AirStart once again awarded Gold Standard status as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies

A culture of adaptability keeps the aviation MRO company on Canada’s Best Managed Companies list for fifth consecutive year.

TORONTO, MARCH 5, 2020: AirStart has landed on Deloitte Canada’s Best Managed Companies list for the fifth straight year, repeating the distinguished Gold Standard status achieved last year:


“Our ongoing success owes much to our entrepreneurial culture. We know how to adapt and can therefore seize opportunities quickly to meet the changing needs of our partners in this fast-moving industry,” — Rob Wills, CEO and Founder, AirStart.


This award caps of another outstanding year for the aviation company, whose innovative Rapid Exchange (RX) rotable parts support model saves commercial airlines, business jet owners and trading partners around the world both time and money.

Anne Vinet, Executive Vice-President, Marketing and Business Development, attributes AirStart’s continuing upward trajectory to the integrity of its relationships:


“Our ability to forge solid, long-term partnerships is our greatest strength. And that comes from a deep sense of commitment to our partners, and a willingness to get it done 24-7-365. Aviation is exciting because it is continuously changing. AirStart is too, as our recent move to serve the business aviation market demonstrates.”
