About Bio Flight
Bio Flight is an Aircraft Operator that has specialised in “Special missions” and Aerial Data Acquisition.
Though our idealistic and ambitious approach to aviation, we have created an organisation that offers a very cost effective platform for multiple types of data acquisition.
Bio Flight was founded in 1997 by the former Danish environmental consultancy company Bioconsult, as a necessity for data collection in connection with environmental assessments.
In 2010 Bioflight was sold of to Jesper Padborg and Michael Frørup who made the foundation of Bioflight as we know it today.
Today, Bio Flight is an independent company with a strong relation to environmental flights in connection with offshore wind farms and wildlife monitoring program’s.
In the past years Bio Flight has developed and has acquired a lot of expertise in many different types of aerial data acquisition.
To mention a few, the Bio Flight fleet has been widely recognised to be a sublime platform for aerial photogrammetry and LiDAR.
This is due the fact, that our fleet of Vulcanair P68’s represent one of the most stabile and reliable aircrafts in its category.
We do not currently have any vacancies, but we are always looking for talented pilots that can handle the challenging job of being a survey pilot. Please send us your CV, a written letter of recommendation from a previous employer or aviation professional, as well as a short introduction and your motivation for wanting to fly for Bioflight.
#1 What is Bioflight?
Bioflight is an aircraft operator that specialises in special mission operations. Our home base is outside Copenhagen, Denmark. From this location, we dispatch our fleet to operate at any location around the world upon client demands.
#2 Which services does Bioflight provide?
Bioflight provides a platform for aerial data acquisition, which includes specialised aircraft and experienced crew.
#3 Does Bioflight provide sensors for aerial data acquisition?
Bioflight does not provide sensors for aerial data acquisition. We do provide an aircraft which can facilitate most of the commonly used sensors on the market. Our clients provide their own sensors.
By not having sensors within our organisation, we maintain a non-competitive position and focus on our core competencies. Our clients do the same by outsourcing flight operations to us.
#4 What kind of aircraft does Bioflight operate?
Bioflight operates the Vulcanair/Partenavia P68.
See more under the fleet page.
#5 Do Bioflight aircraft have a photographic hatch?
Yes, all aircraft in the Bioflight fleet are equipped with a standard Vulcanair 63 cm x 46 cm photographic hatch, or a modification thereof to accomodate larger sensors.
#6 Does Bioflight dry lease its aircraft?
Bioflight does not dry lease aircraft.
We are very proud of our product and an important part of our product is our skilled flight crew.
Our friendly and cooperative flight crew are known for their effectiveness in assisting the clients’ task specialists in maximising operational productivity.
#7 What kind of special operations does Bioflight do?
We are engaged in following types of operations:
– Visual Environmental Offshore Surveys.

– Aerial photography and LiDAR.
– Any task that involves flight operation with the purpose off collecting data from above.
#8 What makes Bioflight the preferred partner in special mission flight operations?
Our four cornerstones:
Compliance with our four cornerstones are supported by:
– New, reliable and cost/effective aircraft.
– Experienced and specially trained flight crew.
– Helpful and competent staff that have the skills and motivation to ensure a stabile and effective operation.
– A wide network within the aerial survey community and general aviation. This facilitates effective flight related services, such as handling, fuel deliveries, line maintenance and AOG response effectiveness.
– Very competitive pricing.
#9 My organisation operates aircraft of our own, so why should I engage in a collaboration with Bioflight?
To match an existing fleet to a growing list of tasks is always a puzzle and when winning a big task, the same questions always arise: Can we manage with our own fleet? And if so, can we take on more ad-hock work during the season?
By collaborating with Bioflight, you do not have to ask those questions any more, as you can take full advantage of a wet leasing arrangement. By assigning Bioflight on the long term tasks, you have ensured availability at the same time as you have released resources to consentrate on ad hock tasks that might lead to bigger projects in the future.
And when the task is over, the Bioflight aircraft goes home, and you are left with quality data and no more expenses cover. In other words: You ensure availability when an aircraft is needed and save the expenses when the aircraft is no longer needed. Request a quote, and perhaps you will find that Bioflight operations are more cost/effective than your own?
#10 What is the price?
The price is good and competitive, that’s for sure! Naturally the price varies with the location, weather demands, the season and the nature of the task.
