From our CEO
Our goal is nothing less than to replace every single turbine and piston Ag spray aircraft with one of our electric models. Our spray operators and pilots deserve nothing less than to operate more profitable, cleaner, safer, and more efficient spray aircraft! It's about time they've been liberated from dependence on foreign oil as well!
