Lockwood Aircraft Corp. has gotten approval from the FAA to do training toward an MES rating and the checkride for that rating in our LODA-authorized AirCam.
We have an MEI instructor on staff for you to achieve this, the "rarest of ratings." We also have a DPE available for your checkride. All of this can be done in our Sebring area. This is open to anyone who has an unrestricted MEL rating. We also prefer that you already have a SES rating as well in order to finish in the normal 5 hour plus checkride time. This can normally be done spending less than $4,000.(plus applicable taxes)
With a gross weight of 1900 lbs., seating for three and two 115hp engines, the new Gen 3 AirCam is sure to impress! Below is an excerpt from the March 2019 press release introducing the new model:
AirCam News and Updates
New Gen-3 model airframes have the option of incorporating a third seat located behind the second seat and a 220-pound gross weight increase from the current 1,680-pound max gross weight to 1,900 pounds. “The new jump seat will be quickly removable to convert between cargo and and third passenger,” added Lockwood.
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!
