    Case Studies

    In 1983, at the request of the Japanese Government, Yamaha developed its first unmanned helicopter to make the spraying of rice paddy fields safer and more efficient.

    Today, more than 2700 Yamaha unmanned helicopters are in operation in Japan, spraying one third of the rice sold on the domestic market.

    In Australia, Yamaha’s Sky Division helicopters are involved in a diverse range of operations, including weed control, seeding and invasive pest eradication. Its fleet of unmanned helicopters also provide efficient and cost-effective solutions for commercial industries, local councils as well as State and Federal Government departments.
