Air Tractor


Founded 1958 in Wichita Falls, Texas, Leland Snow became Air Tractor president. Derived from the S2B he had designed and built in the fifties, Snow started design work on a new cropduster. In 1972 he obtained a small business loan, rented a building back in Olney and started to build jigs and tooling for what was to become the Air Tractor AT-300 - a conventional layout crop-duster powered by a Pratt and Whitney R-985-AN1 of 450hp.
