Extra Power and Performance

The Air Tractor 502XP has the Xtra Power to haul a full load even on the hottest days. It’s a productive balance of an advanced airframe and engine—providing speed, capacity, and productivity in high and/or hot conditions. The 502XP will help you finish more acres in less time, with less effort. Driving that performance is the Pratt & Whitney PT6A-140AG turboprop engine. It has 867 horsepower available for takeoff all day, every day. The power is yours. Use it to your advantage.
