FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Sebring, FLORIDA / March 28, 2019 — Lockwood Aircraft is pleased to announced several news items regarding its popular twin-engine AirCam in time for the Sun 'n Fun 2019 event in Lakeland, Florida.
SHOW LOCATION / PRESS CONFERENCE — “Our display space for AirCam is the same as in the past few years, MD 20B,” observed proprietor Phil Lockwood. “It is a prime corner spot in the main aircraft display area. This is the area where you will find most of the major airframe manufacturers like Piper, Pilatus, Diamond Aircraft and others.” Journalists are invited to hear details at a press conference at the company’s exhibit space (MD 20B) at 11 AM on Tuesday, April 2nd, 2019.
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.
