from across the country are working together to build an AirCam destined to offer the next generation of aviators their very own “AirCam smile.” See it on display in the Homebuilders Hangar at AirVenture Oshkosh later this month!

If you’ve ever watched an AirCam video, you’re familiar with a few of the amazing shots we ﬁlm from our wingtip and others forward from the nose. By popular request, we’ve completed a production run of parts for our wingtip camera boom mount, compatible with most DSLR cameras. Additionally, we’re working with our composites team to produce a lightweight and aﬀordable nose mount.
We’ve been ﬁlming in 4K for the past year, and recommend the Panasonic GH4 camera with a 7-14mm aspheric lens. We’re working with the newer Panasonic GH5, but as of this writing haven’t experienced the same crystal clear result.
We’ve completed production parts for a left side front pilot step, and and will be introducing an easy-access right step rail within the month. See the prototype at Oshkosh!
Our left side front pilot step is a mirror image of the standard right side pilot step included in the kit, and installs easily during construction of the fuselage. This option could come in handy for a ﬂoat-equipped AirCam when winds favor docking on the left.
The left side pilot step is now available for $260.
