Reach the Top Agricultural Aviation Operators

The National Agricultural Aviation Association (NAAA) represents pilots, aerial applicators, airplane manufacturers and suppliers in the industry. Members are located in 46 states, with a majority licensed as commercial applicator/operators. The agricultural aviation industry is comprised of small businesses and pilots that use aircraft to aid farmers in producing a safe, affordable and abundant supply of food, fiber and bioenergy, in addition to protecting forestry and controlling health-threatening pests.

Get Your Products in Front of Business Owners and Decision Makers

Agricultural Aviation is delivered to aviators, grower and commodity groups, key government officials and virtually every decision maker in the aerial application industry—from allied suppliers to pilots and owner/operators. In addition to being the owner of the business, 87% of agricultural aviation operators fly their own aircraft.

Today’s aircraft utilize sophisticated precision application equipment such as GPS (global positioning systems), GIS (geographical information systems), flow controls, real-time meteorological systems and precisely calibrated spray equipment to make sure the pilot is accurate in applying the correct amount of product onto the crop. On the ground, the airplanes are loaded by workers uniformed in protective clothing using closed mixing and loading containment systems to ensure safety to the environment and the worker.
