Forest Protection Limited is a Global Leader in Aerial Application

Forest Protection Limited is excited to be a part of this year’s Ag Aviation Expo especially after all the uncertainty associated with the last year and a half. Nonetheless, like many other companies in this industry, throughout the pandemic, we persevered and adjusted our operations to ensure we could continue to provide our services.

Since our participation in 2019’s Expo, we’ve grown our team, and our fleet’s capacity, while also refreshing our brand. We’re looking forward to sharing our updates with old and new acquaintances in Savannah and you’ll find us at booth #405 near the Air Tractor and Portage Aircraft Specialties Ltd booths.

Until then, here is a little insight into our company.

FPL is a pioneer in the use of offset spraying. Using precision GPS tracking with aircraft-based meteorology and an advanced predictive AG-NAV® guidance system, FPL’s Accuair® Aerial Management System (AMS) automatically determines flight path offset to ensure a minimal off-target spray drift. The Accuair® system is designed to exceed aerial application guidance and control requirements.

FPL provides turnkey aerial application services. Since our inception we have been a leader in aerial forest pest management leveraging technology that we helped pioneer. Our team collaborates with customers in project planning, and we manage large-scale operations from multiple bases. In the air, our fleet of eight AT802s can be configured for ultra-low volume applications while using drift reduction technology to ensure cost-effectiveness and accuracy.
