Thrush Aircraft Testimonials
Gary Kurys, Owner of C-FXOC, 2021
"I love, love, love this plane. My wife Karen is right, I should have done this 10 years ago. I would be happy to talk to anyone about my experience with the plane and my buy experience with Yorkton Aircraft. Just call me!"
Andre, Pilot for C-GMLO, 510P Forestry Pilot
"I am an older pilot and I have flown just about everything in and outside of Ag. I was "delighted" with this aircraft on my first flight in it. That has never happened before in my career and says a great deal about the aircraft! I immediately noticed its stability and pilot friendlness. It was a true joy to fly and I hope to do the 2022 forestry contract in a Thrush."
Frank Drinan, Owner of Keyland Air Services
"From my observation the 710 can go further into the heat of the day than an 8 with a similar engine. The longitudinal door (Bombay style) adds 80 or 90 gallons so there's really no capacity difference as the 802s never go out full anyway, mostly 650 to 720 gals in typical fire conditions. I have another 710 arriving new in October, so YES we love it."
Craig Crossingham, Owner of Central Highlands Aerial Services
"The 710s are faster, they fit in tighter spaces, they fit under powerlines, they are more stable on rough days, more cost effective on Ag work especially when you consider, on average we return better hourly revenues than our 8's, and weighing that up against the buy in price"

START PAC PRO
This light duty air portable/carry-on START PAC® Lithium-Ion is the smallest, lightest (only 14lbs/6.3kg for the unit alone) and the only true 28V micro starting unit on the market. It will provide emergency starting for all piston engines and small to medium turbine engines.
START PAC Li2800QC (31v)
START PAC units will provide a faster and cooler engine start than most ship’s aircraft batteries (the turbine is spooled to more revolutions per second before fuel is injected). Thus, turbine life will be extended because there is less stress on the starter and other engine components. This will preserve the aircraft’s costly batteries and help lower operating costs. Your airborne, on-board battery can then be saved for emergency use only. As a START PAC secures all your engine starts, this unit will ensure that you have no downtime, even in remote locations.

North American Thrush Dealer
In 1989, at the start of Yorkton Aircraft, the Thrush radial aircraft was common in Canada. Al, the mechanic loved the way the aircraft was built. So much so, he included it in the making of the Yorkton Aircraft logo. YAS purchased Thrush parts direct from the factory for a number of years.
Fast forward 23-years, Thrush was manufacturing the turbine version and Al was determined to bring the Thrush back into Canada. He also felt it was time for Canadians to have a Canadian ag air dealer. He was successful in 2012 when Yorkton Aircraft became a Thrush Dealer and Canada's first Ag Air Dealer.
In 2012, there were 7 Turbo Thrushes flying in Canada. Since then, Yorkton Aircraft has imported 25 new Thrushes and with the addition of some used aircraft making their way to Canada. The 2021 numbers will be 45! From 7 to 45 in a span of 8 years is a great momentum for Canada's #ThushNation. Building a Thrush Nation One Plane at a Time.
