When the World Demands More,
Air Tractor® Delivers.
Air Tractor continues to monitor updates regarding COVID-19 and we are working with our advisors, both medical and government, as the Coronavirus continues to spread in the US.
The health of our customers and employees is a top priority. We want to do our part, and everything possible, in an effort to slow the spread of the virus; therefore, please refrain from making unnecessary visits to the factory. The only visitors should be those with official business, such as scheduled meetings or conferences, in designated areas.
We will continue to produce airplanes and parts and to deliver our products while implementing best practices within our facility to avoid the spread of the Coronavirus.
We thank you for your patience and for assisting us in this effort.
Our heritage of quality, pilot safety, innovation and customer support rides along with you every time you fly an Air Tractor.
It’s all of it. Together. Working for you.
