"“Antique” and “open cockpit” aren't normally the first words on your wishlist when you're shopping for a private jet, but this might change your mind. Produced during the 1930s and 1940s when America still made things, this famous biplane was used primarily for crop dusting chemicals into the food chain. As you swoop through the sky, middle-aged combover fluttering in the wind, you'll almost be able to taste the pesticide blowing back in your face."

The Western Company Duster is a fixed-wing airplane in Grand Theft Auto V.

Description

The Duster, as its name suggests, is a plane intended to spray pesticides over a large area in a small amount of time. However, the only time it is actually seen doing so in singleplayer is in the first trailer, as in the final game it is only available in GTA Online, Unlike the Cropduster, the Duster resembles a Stearman PT-17 modified for crop dusting, with the vertical stabilizer and cowl of a Stearman 4.

Performance

The Duster is the slowest fixed-wing aircraft in the game, but it makes up for this by possessing good handling abilities. It needs a long runway to take off, as it takes about 7 seconds.

Trivia

  • When Michael, Trevor or Franklin fly the Duster, they will wear antique flying goggles and a leather hat.
  • In the first trailer, the Duster can be seen spraying pesticide, similar to the Cropduster in GTA: San Andreas. Despite this function being shown in singleplayer in the first trailer, it is only possible in GTA Online.
    • Also, like the Cropduster in San Andreas, pesticides are ejected from the rear instead of being ejected from the spraying system located under the plane.
  • If the player purchases the Duster, it'll have a red and white paint job.
  • Sometimes, when playing Minor Turbulence, Trevor may answer the Merryweather that his Duster was manufactured in 1989, yet the Elitas Travel page describes it as a plane produced in the 1930s and 40s, this is certainly an oversight, because the Duster is too old to be manufactured in 1989.
  • There is a wreckage of a Duster in the ocean a few miles south of Paleto Bay. It is unknown what caused the crash, but there is a submarine part near it for the Death at Sea side mission.
  • It is the only plane that lands on the McKenzie Field Runway by A.I. pilots in single player.
  • It cannot be found at any runway or airport in GTA Online so there are two methods for obtaining it:
    1. Buy it from ElitasTravel.com for $275,000.
    2. Steal another player's after they have called Pegasus for it.
  • The Duster is called the Cropduster by Trevor Philips in the mission Minor Turbulence, this is because "Duster" is a short for "Cropduster".
  • Sometimes, the Duster's wheels will still spinning even while flying, as soon as is still thrusting. Pressing the brake button, will stop them. It seems that was fixed in a recent update.
