The teaming up of Air Tractor and Transland for an industry fly-in in March, 2015 proved to be a model for success.
While some pilots took advantage of the perfect weather by staying home and working, those who were able to come took advantage of wet pattern testing administered by Dr. Dennis Gardisser.
Attendees came from the Texas-Oklahoma region as well as numerous states and Canada. The crowds were treated to a Texas BBQ luncheon on day one, followed by Fish Fry on day two, both thanks to Air Tractor. Many of the attendees also took advantage of the opportunity to tour the Air Tractor production facilities.
Major sponsors for the event included Dow AgroSciences and Pratt & Whitney. Additionally, industry partners such as Winfield, Roy W. Neal Jr. Insurance Agency, Lane Aviation, Chem-man Online, EGE Biodiesel, Neal Aircraft and Insero also supported the fly-in with sponsorship and on-site displays.
A report on the Texas Fly-In was included here in an edition of Ag Air Update, ag aviation’s newspaper.
