Over the Top Aviation holds open house at new facility

Over the Top Aviation held an open house-customer appreciation day at its new facility in Cash, Arkansas on March 7.


The event, which featured a catered barbecue lunch and tour of the hanger facility, was attended by over 100 people. Owner John Smith said it was a chance to thank customers for their loyalty, and let others learn what sets Over the Top Aviation apart.


“We are truly a full service aerial application company,” Smith said. “With our fleet of aircraft, we offer farmers a custom application experience, not just a ‘one size fits all approach.'”



The Over the Top aircraft fleet, which was on static display in the spacious new hanger, features Air Tractor 402 and 802 fixed-wing aircraft as well as a Bell 47 G5 helicopter. Smith personally pilots the company’s iconic blue and silver Bell UH-1 “Huey” helicopter which has become a fixture in Northeast Arkansas rice and soybean country.


Smith says new seed varieties often require expensive new application technologies that farmers can’t afford to waste, “In these days of low commodity prices and high input costs, growers need to know that the products they’re paying for are getting down on the crops as efficiently as possible.”
