Why pilots choose AirSprint.

Aircraft Selection ConsiderationsStability and Security: Our Fractional Ownership model is the foundation of our company and provides job security typically unseen in the private and commercial aviation sectors. 

Aircraft Selection ConsiderationsFlexible Schedules: We provide multiple schedule options, from a Preferential Bidding System (PBS) to a rotational style—with different schedule ratios for those who wish to work more or work less.  

Aircraft Selection ConsiderationsOptimal Pilot Numbers: Many private aviation operators staff a minimum number of pilots per aircraft. Our goal is to crew 4.8 pilots per aircraft—this ratio ensures adequate coverage when pilots are on days off, out sick or on vacation. 

Aircraft Selection ConsiderationsExciting Flying: Our approach to flying makes for exciting and unique missions. From Europe and Hawaii to continental North and South America, our flights have a wide area of operation.

Aircraft Selection ConsiderationsTop Flight Support: Where many corporate pilots are left to handle everything independently, we have a stellar Flight Support Team that takes care of the backend work. Our Flight Support Team fulfils EAPIS and customs requirements, catering, transportation, and crew accommodations, so our pilots can concentrate on flying.

Aircraft Selection ConsiderationsCareer Progression: Career progression with us is steady and ongoing. With internal upgrade requirements as low as 3,000 hours, you can find yourself in the Captain's seat much quicker than with the airlines. Our Captains and First Officers are some of the most talented pilots in Canada, with experience that far exceeds most operators.

Aircraft Selection ConsiderationsNew Best-In-Class Jets: We have North America's newest fractional fleet—we operate Cessna Citation CJ2+, Cessna Citation CJ3+, Embraer Legacy 450/500, and Embraer Praetor 500 aircraft. Our fleet provides efficiency and reliability while sporting the latest avionics and safety features.
