Our Aircraft
Piper Navajo PA31
Registrations: C-GKSI, C-GKSX and C-GMEC

KASI Aviation Services Inc. operates three PA31 Piper Navajos. Our aircraft can be dedicated or modified specifically for your geophysical or photo survey project, and have been carefully put together to minimize aircraft induced magnetic noise. Our first aircraft, C-GKSI, can provide an exceptionally low figure of merit of less than 0.6 nT (as measured to the standards of the Geological Survey of Canada).

Due to increasing demands for LiDAR & amp; Airborne Camera operations, in 2014 we added a second PA31 Navajo to our fleet. C-GKSX is modified & ready to go with a 21″ x 21″ opening, suitable for a variety of Camera or LiDAR installations. All of KASI Aviation’s aircraft can be customized for the most intricate Airborne surveys, LiDAR or Airborne photo operations.

In 2015, with our first two aircraft fully booked and calls for more, KASI acquired an additional PA31 Navajo aircraft to meet the growing demands of our customers. C-GMEC came online early in July 2015 with a 21″ camera hole and long range fuel atop its list of modifications.





Other Aircraft

Due to the high demand for our services, KASI Aviation is in the process of evaluating the acquisition of a turboprop aircraft.


KASI Aviation has often had the pleasure of working with Tundra Airborne Surveys.
