Our Fleet

EXPANDING FLEET

KASI Aviation Services Inc. has recently expanded to a fleet of 6 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 (as measured to the standards of the Geological Survey of Canada). 4 out of 6 Navajo are PA-31-310 and the 2 others are PA-31-350 Chieftains.
