Thursday Afternoon Lineup
  • NAAREF Safety Session - NAAA and NAAREF are proud to continue offering this educational and popular session, which kicked off at last year's NAAA Convention. This safety program is presented by the people that bring you the PAASS Program and is a must-attend event for all attendees, regardless of experience level. This year's session will discuss ethics as it applies to everyday life in the ag aviation industry. You can never learn enough about safety as an operator and pilot in the aerial application industry. To be held on Thursday, Dec. 11 from 1:15 - 2:30 p.m. at The Galt House.
  • Cover Crops Session - Interested in learning more about cover crop seeding? Aerial applicators are uniquely qualified to help farmers meet their cover crop objectives because no method of application can seed more acres of cover crops within the allowable window to get good establishment more quickly than an ag aircraft. Cover crops could be a real boon to your business! To be held Thursday, Dec. 11 from 2:45 - 4:15 p.m.
  • "Ask the Expert" Speed Mentoring Session - If you've been in the industry less than five years, don't miss NAAA's "Ask the Expert" Speed Mentoring Session. It's a fast-paced orientation session for new and prospective ag pilots designed to shed light on what an aerial applicator's life is really like. A series of 10-minute speed mentoring rounds will be led by experienced operators and pilots, insurance representatives, regulatory personnel and ag schools. This is your chance to pose questions to industry experts in a smaller group setting than Compaass Rose. To be held Thursday, Dec. 11 from 2:45 - 4:15 p.m. at The Galt House.
