Wolfe Air/Gyron and Mars Curiosity

August 22, 2012


 August 9, 2012

In 2011 Wolfe Air & Gyron teamed up with JPL and NASA for a couple of months in places like Edwards Air Force Base, Furnace Creek and our base at HawthorneAirport. The purpose of the operation was to test various parameters of the landing profile for Mars Curiosity. The actual antenna array that’s now up on Mars was mounted to the nose of Wolfe Air’s A-Star helicopter for almost two months. Jim Montgomery, part of the JPL Curiosity team, said that “everybody at Wolfe Air should be proud of helping to enable a safe landing on Mars for Curiosity!”

We are indeed proud to have supported some of the nicest and smartest people on this planet while they gathered the necessary data to make the miraculous Mars landing the flawless achievement it ended up being.

UPDATED WITH CLIPS: Gyron Captures P-51’s for

March 17, 2009

gyronp511In the final week of February, 2009, a team of aerial cinematography experts, including Aerial D.P. Doug Holgate, Aerial Coordinator / Camera Pilot Kevin Larosa and Gyron Technician / Producer Scott Smith converged at the Friedken’s Comanche Ranch south of Houston near the Mexican border to capture an amazing Air Show routine. Three vintage P-51 Mustangs were flown by Dan Friedkin, Ed Shipley and lead pilot Jim Beasley for incredible footage that will be used by in Ed Shipley’s latest project called ‘The Horsemen Cometh’. Major “Max” Moga, who was on board the Eurocopter B3 helicopter with the Hi Def Gyron mounted on the nose to capture the three Mustang’s routine, will narrate the documentary. Moga was very impressed with the Gyron system and mentioned that he had never seen aerial footage captured this well before.

According to Holgate, “we were able to go out to the end of the Fujinon 42 times lens and hold the entire Air Show from beginning to end with the three P-51’s wingtip to wingtip and sometimes even tighter, with total stability.” Noted Larosa, “the stability of the Gyron allowed us to stand off and pick our times to move closer to the Mustangs when we needed to” while Holgate added that “the ability of the Gyron system to hold stability at the end of the lens while pulling lateral G’s or in a rapid descent is key to getting these types of moves captured”.
