Bus/Financial - Aerospace / Aviation / Space / aerial photography
English term or phrase: airtime
This is from the preface to a book written by an American photographer. The book shows aerial photography of a city. The photographs were taken from a helicopter.
I have no idea what "airtime" means in this case as I don't see that it can have anything to do with "Sendezeit" or "Sprechzeit".

"At only $500 an hour, Dennis flies a poor man’s helicopter, but that is just fine with me, as that means more time over the city, which gives me the ability to take chances with **airtime**."

Thank you for your help.

Flugzeit/-dauer
Explanation:
... also die dem Fotografen zur Verfügung stehende Zeit "in der Luft". Wegen des aus Sicht des Fotografen niedrigen Stundensatzes des Piloten konnte er mehr Flugzeit über der Stadt und damit mehr Zeit für seine Fotografien einplanen.
