This requires that the operator take all precautions to protect ones sight and avoid respiratory and skin exposure and follow all recommendations of the chemical manufacturers Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS). Properly installed and operated equipment will provide ample benefits to the owner of the equipment. It is the exclusive responsibility of the operator of the equipment and not of the manufacturer of the equipment to install. The consequences of improperly operated equipment and/or improper use of chemicals are detrimental to both the operator and the environment. 3 . the operator and the environment.INTRODUCTION Note: The use of Aerial Application of Agricultural Chemicals is an area that is very delicate and dangerous if not handled correctly. maintain and operate the system while insuring all safeguards are adhered to.

as well as liquid fertilizer. This allows for more coverage per load. Aerolites and others. taken the system to the next generation with new pump combinations and spray heads designed to be more reliable. herbicides and maturing agents. after years of use in the field. The standard chemical tank of the GT 500 spray system is translucent fiberglass so one can determine exactly how much liquid remains in the tank. Better results are achieved with fewer chemicals. The spray system is unique in that it is designed to produce droplet sizes in a range of 60-250 microns with 95% consistency.8 hectare/min. electric pump that is capable of a flow rate of over 8 gallons/minute (30 liters/min. 12 volt. Ultra-low volume (ULV) systems have successfully been shown to use as little as 1/10. of the liquid volume that is used in conventional crop spraying. or less.4 liters/hectare) of total spray. Standard equipment on the spray system is a high volume. The spray system has been customized to fit the Quicksilver GT 500. the GT 500 spray system will cover 96 acres (39 hectare) per load. These flow rates will enable your spray system equipped aircraft to be used in applying liquid fertilizer and some herbicide and fungicide applications requiring higher volumes. the technology and the results obtained by it leave no question that low and ultra low volume CDA spraying is a viable alternative in today’ s environmentally aware world. Carrying a 24-gallon (91 liter) load. fungicides. air driven by multi-blade propellers.) at 15 psi. plant diseases and weeds. A controlled droplet spectrum of a narrow range is made possible through use of the high-speed rotating grooved and toothed atomizing cup. insecticides. The tank and spray system can be removed in about 30 minutes to operate the aircraft with two seats for recreational flying. This enables the spray system to be used for all areas of pesticides. constant speed. 4 .3 meters).BASIC USE AND DESIGN CRITERIA The Aerial Application Agricultural Spray System is a culmination of more than 20 years of development of Controlled Droplet Application (CDA) technology by such AG companies as Broyhill. The pump system utilizes a remote on/off switch as standard equipment. We have. This size range is the ideal killing range for most insects. the GT 500 spray system will cover an impressive 7 acres/minute (2.) when spraying insecticide at a rate of 1 quart/acre (2. Micronair. With a spray speed of 60 mph (52 knots) and an effective swath width up to 60 feet (18. The GT 500 is equipped with a 24-gallon (91 liter) tank. First used on Quicksilver’ s Ultralight in 1982.

When installing the spray system on the aircraft. or larger. these concrete benefits stand out: *Significant reduction in application cost by utilizing an ultralight/light aircraft. and greater adherence of chemical to the leaves. And. *Notable improvement in coverage and control through consistent application of the best suited droplet size for better penetration of crop canopy. This technology is referred to as CDA. *Aircraft performance is at its best owing to the designed low system weight and the Spray System minimal drag. CDA is a proven way to produce uniform droplet size. 5 . Larger airplanes and helicopters can not operate near that speed because their downwash disrupts the controlled droplet mist application. CONTROLLED DROPLET APPLICATION The spray system's nozzles utilize centrifugal force instead of hydraulic pressure to create spray patterns. This wide variation in droplet size causes inefficient application of the chemical. The chemical and its target determine the proper size droplet. Droplets from a conventional nozzle range from very small to very large. The objective of CDA is to produce the proper size droplet to effectively apply the chemical. and no recharging on battery back up. on the other hand. Hydraulic nozzles. Herein lies the advantage of CDA as compared to hydraulic atomization. according to a NASA study done in the 1960’ s. or Controlled Droplet Application. *Important time savings due to fewer fill-ups. The key to this successful application is determined primarily by droplet size. The spray system was designed to promote economically and ecologically sound spray methods that are the future of agricultural aviation. you are spraying at near the ideal spraying speed for chemical application: 44 mph (70 km/h). The aim when spraying is to uniformly cover the target surface with a given concentration of chemical. more acres/hectares covered per load and per day. Combining the low initial cost of a CDA spray system with the low operating expense of an ultralight/light aircraft. emit droplet size that may vary from 10 to 500 microns. decreased drift potential and evaporation. the possibility of tremendous cost savings to the world's agricultural industries is within reach. Special Air Services rotary spray nozzles break the droplets into a more uniform size.

2. The flow/pressure control valve should also be left in the open position until you are ready to begin sprayer application in order for the liquid to be continuously mixed. The sprayers must be properly lubricated before and after each tank of material is applied. 3. It is important that after completion of an application that the plane and equipment be thoroughly rinsed with clean water. When filling the tank with the chemical solution a manual or motorized pump should be used to avoid spilling any liquid outside of the tank. The sprayers will constantly rotate during flight and will determine the size and dispersion of the droplets during application. preset flags indicating the prescribed flight path or a GPS system. Special precautions must be taken when using these types of material to avoid any possibility of combustion. Note: Some materials may be determined by the manufacturer to be flammable. The type of fluid recommended is light oil such as transmission fluid. Do not turn on pump until ready to spray to avoid the possible discharge of chemicals. The oil should be applied until you visually see the oil coming out of the front of the sprayer. If any spillage occurs. the spill must be thoroughly and properly cleaned. In order to protect neighboring areas from contamination and/or damage we recommend a minimum of meters of buffer zone between the neighboring fields or areas. The area to be sprayed should be properly mapped out beforehand utilizing either a moving flagman (who is properly protected). The oil should be applied using an oil can with a tube attached and the oil injected into the opening on the side of the sprayer head assembly as shown in illustration #XXX. 3. General Maintenance 1.
