XM2 can provide a wide range of platforms and picture aircraft for nearly any situation. Ranging from vintage warbirds, to the versatile AStar and Twinstar helicopters, to a camera-equipped, high-speed jet, we offer one of the most diverse portfolios of manned aircraft available.

ASTAR (EUROCOPTER AS350B3E)

The powerful, high-performance AS350B3e is designed to carry out the most demanding missions in the most extreme weather and geographical conditions. Its exceptional lifting capability, extended range and fast cruise speed make the AS350B3e the leader in its class and the state of the art option to meet the demands of motion picture aviation and aerial cinematography. The AS350B3e is pre-wired and production ready for all aerial camera systems.

TWINSTAR (EUROCOPTER AS355N)

Pursuit Aviation worked in conjunction with SHOTOVER to develop this first-of-its-kind setup. The SHOTOVER F1, a 6-axis gyro-stabilized camera system, was vigorously tested and modified to develop the F1 RUSH, which allows the operator to capture stabilized images at high speeds and high G forces. Ideally suited for shots chasing other jet aircraft for airline commercials, space vehicle testing, government operations and air-to-air simulated dogfights for the silver screen, JETCAM can bring to life images normally reserved for only your imagination.
