Located seven miles South of Hudson, Iowa, RITEL Copter Service, Inc. was established by Richard (Dick) and Thelma Green as an aerial application service.
Today, we continue to operate as a family owned and operated business.
(RI) Richard and (TEL) Thelma
Dick, a farmer himself, had a passion for flying. With the the support of his family, he started spraying with a Bell 47 helicopter to help farmers in the surrounding area protect their crops from various weed and pest pressures.
Since that time, RITEL has grown to be a superb choice in providing aerial services to local farmers and seed production companies in Iowa. For over 50 years, we have and will continue to ensure strong customer satisfaction.
Our services include helicopter aerial application. We primarily use Bell 47 helicopters as our workhorse to provide you with a precise, effective, and thorough application. We utilize Isolair spray equipment with both front and mid mounted boom systems. We offer a various variety of aerial nozzle configurations depending on application desired by customer. All our aircraft use AG-NAV GUÍA® GPS systems which we use in coordination with Surety® mapping and AgSync Aerial Application Management system to insure a precise application. Our aircraft have data logging capability which allows us to view as applied maps to ensure proper coverage of your field.
