  • $\begingroup$ Every crop-duster I've ever seen uses the front-seat space for the payload. I doubt you'd want to sit there. $\endgroup$ Mar 19 at 3:26

    $\begingroup$ Sorry to be flippant, but you've checked back in on your question after two days and rather than offering some very basic additional information to those who asked for clarity, you ask another brief and obvious question. The short answer is that if there is a second set of controls then it is designed to be flown from either seat so the answer would be yes. If not, it wouldn't be possible and the answer would be no. $\endgroup$ Mar 20 at 23:12
