Staff and guests a the Aventure Aviation exhibit at the Zhuhai Airshow.

Aventure Aviation exhibited inside the USA Partnership Pavilion at the China International Aviation & Aerospace Exhibition, held November 6–11 in Zhuhai, China. Also known as Airshow China or Zhuhai Airshow, it is the largest aerospace tradeshow in China, and the only one endorsed by the Chinese central government. The biennial airshow first debuted in 1996, and Aventure staff have attended multiple times since 1998.

The event contained various exhibit halls, product demonstrations, trade talks, technological exchanges, and flying displays. There were over 700 exhibitors from more than 40 countries.

"Our presence allowed us to meet several customers and introduce our company to new clients," said Wei Sun, Aventure′s Account Executive for China. "The fastest growing market for Airbus and Boeing is China, with predictions exceeding 7,500 new aircraft over the next 20 years. We are confident in successfully expanding our business in China."

Aventure Aviation exhibited inside the U.S. International Pavilion of the Marrakech Airshow, held October 2427 at the Royal Moroccan Air Force (RMAF) Military Base in Marrakech, Morocco. The event was attended by over 100 high-ranking military officials from some 40 African countries.

Aventure previously exhibited at the biennial show in 2014 and 2016, and has an ongoing support contract with the RMAF to support their C-130 Hercules and King Air fleet.

"The event has helped in our efforts to secure more contracts in this strategic region," said Amyr Qureshi, Aventure′s Senior Vice President. "The dynamics are shifting as end-user′s dependence on OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers) is likely to decrease as their fleet ages."

Military Division Attends C-130 Events

Aventure Aviation attended two annual C-130 aircraft events last month, the Hercules Operators Conference (HOC) and the C-130 Technical Coordination Group (TCG) International Technical Program Review.

HOC was held October 1518 in Atlanta, Georgia at the Renaissance Waverly Hotel and Conference Center. There were over 80 exhibitors, briefings, social events, and networking opportunities to share various insights among C-130 owners/operators, service centers and suppliers.

"We met with customers and were honored to have many visit our nearby headquarters," said Lyly Cao, Aventure′s Government Sales Manager.

Attended by over 120 exhibitors, the TCG event was held October 2226 in Orlando, Florida at the Caribe Royale Hotel and Convention Center. The conference is an opportunity for foreign military customers, supporting vendors, TCG staff, and U.S. representatives to obtain/exchange technical information, and learn about new and improved C-130 technologies.

"It was a really great experience, and it′s always good to talk business face-to-face," said Maria Julia Mendes, an Aventure sales assistant.

the most westernly point of  England, and start of the cancer bike ride.

Aventure Aviation′s Director of Business Development for Europe, Alan Taylor, and his team completed the Cycling4Cancer event, which took place September 1229 in Southern England. Their efforts raised money and awareness in support of vital cancer research, with proceeds going to the London-based charity Cancer Research UK.

The 1,200 mile ride took 18 days to complete, covering the whole length of the island of Great Britain, from Land′s End, the most westernly point of England, to John o′ Groats, the most northerly point in Scotland.

Alan was motivated to ride by his wife, Jan, a recent cancer survivor. His team met and exceeded their £10,000 goal.

"I am immensely proud of our achievement and would like to again thank Aventure for their support," said Alan. "The part of the ride I loved most was the challenge of the hills, not so easy at my age," he added.
