Here are the reasons why your personal cameras are not allowed on board the flight:
1- Safety Issue: Personal cameras are a distraction; customers fail to listen and/or follow instructions due to an inordinate amount of focus on camera equipment (either on the ground or in the air).
2- Safety Issue: During takeoff and landing the Customer’s hands are holding onto the instructor during the critical times (takeoff and landing), so for safety reasons it is important your hands are not encumbered.
3-You are not allowed to use our mount because: Cowboy Up makes a record of each flight.
4-You are not allowed to use our mount because: Our boom mount is subject to failure and cameras have been lost or broken due to mount failure. We do not want to be responsible for lost or broken camera equipment. The possibility of your camera falling from thousands of feet is very real.
5-Personal cameras and be time consuming to setup, particularly when the customer is not well versed in its operation. The instructor is often waiting on the customer to “figure out” their camera and how best to mount it.
The totality of these reasons has caused us to implement the no personal camera rule. Sorry no exceptions.
