Portage Aircraft Specialties provides Canadian aerial application operators a successful 40-year legacy in agricultural aviation and aircraft support services from its aircraft sales and maintenance facilities located in south central Manitoba.

President Dave Frisch grew up on a mixed grain, and livestock farm in the Manitou, MB area and began his ag flying career in 1999. Having flown and helped build a successful aerial application operation and turbine aircraft maintenance shop, Dave has both the technical, practical and business experience to help Air Tractor owners maximize their aircraft investment.

Portage Aircraft Maintenance opened its doors in 2004 to answer the need for a maintenance facility specializing in the growing numbers of turbine Air Tractor aircraft entering Canada. From the 8,400 square foot, state-of-the-art, climate-controlled facility experienced aircraft maintenance engineers provide a wide array of services to ag aviators.
