For the similarly named plane in GTA San Andreas, see Cropduster.
"“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."
Elitas Travel webpage.

The Western Company Duster (also known as the Crop Duster) is a fixed-wing airplane in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.


The Duster, as its name suggests, is an open cockpit tandem biplane intended to spray pesticides over a large area in a small amount of time. The plane resembles a Stearman PT-17 modified for crop dusting, with the vertical stabilizer and cowl of a Stearman 4. It is the successor of the Cropduster from Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

This biplane only spawns in its rusted form, likely because it is considered an old vehicle and has a two-tone paint scheme, as well as its spraying system underside. Although it is actually seen spraying pesticide in single-player in the first trailer, it is currently only available in Grand Theft Auto Online.

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 takeoff, as it takes about 7 seconds.

Although the real-Life PT-17 features a dual seat control system for training, the in-game GTA Online Duster's passenger cannot take rein if the pilot bails out. Spraying pesticide into the face of another player or a pedestrian would not harm them, or attract any attention from the police.

Grand Theft Auto Online

  • Purchasable from Elitás Travel for $275,000.



  • Being a 1930s biplane, the Duster is one of the oldest aircraft in the series, tied with the Nevada.
  • 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 will have a red and white paint job all the time.
  • 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 most likely an oversight, as the plane it is based on, the Stearman PT-17, was manufactured in the 30s-40s.
  • 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.
  • The Duster is referred to as "Cropduster" by Trevor Philips in the mission "Minor Turbulence".
  • Originally, the Duster's wheels would continue to spin even after the plane becomes airborne. This was fixed in an update.
