We're building autonomous planes to make agricultural chemical application safe, fast, and precise – even over challenging terrain.

Pyka Autonomous Airplane

Our Planes

Safe

Our autonomous flight controller keeps the pilot safely on the ground, while our airplanes fly close to the surface – a type of flying that is normally very dangerous.

Fast

Our airplanes can cruise over hills and other terrain spraying at over 70mph – bringing fast application to areas that typically have to be hand-sprayed.

Low Drift

With their onboard sensors, our airplanes can fly precise paths while spraying at exactly the right times, allowing us to compensate for wind and minimize drift. This uses less chemical per acre while decreasing accidental exposure.

Affordable

Our autonomous technology enables extremely fast and affordable application – letting even smaller farms benefit from aerial application.
