Classic Aero-TV: The Ever-Evolving AirCam - Raising the Bar Higher Than Ever

From 2019 (YouTube Version): New AirCam Option Allows For The Installation Of A Third Seat

The recently announced Aircam 'Gen-3' model airframe now has the option of incorporating a third seat located behind the second seat as well as a 220-pound gross weight increase from the current 1,680-pound max gross weight -- totaling up to 1,900 pounds. The new jump seat can be readily converted between cargo usage or the carrying of a third passenger.

And yes; the full enclosure canopy can be added to the Gen-3 AirCam with the third seat -- which Lockwood notes was designed from the start to accommodate the third seat.

Despite the potential additional loads, the Gen-3 configuration is readily upgradeable with the addition of a LOT more power -- enhancing normal operations as well as single engine performance with Lockwood Aircraft's new, upgraded 115-horsepower Rotax 912 power package.

Aero-TV's Tom Patton talked with AirCam's Phil Lockwood at AirVenture 2019 about these recent developments.
