Bighorn Airways’ history began as an aerial application business that provided services for local ranchers and farmers. This history continues today with turbine-powered Air Tractors and a turbine-powered helicopter. We specialize in the aerial application of insecticides and pesticides for common infestations such as mosquitoes, weevil, spurge, cheat-grass, grasshoppers, etc.
-Accurate field navigation minimizes redundant applications and skipped areas, and enables maximum ground coverage in the shortest possible time.
-Ability to work through low visibility field conditions such as rain, dust, fog and darkness increases productivity.
-Accurately monitored yield data enables future site-specific field preparation.
-Elimination of the need for human "flaggers" increases spray efficiency and minimizes over-spray.
It is well-known in the Agriculture spray community that ground-speed variables are a source of application error. That is why our spray aircraft has flow control installed to control and correct the flowrate as the ground speed changes.
