Bioflight employs a fleet exclusively consisting of the P68. This reduces maintenance and pilot training costs, increases our operational flexibility and provides consistent cost-effective production across a wide range of survey types.
With the ability to either carry observers for low altitude visual surveys or mount advanced camera and laser systems by utilising the aircrafts’ camera hatch, we can adapt perfectly to whichever survey mission and operational requirements you may have.
Our current fleet consist of 10 Vulcanair P68’s divided into 3 Observer and 7 P68C versions.

P68 competitive advantages:
Stability is the foundation for accurate data. The high-wing configuration ensures both unobstructed ground visibility and ensures very good aerodynamic stability.
Most high resolution data acquisition requires low speed to capture as many details as possible. The Vulcanair/Partenavia is designed to have excellent controllability even at low airspeed. Lowest operational speed (Clean stall speed x 1.30 = 85kt or 157 km/h). Flexibility is the key word when it comes to the Vulcanair/Partenavia, so not only does the aircraft have excellent low speed capabilities, but it also has the largest speed range for its category. Operational range: 85kt to 160kt (157 km/h to 297 km/h) which makes the aircraft suitable for many different applications.
Bioflight is proud to have the newest fleet of Vulcanair aircraft in Europe. New aircraft improves both safety and operational stability. Maintenance and hourly inspections are a necessity to ensure a safe operation, but additional repairs is time consuming and keeps aircraft on ground when they should be flying. New aircraft reduces the ground time due to unforeseen repairs and therefore increases the operational stability.
