ga-8

In an official email from Col. Richard Griffith, Indiana Wing Commander, it was announced that Indiana Wing will be the permanent home of a CAP Gippsland GA-8 Airvan, in addition to the other 8 Cessna 172 and 182 aircraft in the wing arsenal. This brings the total aircraft count in Indiana Wing to 9 total.

The Gippsland GA-8, in CAP configuration, is equipped with the ARCHER imaging system (Airborne Real-time Cueing Hyperspectral Enhanced Reconnaissance), enabling the aircraft to perform advanced searches for things like missing persons, missing aircraft, and other items or structures programmed into the aircraft's imaging system.

To read more on the ARCHER system view the pdfARCHER Fact Sheet from CAP.
