Bombardier Aerospace has approved RCFontana as a training provider to teach technicians how to polish landing light, wingtip, walkway and emergency light lenses. The approval currently covers the Canadair Regional Jet line and should be expanded to the Dash 8 series shortly, according to company founder Ray Fontana.
Thanks to the many miracles of modern optics, modern aerial surveillance crews can zoom in their lenses from improbable distances and get razor-sharp images. But those images do little additional good if they can’t be downloaded to ground-based controllers. For that you need to begin with a good, solid sensor mount.
