Get To Know Canvas
From the moment the Wright Brothers took to the sky, flying meant freedom and independence. Somehow, the industry has taken away much of the joy and flexibility from aircraft ownership—and from the journey itself.
Canvas Aviation was created by aviation experts who recognized that changes in service level needs, the economy, or flight requirements led clients to transition aircraft types or programs about every two-and-a-half years.
We have created a disruptive model that offers ease of transition between charter flights, fractional aircraft ownership and whole aircraft ownership.
