    Hey, i was printing on my Air Print for the app im developing, and the printer can handle only one job at a time.

    When i try to print consecutively, with another iPad it says the printer is busy.

    Is it my printer? or is that how the Air Print is designed?

    I think the latter. Or maybe also the limitation of your printer.
    AirPrint is not a print spooler. Just a driver-less printing solution. Ie a protocol to hand print job to the printer, without running printer-specific driver locally. The rest is up to the printer.
