Crop duster pilots in Minden met with Alan Corr of Agri-Spray Consulting June 30 to test and adjust the equipment on their spray planes. Corr and his son Carson promote the Operation S.A.F.E. (Self-regulating Application & Flight Efficiency) program by testing agricultural aviation equipment worldwide.
Corr began his association with agricultural aviation as a crop duster pilot in the 1980’s. In 2005 he began testing spray equipment. He continued that work part-time while he worked for University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension until two years ago when he retired from the University and made his consulting business a full-time venture.
In addition to associating with ag pilots during his own time as a pilot and at the University, Corr has been involved with the Nebraska Aviation Trades Association (NATA) for a number of years. He is both a board member for the organization and their educational director. Operation S.A.F.E. was developed by a group within NATA to check for pattern uniformity and efficiency of agriculture aircraft.
