Aside from ATO, they also have certificate for the pilots’ English language proficiency, and also a valid flight simulator certificate.

Our first business activity was been built on the quality of the service, efficiency and our clients’ satisfaction. Aside from the usual aerial spraying activities, such as spraying, fogging of various crops and woods or fertilizer spraying, we also dealt with landmine clearance of the afforested areas of Bosnia and Herzegovina by destroying impassable and overgrown sections via aerial spraying.
We also have to mention aerial spraying of swamp areas with the purpose of suppressing mosquito populations, and also mosquito control in bigger towns where aerial spraying is still necessary.
At the moment we are the only company left that is doing this type of work in the territory of the Republic of Croatia.
