COLOMBO (News1st): An aircraft belonging to CGG Aviation Canada, capable of geological surveying, had landed in Sri Lanka on November 10 last year, officials said.

The aircraft had left for the Maldives the following day, the additional director-general of the Civil Aviation Authority P. A. Jayakantha said.

He added that the purpose of the brief stop is to rest the crew on board.

CGC Aviation Canada has been engaged in geological surveying for more than 85 years and has been using high technology aircraft for this purpose.

The aircraft has the capability of exploring the land, sea, deep-sea and oceanic systems while being in the air.

The CGG Multi-Physics Department has developed a carefully constructed suite of airborne data acquisition systems to allow unrestricted imaging of most geological environments.

This includes owning and operating one of the world’s largest fleets of geophysically modified aircraft, and in-house design and manufacture of their airborne EM systems

CGG Aviation Canada also has the world’s largest commercially available gravity and magnetic database.
