Aero Jib

The Aero Jib is a widely used modular arm and is a great tool to achieve multiple shots when a telescopic arm is not needed. The Patriot Aero Jib has been customized for safe use with our Patriot Classic car. Our modifications are specific to the action of the arm and our car for stability and safety making it a one of a kind. When the time comes for a modular arm choosing the Patriot Aero Jib is your best choice.

Built-in adjustable dampening provides the fluid head feel to which most accomplished camera operators have become accustomed. This feature sets the Aerocrane Jib apart, allowing the operator to go beyond the restrictions of conventional camera support systems.

In addition, Aerocrane’s heavyduty four-way leveling head provides an extremely stable platform, which compensates up to 5 degrees. Two regular-sized shipping cases house the Aerocrane Jib Arm in its basic configuration (excluding the counterweights), which allows you to build an arm reach from 3’ (0.92m) to 5’ (1.53m). The additional remote head package increases the arm reach to 9’ (2.74m). The Aerocrane sealed lead counterweights, combined with a sliding weight, allow the operator to attain the perfect balance with any camera package, at any length.

The Aerocrane Jib Arm also features a fully adjustable front camera bracket, as well as a choice of Mitchell or 150 mm Sachtler bowl offset arm, which allow for a maximum travel of 9'8" (2.94m). Versatility and flexibility are the trademarks of the Aerocrane Jib Arm. The Aerocrane has given countless
professionals more freedom of choice to create those “special shots”, without the compromises imposed by competing jib arms. When mounted on a dolly, the stable and smooth Aerocrane Jib Arm easily delivers compound moves with minimal time and effort.
