Frost Control

Essential Flight Operations has built a reputation for reliability in providing frost control services. Around the early part of the year, Essential brings it's operation to California to protect crops from early morning frost. We understand the importance of your crop, which is why we spend a considerable amount of time mapping the fields and preparing to be dispatched well before the call comes in. 



Our contracts are setup with a fixed rate for each helicopter and pilot on standby and a fixed flight rate per hour when the machine is flying. This arrangement dedicates the machine to the farmer for the standby time, but also allows the pilot to fly as slow as the farmer wants to do a thorough job of protecting the crop.

Essential has access to multiple helicopters for larger jobs and provides its own support equipment for fueling and maintenance in the field.
