Weather is no longer a concern.
In some cases, Mother Nature needs a little help. We can help pollinate, dry, and protect crops to make your job a little easier this season.
Every year in the PNW, the spring rain threatens to destroy our cherry crops. Using a helicopter is one of the most efficient & effective means of drying the cherries and protecting the harvest. If you're a cherry farmer and in need of a helicopter and pilot for the upcoming season, give us a call.
Many varieties of crops are threatened by frost settling on them at a critical stage of development. On calm and clear nights, a layer of warmer air settles above the crops. The function of the helicopter is to fly over the crop and draw the warm air downwards to prevent damage to the crops.
In some cases, Mother Nature needs a little help circulating seeds and pollen. As a result of design, helicopters produce a strong and varied circulatory pattern of air below and in all directions projecting outward from the helicopter. Under the right circumstances, this feature has been shown to be very effective in aiding crop pollination.
