First Zeusch Aviation aircraft registration on The Netherlands registry - Beechcraft B200 Super King Air – PH-ZAZ – was already configured to support medevac and charter missions and now the aircraft is also equipped with a brand new AVCON removable mapping window, located in the aircraft belly, which enables aerial mapping capabilities.  The modifications support the company’s focus on delivering high-standard mapping and relay services and serves to enhance the aircraft value.

The new window increases terrestrial visibility to ensure accurate data collection to support detailed map creation. It has also undergone a complete overhaul of both engines in preparation for its expanded offering. The multi-purpose aircraft is available for mapping missions for private individuals, governmental associations and corporations who want to establish the geospatial baseline of an area’s topography, natural landscape, built environment and more.  

Following a successful series of mapping flights performed in Denmark this May, the aircraft will begin mapping operations throughout the whole European continent this summer. Zeusch is also planning on expanding the company’s reach beyond Europe. Managing Director Herman van Kranenburg says, “Mapping is a seasonal activity requiring clear skies and good weather to support the systematic collection of topographical data. To minimise aircraft downtime, we plan to fly the aircraft in Europe during the spring and summer, and then relocate it to regions where the weather is more suitable for mapping during our winter months.” 

PH-ZAZ complements the existing Zeusch fleet of two King Air C90A types of which one is outfitted for broadcast relay missions and the other for mapping.  Previously registered in the UK as G-MEDZ, and operated by Zeusch, PH-ZAZ has been repositioned to Lelystad Airport, home of Zeusch Aviation.  A second, recently acquired Beechcraft B200 Super King Air is currently being ferried from North America to The Netherlands where it will join the trio of King Airs to make a total of four aircraft in the Zeusch fleet.

“We are delighted to have placed our first aircraft on our national registry; it’s a real achievement for our young company. We’re also pleased to maintain our loyalty to the King Airs as there are positive economics associated with keeping a consistent fleet type. The aircraft performance delivers the capabilities needed to support the demanding missions we fly, and we look forward to adding more to our fleet in the near future,” added van Kranenburg.
