Throughout the 80's and 90's Battlefords Airspray trained ag pilots as required for the spray business using a Champ or a Cessna 140 for initial training and then solo experience in an Ag Aircraft like a Piper PA25 or a Cessna Ag Truck. In 1999 we decided to initiate a formal training program and created a unique Agricultural Aviation Training Program. We operate the only training school in Canada where the total training program is conducted in Agricultural Aircraft.
