Helinet Aviation, Patriots Jet Team Debut 'CineJet' At NBAA-BACE

High-Speed L-39 & SHOTOVER F1 UHD Platform For Motion Picture, Television, And OEM Aircraft Promotion

Helinet Aviation has unveiled CineJet, the industry's first, Aero L-39 Albatros jet featuring a customized gyro-stabilized SHOTOVER F1 camera system designed for high-speed aerial cinematography. Developed in partnership with Patriots Jet Team, CineJet provides optimal jet aircraft performance, excellent maneuverability, and unprecedented camera angle options due to the sleek profile of the aircraft and the innovative mounting of the F1 camera platform.

CineJet was developed to address the growing demand to shoot high-speed objects for television, feature films, high-performance photography, scientific research, and commercial OEM aircraft marketing. The SHOTOVER F1 used by Helinet on CineJet is specifically tailored for the unique capabilities of the jet platform, providing incredible dynamic range and unsurpassed 8K image quality at elevated speeds exceeding 350 knots and during maneuvers approaching 3G's. The open platform design of the F1 system allows for future resolution growth and a comprehensive range of professional camera and lens combinations depending on the needs of each client, and as new technology comes to market.  Further increasing the functionality and capabilities of CineJet is a specially developed multiple antenna array, installed by RF Film Inc., to deliver high definition video, GPS data, and ground-to-air audio communication.

"We're raising the bar in terms of what productions can capture from aerial cinematography," said Helinet CEO Kathryn Purwin. "No existing aerial platform offers the same level of performance, flexibility, and unique image gathering capabilities."

"Patriots Jet Team is extremely proud to launch the new CineJet high-speed cinematography platform with Helinet, and we look forward to providing productions with a turnkey solution for high-velocity camerawork," said Patriots Jet Team Founder and Owner Randy Howell.

"We are thrilled to support Helinet and Patriots Jet Team with a customized 6-axis gyro stabilized SHOTOVER F1 camera platform for cutting-edge aerial cinematography," said SHOTOVER CEO Brad Hurndell.  

The aircraft will be flown by Helinet's VP of Aerial Film Production, Kevin LaRosa II and Patriots Jet Team Founder, Randy Howell. For over 16 years Kevin has served the film industry's top productions as a stunt pilot and aerial coordinator, and is a member of SAG and the Motion Picture Pilots Association. Randy has accumulated more than 23,000 hours of flight time and has over 30 years of flying experience with United Airlines. He has been an advanced instructor in aerobatics, formation, UPRT as well as a Check Airman and Simulator Instructor in a multitude of aircraft.
