South Dakota Aviation Association
Crop Protection

Our Mission

The South Dakota Aviation Association is an organization comprised of pilots, business owners and allied industry representatives. We use aircraft to assist agricultural producers in the production of food, fiber and biofuel. Our pilots take to the skies to not only protect crops, but also rangeland, timber and areas threatened by fire.

Our organization takes pride in land stewardship and our focus on the safety of agricultural aviation.
