BURBANK, CA, USA, May 27, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Team5 Aerial Systems, the foremost provider of aerial camera systems to major feature films, in partnership with Phenom Camera-Ship, provided the PCS-1 aircraft to Paramount Pictures for the making of Top Gun: Maverick. The aircraft was integral in providing the ability to film high-speed aerial action sequences alongside the United States Navy during the film’s production.

Phenom Camera-Ship and Team5 Aerial Systems collaborated to develop the PCS-1 in order to provide the unique aerial cinematography platform to Hollywood’s most acclaimed aerial cinematographers. The PCS-1 was born from an Embraer Phenom 300 airframe modified to handle the demands of carrying a pair of stabilized aerial camera systems while still operating unrestricted within the FAA’s standard category.

As the only FAA certified high-speed, high altitude, pressurized filming platform utilizing latest-generation digital gimbals, the Phenom Camera-Ship (“PCS-1”) was created to fill a gap in the aerial filming industry left by much smaller, “experimental” aircraft.

The PCS-1 can operate with Shotover F1 systems mounted both fore and aft simultaneously, via a crew of 2 Pilots and up to 6 Passengers, all while flying in business-jet comfort at a speed of up to 350 knots, an altitude of up to 45,000 ft. and with a duration of over four hours.
