The Full Story

Cedar Ridge Aviation was created in 2011 and has only improved along the years.  Through countless hours of flight time and dedication to the trade, the pilots at Cedar Ridge are top notch.  We have 2 locations, Knox City, Texas being the main building and location: our office sits north of town on highway 6.  We utilize our sister office in Red Oak, Iowa during the summer months (June-August) to participate in the Corn Run which is a major event for numerous aviation companies from all over the United States.  
Aerial application is the main service we provide here at Cedar Ridge Aviation.  We offer application for a variety of crops including: corn, soybean, cotton, wheat, range land and pasture land along with many more.  We are well versed in applying fungicide, insecticide and foliar feeds to your land.  We utilize 502 and 802 air tractors along with Robinson R44 and Bell 206 helicopters for the aerial application services.

Helicopter hog hunting is another service we provide. Utilizing the Robinson R44 choppers and black rain ordinance AR15, you are guaranteed to hit your target. We have access to over 750, 000 acres so there are plenty of wild hogs for everyone.  We offer lodging and dinner as a part of the "hog hunt experience" package. Our hunting season is from September to the end of April. No matter the size of your party, we will accommodate to ensure a quality hunt for everyone involved. 

The Carbon sequestration program is something we are passionate and well educated about. We provide nutrient and seed aerial application along with cover crop applications.  We have experience with carbon sequestration programs and getting farmers and ranchers compliant nationwide.  From sign up to full completion, we can assist you through the entire process.
