In addition the the ‘Air Drake’ name, the jet sports the owl symbol from Drake’s company, October’s Very Own (OVO) and praying hands on the tail of the plane.

Cargojet’s President and CEO Ajay Virmini – who Drake credited as the guy that “made it happen” – said they are excited to partner with Drake and have him as an ambassador.
“We have had a lengthy relationship with Drake and this partnership has grown organically between both parties. Cargojet and Drake are both great Canadian successes, we are thrilled to be partnering together,” Virmini said.
The jet is the latest in a line of coveted vehicles Drake owns. Known not to spare any expense, the ‘God’s Plan’ rapper also owns a LaFerrari and an SLR McLaren, according to Simple Flying.
