NAAA's Free* Wind Tower Safety Stuffers

NAAA's Wind Tower Outreach Campaign Offers Tools to Inform Stakeholders of  the Risks to Ag Pilots and Farmers 

The prospect of converting high winds into big dollars is an enticing proposition for landowners, but one that can have far-reaching consequences for farmers and aerial applicators without careful planning. To ensure that farmers are fully informed before making decisions about wind energy development, NAAA encourages members to participate in our Wind Tower Education Campaign. NAAA launched the campaign in 2010 to raise awareness about the worrisome effects of wind energy development on agriculture and aviation. That message is articulated in a series of wind tower ad slicks and radio scripts—and now in NAAA’s new wind tower safety stuffers.

Designed to fit into a No. 10 envelope, simply slip a wind tower insert in along with the invoices you normally send to your aerial application customers. The double-sided safety stuffers are printed on glossy, four-color paper, and available in packets of 100.  Best of all, they are 100% free to NAAA Operator Members while supplies last.

Let's Be Fair About Sharing The Air

Over the past 13 years there have been 11 fatalities involving collisions with towers, including, most recently, in August 2013 when an ag pilot in Oklahoma lost his life in a collision with a MET. It’s up to everybody—NAAA, its state association partners and aerial applicators—to educate the public about the consequences that ill-planned wind energy development can have on agricultural and aviation.
