Cottingham bought Petty Flying Service, an aerial application firm that
started as part of the American Dusting Company, from Virgil Petty in 1973.
Located in Munday, Texas, 75 miles north of Abilene, the business had two
airplanes, airport, office, loading facility and hangar. Jim built the operation
up to one turbine Air Tractor
and four Cessnas that were used on the Texas Boll Weevil Eradication Program.
Today the business
is run by his son, Ryan. Ryan is the pilot as well as the owner. We still
have the main base in Munday, with a satellite base in Seymour. The business
now has one turbine Air
Tractor 602. The plane is equipped with the latest GPS guidance technology,
including moving map and flow control. With this equipment we are capable
of making variable rate applications, brush sculpturing, and automatic
boom control. Petty Flying Service also has an on-staff entomologist that
consults on all aspects of row crop production. We also offer various
degrees of precision farming, mapping services and custom brush application.
We are the only business in the area to offer these services.
Our main crops in
this area are cotton and wheat with pasture for cattle grazing and hunting
a close second.
Our goal at Petty Flying Service is to help you make money. That doesn't happen by making unnecessary applications or recommendations. We strive to help you make decisions that are good for your business, not only ours. By keeping your interests first, we believe we offer the best service to you. Keeping you in business is what keeps us in business.
Please call or e-mail any questions you may have regarding our business or services. Thanks for time and interest in Petty Flying Service.
