ASEC’s flight department grew out of a customer need to demonstrate various systems on other than government research aircraft. ASEC first acquired a Navion L-1A aircraft to support unmanned aircraft flight systems in the National Airspace. From these early beginnings in 2004, it expanded to include DHC-6-300 Twin Otter, Beech Super King Air 300 and our most recent addition a Basler conversion Douglas DC-3 aircraft. These low cost, easily configured aircraft have been ideal platforms for supporting multiple programs over the years.
ASEC flight personnel have the critical experience to conduct a variety of research and development testing. With office space conveniently located right outside Gate Two of NAS Patuxent River and two ASEC aircraft hangared within 8 miles of NAS Patuxent River, we provide convenient and cost-effective research and development testing. ASEC’s Flight Department has a 14 year history of conducting safe and efficient flight support to government and commercial partners.
