Revolution in Agricultural Aerial Application Technology (Patent Pending)
Edison Aerospace LLC
Edison Aerospace is an American company applying modern technology to move Agriculture into the 21st Century.
Edison Aerospace is the first company in the world that will upgrade the airplanes used by spray operators to let them do a better job at a lower cost, while keeping them safe from the dangers they face daily. Edison provides a complete package that lets the operator work all day long using the Ground Control Station. Edison Aerospace LLC is based in Miami, FL, Delaware and North Dakota.
The Heavy1 carries a 200 gal hopper (wet/dry), allowing for coverage of 80 acres in 15 minutes (at 2.5 gpa) over the target. Spraying ULV rates yields coverage of 400 acres in 1 hr (at 0.5 gpa). The Heavy2 model will carry a 400+ gal hopper.
Up to 10 pilots are killed annually in the US while flying spraying missions. We give you the option of flying safely and remotely, from a ground control station with controls that resemble actual aircraft controls or simply a laptop computer and some additional hardware.
Our aircraft costs a fraction of the traditional spray aircraft and its operating costs are approximately 48% lower than the typical turbine or piston spray aircraft. Lower costs = higher profits + more competitive rates
The US aerial application fleet burns about 125,000,000 gallons of Jet-A and 100LL fuel every year. We can stop this waste while putting more money into the operators' pockets. (That's what they call a win-win)
