After Owner Scott Petersen earned his pilot’s license in 1980, he pursued his dream of becoming an Aerial Applicator. He earned his Aerial Application license in 1996 and started Pontiac Flying Service in Pontiac, Illinois to provide spray services and crop dusting to the area.
That first summer, Scott covered 846 acres for local farms. Today, with the help of a great team and supportive community, approximately 300,000 acres a summer benefit from the services we provide from the air. We are AgSync compatible, which allows customers to give Pontiac Flying Service remote access to spray their fields conveniently and accurately.
