Skywork Helicopters has invested considerable resources researching and developing technology that can lead New Zealand towards safer application practices. The company operates controlled flow meters, anti-drift booms and satellite navigation (DGPS) for precision and optimum application of agri-chemical solutions.

Our innovative mobile mixing centres with rooftop helipads, contain all water and chemical with support equipment. This method of containment prevents risk of environmental ground seepage and spillage into creeks, rivers and ponds.
