Cherokee Six aids ocean research

Saturday, October 31st, 2009

Eddie Kisfaludy of San Diego uses his Cherokee Six for oceanic research. With the help of his fiancee, freelance television reporter and pilot Natasha Stenbock, Kisfaludy is marketing an aerial video surveillance system he developed. His external camera mount doesn’t require a hole in the cabin floor. His day job is to support research at the Scripps Institution of Oceanic Research, University of California San Diego. Several of the researchers there have endorsed the system, not to mention scientists outside of Scripps. On another note, watch for Natasha’s airshow video soon on AOPA Online. You’ll see more about them in an upcoming issue of AOPA Pilot.

Both Eddie and Natasha led my formation flight from San Diego to French Valley Airport to photograph the Cessna SkyCatcher. The article appears in an upcoming issue of “AOPA Pilot.”
