Drake Has Got New Wings
Drake is soaring to new heights with his own branded Boeing 767.
“No rental, no timeshare, no co-owners,” the Toronto rap star boasted in a video he shared on Instagram on Friday.
The jet is painted with “Air Drake” on the engines and has his signature OVO owl on the fuselage and praying hands on the tail.
Drake’s new wings are part of a deal with Cargojet Inc., based in Hamilton, Ont.
“Supporting home grown businesses has always been a top priority of mine,” Drake said, in a release, “so when an opportunity came up to get involved with a great Canadian company I was honoured to do so.”
According to the release, Drake will serve as an “ambassador” for the company, which will assist him “with his logistical needs and requirements.”

It's not the first time "Air Drake" has been emblazoned on an airplane. The rapper joined Richard Branson at Toronto’s Pearson International Airport in June 2010 to show off a branded Airbus A320 as part of the launch of Virgin America in Canada. The airline suspended flights from Canada less than a year later.
