Scott Schertz - Modern Era

The public knows them as crop dusters, but in the aerial applicator industry, that term was rejected long ago. Scott Schertz talks about his long career in the business that began as a summer job working for his father in the early 1980s. He discusses the evolution of Schertz Aerial Service, Incorporated over the years, and about his active role in national-level organizations. At the time of the interview, Scott also served on the Federal Advisory Committee for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The interview includes a tour of one of Scott's aircraft, plus his narration of an aircraft in action.
