Thrush Aircraft Establishes $35,000 Bonus Incentive On New Aircraft Purchased Before January 31, 2020

(Albany, Georgia)  Thrush Aircraft has announced the return of its popular “Thrush Bucks” program, which rewards the purchaser of every new Thrush with $35,000 that can be spent on parts, options or training programs at the company. The Thrush Bucks program was first unveiled at the 2014 NAAA Convention and proved an immediate success. So much so that customers continued to ask about it years after it initially concluded.

“We understand buyers have choice – not only in the aircraft they choose, but in the timing of their purchase” said Eric Rojek, vice president of Thrush Aircraft. “And to help make that decision a little easier, and hopefully a little faster, we decided to re-instate Thrush Bucks for a limited time.”

The Thrush Bucks incentive program will be in place between now and January 31, 2020. To qualify, a customer need only place an order for a new Thrush, along with a standard deposit. In return, Thrush will award the customer $35,000 in Thrush Bucks, which can be spend on parts, options or any one of the company’s training programs for their new aircraft.

“We wanted to be sure and have this program in place prior to the new spray seasons – both in the U.S. and around the world – to enable buyers to obtain a build slot that would ensure their new aircraft was ready to go right to work” said Mr. Rojek. “It truly represents a win-win for both our customers and for our company – and, most important, it puts more new Thrush aircraft in air and working hard in a short amount of time.”

“$35,000 is a significant amount of money that will hopefully turn the head of just about any operator” Mr. Rojek continued. “It’s our way of putting some additional proof and real strength behind our message that that Thrush is back – and back stronger than ever.”

For more information on the Thrush Bucks program, or to place an order for a new Thrush, customers are invited to call Eric Rojek at (229) 789-0437.

Aircraft Thrush Aircraft Produces


The most dramatic innovation in agricultural aviation since the turbine engine could very well be the Thrush 510G. We’ve teamed exclusively with GE to produce this new-generation aircraft powered by the GE H80 turbine engine. The H80 provides increased temperature margins to enhance hot-day takeoff performance and high-altitude cruise speeds. This takes the 510G model to new levels of performance with a power output of 800 SHP above 100º F, increased SHP, lighter airframe, not to mention a low acquisition cost. And, like all Thrush aircraft, the 510G delivers plenty of thrust for full payload performance without sacrificing one bit of its amazingly agile handling.

Year after year, the Thrush 510P sets the standard for low maintenance, great handling, and the highest performance in its class. That’s not surprising since the Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6-A powered 510P has continually evolved to take advantage of the latest technologies available. From MVP engine monitoring to advanced wire strike protection, the 510P is designed and built to work as hard as you do—and, like every Thrush, deliver the level of productivity, security and value you’ve come to expect from the most innovative aircraft manufacturer in the business.

Imagine an aircraft that has set the ag industry standard for tough dependability and you’ve got the Thrush 550P. It offers you a 29,000-hour wing spar life and a 550-gallon clear-view hopper. No wonder this aircraft is renowned for its solidly rugged construction and revered for its simplified systems and worry-free maintenance. Now add the fact that its wide-stance spring landing gear is capable of absorbing 8,800 pounds on short, rough strips and its optional spring steel landing gear can be added to increase weight for takeoffs and landings, and you can pretty much check off whatever’s on your “to-do” list.

The new Thrush 710P is one of the world’s most powerful ag planes featuring one of the best swath and spray patterns available today. Plus, it boasts incredibly stable flight characteristics with performance to match. The 710P is one of those airplanes that descriptions do not do justice—you have to fly one for yourself to see if they’re really as good as everyone says. And when you push the throttle, you’ll feel the power and control you won’t find in any other airplane. Of course, the fact that it’s the crop spraying airplane of choice for negotiating rough strips, small fields, and obstacles should make you feel pretty darn good about the 710P, too.
