Weatherly Aircraft Heads Back Into Production

Rugged Ag Airframe Reappears On Production Scene

Weatherly Aircraft Nevada, Inc., is putting the Weatherly cropduster line back into production. The company had already started producing parts and offering services in support of Weatherly agricultural aircraft earlier this month, and anticipates starting "full aircraft production mode" sometime in June.

Weatherly stated that a combination of additional equity investments and ‘in kind’ funding of equipment and parts by strategic partners has facilitated the acceleration of Weatherly’s move to full aircraft production. The company further stated that the hiring of previous manufacturing personnel of the Weatherly aircraft have also contributed greatly to its ability to ‘fast start’ aircraft production.

The company anticipates new aircraft deliveries will be able to start before the end of the year.

Richard Corline, CEO of Weatherly, stated, “We are thrilled to be able to announce the beginning of production of the Weatherly aircraft approximately three months ahead of our original business plan. I am very proud of our hand picked team who made this achievement possible. We believe there is a one to two year backlog for the aircraft that we will be filling without significant additional marketing efforts. We couldn’t be happier with the response of the Bogalusa, LA community and its surrounding areas in assisting us in building our business quickly and efficiently. City officials, business owners, and private investors have all supported the development of our business. They have gone ‘above and beyond’ our best case expectations when we moved our operations to their city.”

Weatherly Aircraft Nevada, Inc. designs, manufactures and sells aerial application aircraft for agricultural, chemical and fire fighting applications. The Weatherly aircraft are based on an FAA issued “Type Certificate” for which the Company has the licensing rights. The current fleet size of Weatherly aircraft in service on a world wide basis is in excess of 200 units. The Company opened its new US customer support center in March, 2009 and began supplying spare parts and technical support to existing customers this month.
