Terry Humphrey of Thrush Aircraft will soon be at a location near you! Come see it, ride it, or best yet - FLY IT. See our Thrush Page for more…
I am Allan Denesowych, Director of Maintenance of Yorkton Aircraft Service. I hold a commercial pilot's license as well as my AME icense.
I have been working with Ag planes for over 38 years, even spent some time crop spraying from 1985-1989 in a Piper Pawnee and an Ag Cat. While fixing and flying I became keenly aware of the lack of support for these ag planes in Canada. I loved to fly but understood as well that to build a customer base I couldn't also be flying Ag. I put my ag helmet on the shelf and started Yorkton Aircraft Service. I enjoy passing along my knowledge and was flatttered when the Canadian Aerial Applicator Association asked me to be a mentor for the mentorship program.
Over the years I learnt a thing or 600 about General Aviation Aircraft too. We would love the opportunity to meet you and your aircraft.
We invite you to visit our shop or give us a call on our toll free number. Introduce yourself to us and let's have a chat about your aircraft.
Can we help you? Are you looking for maintenance, a new parts source, maybe even someone to market your aircraft, we would be happy to help! I work with a great team here at YAS, we are pilots too, so we understand how important your investment is to you. If you check out our story, you will see this was the intended path for Yorkton Aircraft. We are 28 years old, it is now in our DNA.
If we haven't met, I'm Cheryl Denesowych, The Business Manager and lead Thrush / GPS person here at Yorkton Aircraft Service. I've been supporting, servicing and selling to our customers for many years. I'd be happy to supply you with some references on our service including our after hours, 24/7 in-season support. I can help with your parts needs too! And I'd love to talk to you about a new Thrush.
I'm not a pilot but I did ground school twice (yikes!) and I caved on my pilot training about 15 hours in. I have a very strong respect for Pilots!
I've been working side by side with Allan for over 28 years following my convocation from the University of Saskatchewan with my Bachelor of Commerce degree and a brief stint with Employment and Immigration Canada.
We have had so much fun growing and developing along side this business and we love to help others. This is what has given YAS the strong foundation we have today. It's natural that YAS has a family like atmosphere - we'd love to add you to the clan. Email me or call me and let's have a conversation!
Thanks for visiting. We look forward to meeting you.

Our Project guy - Mr. Dependable - Mr.Let's call Leonard In.
We could call him Jack - you know the "do it all and anything" Jack!
Juan is our most recent addition.
He started with us as an after school helper in 2015. He impressed us so much with his hard work ethic that we asked him to consider apprenticing in our trade and he agreed!
He has many names, given his Guatamela background, so we just call him by Juan name.
Parts Control - Sweet Caroline is our company's theme song not only because we like the song.
Every AMO needs a Caroline.
