Our aircraft costs a fraction of the traditional spray aircraft and its operating costs will be about 50% lower than the typical turbine or piston spray aircraft. Lower costs = higher profits + more competitive rates
An average of 10 pilots are killed annually in the US while flying spray missions. We give you the option of flying safely and remotely, from a ground control station and supercharger with controls that resemble actual aircraft controls or simply a laptop computer and some additional hardware.
The Heavy1 carries a 200 gal hopper (wet/dry), allowing for coverage of 80 acres in 15 minutes (at 2.5 gpa) over the target. Spraying ULV rates yields coverage of 400 acres in 1 hr (at 0.5 gpa). The Heavy2 model will carry a 400+ gal hopper.
The US aerial application fleet burns about 125,000,000 gallons of Jet-A and 100LL fuel every year. We can stop this waste while putting more money into the operators' pockets. (That's what they call a win-win)
We do not believe in halfway measures and are committed to providing a real and meaningful option for spray operators. We want to give you, the operator/pilot, the choice to move beyond your current aircraft by replacing your fleet when it is most cost-effective to do so with one of our aircraft. Our lineup, with the exception of the Light model, are true replacements for full-size GA spray aircraft, and their specifications speak for themselves.
If you are a current spray operator in the US or anywhere in the world, please contact us to let us know about your particular situation and how Edison can offer you a better option. Our biggest selling points to the operators are the 48% reduction in operating costs, improved safety, and likely lower insurance rates for low-time operators. We are here to help you, the operator, so please get in touch and tell us how we can best accomplish this. Thank you and fly safe!
