Hey everyone,

If you are interested or know any pilots interested... Im looking for great commercial pilots that can sit Left Seat for my aerial photography business. I am a pilot myself, and photographer, and started a company doing Air to Air photography for other pilots/companies.

I have a single engine Piper that I have based in New jersey and we are flying it around the country working with other Light Aircraft owners. We occasionally get an owner who flies small Jets and those are great to photograph.

In general, looking for or hoping any referrals, for pilots all across USA or based in the North East near myself... that would feel competent in formation flying, air to air, and doing long cross countries around the States.

thats true, i do want a competent pilot that knows tight tolerance flying and comfortable near other planes in the air. I posted here to find the best of the best.

But most pilots on the Hangar forum dont really have too much time outside of their airline jobs to fly GA again.

If you know anyone who may find this work cool, please forward them over to me or email me

Unlike the US, Australia requires training & a sign-off to be qualified to fly in formation (which I have). I've even done an, admittedly small, bit of air-to-air filming. I'm in Orlando. What are you offering?
