Aerial Application

Just four of the reasons many forward thinking agri businesses are switching to aerial application for their spraying and fert requirements.

With 20 years of aerial application experience, and a fully equipped fleet of aircraft, loaders and support vehicles, Helispecs is fast becoming the operator of choice.

With highly accurate and fully calibrated  differential global positioning systems (DGPS) we  log all the details of the job undertaken and provide you with individual reports supplied to each and every client of the area treated as proof of product placement.

All aerial application requests must be ordered on the aerial application request form located in our downloads section.

Why choose aerial application over ground rigs?

  • Fast and timely application
  • Large areas covered in short periods of optimum weather,
  • Zero paddock or crop damage from wheel ruts,
  • Zero soil compaction,
  • Professional accurate application
  • Eliminates the transfer of weeds, diseases or pests between areas.
