Celebrating 65 years of flying excellence

AT-502A

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.

Performance Notes:

  • AT-502A with PT6A-60AG engine has 1050 SHP at 1700 RPM.
  • Comfortable, functional cockpit gives pilots panoramic visibility.
  • Impressive power-to-weight ratio allows short takeoff rolls and amazing climb rates.
