About AirSprint

The Company Behind You

Aviation is Our Passion.

With a driving passion for aviation, we pioneered Fractional Ownership in Canada.

We were the first, and 20 years on, our team continues to deliver a private aviation experience above all others. An experience that helps successful Canadians live even fuller lives.

Now, that experience awaits you. 

AirSprint | 20 Years of Aviation

AirSprint was borne out of a shared ambition between two friends.

Already experienced pilots, Judson Macor and Phil Dewsnap met at the University of Alberta in the 1990s, and soon discovered they both dreamed of starting an aviation company of their own.

Fractional Ownership, allowing more individuals and corporations to access private aircraft, had taken off in the United States, but not so in Canada. People thought it wouldn't work for a variety of reasons: the geography, the regulatory environment, Canadian culture. But Judson and Phil saw that it was more than possible—it was something that could genuinely help Canadians be more productive and get more out of life.

They started with one plane, a Pilatus PC-12. And every day since, the team, the fleet and the number of Canadians getting more out of life with AirSprint has grown. The dream was realized. The model was proven. And now you can enjoy the benefit.

Enjoy the AirSprint experience.
