PZL Mielec M-18 Dromader
Based on the designs of Leland Snow, considered to be the Father of Modern Agricultural Aviation, the Dromader is the workhorse of our Fixed Wing Fleet. Utilizing an S.T.C. developed by Bill Hubler, we have converted our fleet to a Honeywell TPE 331-10 Power Plant, which provides reliable performance. With the 1000 Thermodynamic Horsepower generated by these engines, the Dromader can efficiently haul full loads day in, and day out. This coupled with a safety record that is second to none in the Agricultural Aviation Industry, is the reason that they form the core of our Fixed Wing Fleet.
