Air Tractor AT-502


The 500 gallon AT-502 series has been the most popular Air Tractor model, with over 400 planes sold. As with all Air Tractors, it is designed and manufactured to assure operators of a high level of productivity and low maintenance. For operators needing additional power for faster ferry speeds, short strip operation with big loads, or high altitude spraying, the AT-502A meets the performance requirement. The slow-turning 5-blade prop offers quieter operation in noise-sensitive communities. Aircraft is sold with customer-furnished used PT6A-45R engine.
