Countryside Aviation was formed by Dean Heimermann in 2004, but he had been a spray pilot long before. He grew up on a dairy farm in Chilton, Wisconsin. After high school he became an aircraft mechanic and licensed pilot. He began flying agricultural aircraft in 1992 and received a Bachelor degree in Aviation Business Management.
In 2004 he decided that he would take his passion of agricultural flying one step further by forming his own operation - where he could provide quality service and equipment that he knew farmers would value. He hired a team of trusted and skilled pilots to form today's Countryside Aviation, investing in new aircraft and leading technology to provide a superior service.
Today he runs Countryside Aviation out of the same farm he grew up on, now his own. With over 20 years of aviation experience, and a team of professionals from pilots to mechanics, Countryside is a respected leader in agricultural aviation.
