Apex Helicopters offers precision aerial application services in
Texas and other nearby states. Helicopters are a particularly strong
choice for the application process because of their unparalleled
accuracy and versatility. For that reason, Apex uses helicopters
for all of its aerial applications. In addition, with our mobile
chemical trailers we both refuel and reload chemical on site, reducing
ferry time and increasing production. Our aircraft are equipped
with advanced technology including DGPS satellite guidance, data
capture, and flow control metering. These technologies ensure the
most accurate and effective aerial application.

• Fungicide, Herbicide, and Pesticide Application
We utilize the Robinson R44 Series Helicopter for our application
services. With this aircraft we carry up to 80 gallons of chemical.
We also vary our application rate depending on the specific coverage
desired by the client.
Our chemical support trailers allow us to load of chemical and
fuel on site, reducing the time spent flying back to the airport
to reload and refuel. This increases productivity, cuts the time
required to complete the job, and reduces overall cost.
GPS and Flow Control
Our AG-NAV® Guia GPS guidance system consists of an intelligent
moving map display and LED lightbar. This system gives the pilot
real-time mapping of chemical application along with precision guidance.
All flight data and chemical application data is stored in the system
where it can be later downloaded and output to a map for the customer.
Apex also uses flow rate controllers in our spray systems. This
instrument controls the rate of flow of the chemical, adjusting
the flow when the airspeed of the helicopter changes to ensure a
constant application rate. This gives us greater flexibility to
fly at slower airspeeds when maneuvering over difficult terrain
while still maintaining a specific application rate.
