Our company was established in 1997 as primarily a dry-land aerial spraying operation, based at Meandarra in SE QLD and traded for many years as Meandarra Aerial. In 2007, the company expanded into a large cotton and dry-land aerial spraying operation at Mungindi in NSW and commenced trading there as Mungindi Aerial. In 2016, further expansion occurred into an established aerial application operation at St George, QLD.
The three entities are now collectively known as Precision Aerial and individually trade as Precision Aerial Meandarra, Precision Aerial Mungindi and Precision Aerial St George.
