Growing up in the spray business, Brennan Jardine worked for his father Bud Jardine and began by conducting ground support duties such as marking fields and loading planes. Later, he began organizing the business by taking on responsibilities such as booking with customers and coordinating planes and pilots and other required duties. He literally has learned the business from the ground up.
He began flying and spraying over 25 years ago when he acquired his private license in Arizona, U.S.A. and then his commercial license in Melfort, SK Canada. Initially, with his dad, they operated as flying farmers and at times as commercial operators. Brennan has also flown for other commercial spraying operations in a number of capacities throughout the prairie provinces of Canada and South America.
From the combination of flying in the local community and with other operations in different locations, Brennan has an invaluable and diverse experience. Throughout the years, he has flown the majority of types of planes in the market, including the 150, 235, 250 and 260 Piper Pawnees; the Piper Brave 400, Ayres Thrush, Cessna Ag Wagon and Ag Truck; the 450 and 600 Grumman Ag Cat; the Weatherly; the 1000 horsepower Drommader, and the Brazilian Ipanema.
In total, Brennan Jardine has accumulated approximately 9,000 hours of flying experience and 8,000 of those hours have been spraying. Brennan Jardine's spraying hours have been throughout Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Alberta and South America. The majority of his spraying experience was conducted off roads instead of airports.
In 2008, he established his own commercial aerial application company based out of White Fox and Nipawin (Northeast Saskatchewan). Brennan Jardine is a commercial pilot and certified to operate commercially Canada wide.
