172s

1979 172N – 32D

This is the 172 that started JAV Imagery. 32D spent the bulk of its life in Bethel, Alaska. JAV’s first season 32D completed capture an entire fleet of twins was unable to fly. It’s second season was an adventure down Alaska’s “Lost Coast” to Juneau and back. In fall of 2016 Steph ferried 32D to Washington to kick off its L48 flying life. As part of our fleet, this plane has been upgraded with twin Garmin G5’s, a GTX375 GPS navigator / ADS-B In-Out transponder, a second comm and a fuel flow meter.

1979 172N – 99D

99D came to us from Kansas where it’d been sitting for a long time in a quiet hangar. Steph and Josh ferried it to Washington in 2016 for its camera mods and it’s become one of EagleView’s favorite aircraft. The combination of long range tanks, 160hp engine, and excellent pilots have made 99D one of the most efficient in the EagleView fleet. Under JAV’s ownership, 99D has been complimented with a fuel flow meter and full Garmin suite of twin G5’s, a GTN650, second comm radio and an ADS-B In/Out transponder.

1979 172N – 28F

JAV found 28F living a storied life in the Pacific Northwest flying primarily from the mainland north of Seattle to the San Juan Islands and back for a fisheries oriented technology company. It sports long range tanks and had been upgraded with 180hp engine. As part of JAV’s fleet, 28F has been complimented with a fuel flow meter and full Garmin suite of twin G5’s, a GTN650, second comm radio and an ADS-B In/Out transponder.

1982 172P – 112

112 spent time in Alaska and Utah before JAV found it in St. George. This P model came with 180hp engine and long range tanks. JAV has installed a fuel flow meter, ADS-B In/Out transponder and has plans for a full radio upgrade in fall 2020.

1979 172N – 17E

17E was picked up from Florida where it had not been flown much during its life. With only 2100hrs on the airframe 17E is JAV’s lowest time aircraft. It’s currently equipped with and ABS-B transponder, standard Cessna radios, a 160hp engine, and long range tanks. By the 2020-21 season the avionics will be upgraded and the plane may receive a 180hp engine upgrade.

1978 172N – 8WY

Another Alaska acquisition, 8WY was in service with a remote Alaska school district where it picked up children from village airstrips on the Kuskokwim river and brought them to class in Aniak. Equipped with bushwheels and a 180hp engine it was quite the school bus. JAV has renovated this plane by removing the bushwheels and Atlee Dodge seats then installing a fully certified Dynon SkyView avionics system with a GNS430W navigator. JAV also installed Flint Tip Tanks providing over 60 gallons of usable fuel.

1978 172N – 9FU

9FU also came to JAV in Alaska. It was living a modest existence with a private owner in Anchorage. As with 8WY, JAV installed a fully certified Dynon SkyView avionics system with a GNS430W navigator and Flint Tip Tanks providing over 60 gallons of usable fuel.

Aztecs

In addition to the 172 fleet, JAV also currently operates 10 Piper Aztecs. The Aztec fleet are ‘E’ and ‘F’ models, both turbo and non-turbo engines. The Aztec fleet has a wide range of avionics packages and all planes are ADS-B compliant.

Tailwheel's

1949 Cessna 195

53A is the JAV Maintenance Manager chase plane. This classic spent the majority of its life in the desert Southwest, which of, course wonderfully preserved its airframe. JAV found this plane hiding in a hangar just up the road from St. George. It’d not been started in 11 years and after a bit of love from our Maintenance Manager, it fired right up! 53A flies straight as an arrow and requires an experienced tailwheel pilot’s stable approach to land without hop…or a ground loop.

1950 Piper PA-20

The first plane to become part of our fleet in 2011. This is an original tailwheel Pacer with a beefed-up main gear, Alaska Bushwheel tailwheel, 150hp engine and a borer climb prop. The Pacer has lived in Kotzebue, Wasilla and Juneau. It currently resides at Merrill Field and takes Steph, Josh, their new daughter Hannah and their dog Tucker on adventures throughout Alaska.
