Aventure Aviation has received the Minority Export Firm of the Year Award by the U.S. Department of Commerce's Minority Business Development Agency (MBDA). This annual award is presented to a minority-owned firm that has achieved outstanding success in domestic and global markets and is the highest national recognition that a U.S. minority-owned firm can receive.

The award was presented during National Minority Enterprise Development Week, which took place virtually September 14–19. MBDA honored Aventure and other category winners in a virtual "How I Did It" interview series that showcased their innovative solutions.

"On behalf of Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, I applaud your accomplishments, dedication, and continuous drive for success," said David J. Byrd, MBDA National Director.

"We are truly honored…our team is the key to our success. We strive to recruit the best of the best, and today over 70% of our staff have diverse backgrounds. Workplace diversity allows us to share unique perspectives, while subscribing to our common values," said Aventure Aviation President Zaheer Faruqi. "Since 95% of the world's consumers are outside the U.S., exporting is necessary for us to increase our market share."

Aventure Aviation and Crucial MRO have partnered together to offer Bombardier CRJ components. The parts inventory was harvested from three dismantled CRJ200 airframes recently acquired by Aventure. This agreement allows Aventure to provide high demand components on an exchange plus cost, flat rate exchange, or sales basis, with 7/24/365 availability.

"Our CRJ200 customers have seen increased passenger activity in certain sectors, indicating signs of economic recovery which leads to more flights," said Melissa Coleman-Grina, Aventure's Senior Director of Sales. "With increased flights and previously parked aircraft returning to service, our customers are demanding faster service and cost saving options."

"Crucial MRO is excited to provide a significant number of ready parts available through our relationship with Aventure," said Sam Rice, VP of Sales and Business Development for Crucial MRO. "Jointly we will market our services and win new business from our friends in the Regional Aircraft Association and from overseas. Customers are assured of getting parts with our premier repair shop's recent dual release tags."

Aventure's Military and Government Business Increasing in Uncertain Times

The global COVID-19 outbreak has seen the cancellation of in-person business meetings, conferences, and trade shows. Despite these challenges, Aventure Aviation remains open to provide full customer support, while following all appropriate safety precautions to continue operations and keep staff safe.

The commercial aviation industry has been deeply affected by the pandemic. Aventure has been able to succeed through these difficult times, in part due to its growing business in the military and government areas. Aventure's team supports customers in the United States and around the world, providing spare parts supply and component repairs for military aircraft, including the C-130, F-15, F-16, F-18, UH-60 and CH-47.

"We have limited the number of employees working from our main facility to minimize contact, while the remainder of our staff is working remotely from their homes," said Ron Taylo, Aventure's Operations Manager of Military Sales.

"Our military team is fully staffed and available by email, phone, or video call," Mr. Taylo continued. "We may not know when 'normal life' will return...but we know one thing for certain, Aventure Aviation will be here to support our customers. We will get through this together."
