Aircraft Information

The aircraft utilized by Dakota Aerials is a modified Piper Super Cub. The Super Cub can be safely flown at very low airspeeds and has a clamshell like door that effectively opens up the entire side of the aircraft for unobstructed camera views. Short of a helicopter, the Super Cub offers, by far, the best aerial image platform that is available. 

This platform assures clients of stunning images while still maintaining a modest fee structure
