How He Does It
Jim first determines if his service is the best tool to be used and when to do the job considering the needs and the weather. He finds out what product(s) need to be used and what are the alternatives available. Jim will require a description of the site to be treated; usually a plat book map with aerial photo for positive identification. He will consider all available information as to environmental concerns and issues.
Jim will decide where to land and take off, how to mix and load the aircraft and how many airplanes will be needed: this may be an airport, hay field or even a road. Jim needs approximately 2,000 feet of smooth ground to take off safely.
The day of the mission, Jim will scout the site, consider all environmental issues, weather and commence to do what he does so well. Besides flying the airplane 10 feet off the ground at 100 m.p.h. monitoring the aircraft instruments, Jim must also monitor the product coming from the airplane, the weather, hazards such as power lines, trees, buildings, cars, people and wildlife.
