Being an ag pilot is one of the most exciting jobs in aviation. It requires tremendous skill and precision. If you are good at and enjoy aviation video games, or enjoy the outdoors and rural living, you may be a perfect addition to the agricultural aviation industry.
Agricultural aviation is not an easy job.
It takes a significant amount of training, and the hours can be long during the busy flying season. For most pilots, agricultural aviation is a fulfilling job. Ag pilots provide an essential service to farmers, foresters and the public at large. Ag pilots love their ability to soar through the skies in beautiful and serene farm and forestry country. In many areas across the country it is also a seasonal job, which can allow for other leisure or professional opportunities in the offseason.
If you are interested in becoming an ag pilot, NAAA offers a program called Compaass Rose, a series of education sessions in which veteran ag pilots introduce potential recruits to the world of aerial application. The Ag Aviation Career Advice below contains links to several articles and resources that will give you more information about working in the agricultural aviation industry.
