Congrats on the mass expansion for Fast Air. Great to see in a time of crisis that some sectors are doing well.

Looks pretty sweet! I know people who fly the Challenger 605 and say its an amazing jet to fly. Hopefully in a year or so they got some job postings.

I knew they were getting cramped for hangar space in Winnipeg, but this seems to be an over reaction :-D

Impressive though, wish them all the best!

Are they selling shares in Winnipeg and Abbotsford on the same machine? I believe their Hondajet is based in Winnipeg but advertised in Abbotsford.

As an AvCanada discussion grows longer:
-the probability of 'entitlement' being mentioned, approaches 1
-one will be accused of using bad airmanship

Unless they have bought another one, the Honda Jet is managed. haha, unless the fractional is now with that owner.

You guys do realize that it's the new hangar in Abbotsford being offered for fractional ownership, not the airplanes.

I did not. Interesting.

Little curious why a Winnipeg company would buy a hangar in Abbotsford though. It would make sense in a fractional airplane owner plan, but if it's just the hangar, I don't really get it.

But hey, good for them if that's what they want to do!

If you look at the new website it clearly states hondajet, king air, citation, and challenger. What comes with the aircraft is the hanger space.

You mean the website that I quoted? Yeah, I had a look.

Have another look at that website and apply some logic.

Free hangar space for an aircraft owner? Hell of a deal. I'll take one of each, thank you!

Hi folks - thanks for the comments about Fast Air in Abbotsford. Its helpful to read your comments, obviously we did not do a very good job clarifying the details of our project! To be clear we plan to build an executive aircraft facility there and parties can purchase a fraction of that facility. We are not selling fractions on an aircraft - others do that well. The aircraft types mentioned are to illustrate what size fraction of the hangar a buyer would need to purchase if they owned the given aircraft. Comparing annual leases to ownership means that a fractional owner would own an asset and not just pay rent. I hope that helps a bit - let me know if we can clarify it more. Also, we do plan to base an aircraft there for charter purposes. - Dan
