Our ground crew members mix products, prepare loads and refuel the aircraft after each landing making them an integral part of the aerial application operation. Trust between pilots and the ground crew is paramount. Ground crew members are constantly on alert for anything out of place on the aircraft and are a second set of eyes on the maps before they reach the pilot's hands. They are usually the first to arrive each day and the last to leave. Each year before our season starts all of the ground crew and office staff get together for a training day. All of our employees are trained in using a fire extinguisher, how to handle pesticides along with the proper way to mix them, the proper way to approach and board an aircraft and Meyer Agri-Air's safety management system. At Meyer Agri-Air we take safety seriously and it is our #1 priority, to accomplish that we ensure that all of our employees are well trained and proficient in their duties.
