Goldman Sachs Business Program Accepts Aventure Aviation President

Aventure Aviation President Talha Faruqi has been accepted into the 2021 Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses program at Babson College, taking place virtually from April through May.

He will join 70 entrepreneurs from around the United States for a program that delivers intensive entrepreneurship training and practical startup advice from Babson's business experts and peers. Established in 1919, Babson College is a private business school in Wellesley, Massachusetts that focuses on entrepreneurship education.

Goldman Sachs created the program in 2009 to help entrepreneurs create jobs and economic opportunity by providing access to education, capital and business support services. Founded in 1869, the Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. is a global financial services firm headquartered in New York City.

"I am truly honored to be accepted. The program will provide tools and opportunities to help advance my leadership skills, guide Aventure's growth, and network with a large pool of highly talented and diverse business owners across America," said Talha Faruqi.

"My hope is that this program will help me create new jobs and economic opportunities in my community and beyond."

Aventure Remembers Aviation Pioneer During Black History Month

Known as the Father of Black Aviation, Charles Alfred Anderson was an American aviator and the chief flight instructor of the famed Tuskegee Airmen.

He was the only African American pilot in America when he received his license in 1932. Since flight schools didn’t accept African Americans, Anderson had to purchase his own aircraft and teach himself to fly. 

At the beginning of WW2, African Americans were not allowed to be military pilots. In 1941 Anderson had the opportunity to fly First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt, who became an advocate for the Tuskegee Airmen, the first Black military pilots. Led by Anderson, the airmen became a great asset during WWII, flying 1,378 combat missions.

"Charles Anderson was a man of great determination, willing to do anything to achieve his goals," said Jeremy Brown, Tuskegee University alumnus and Aventure Aviation warehouse assistant.

Aventure Celebrates the Lunar New Year

Aventure is celebrating the Year of the Ox, the Lunar New Year holiday observed in China and many Asian countries. Each year of the Chinese zodiac calendar is marked by one of twelve different animals, each bringing characteristics that symbolize various personality traits.

In Chinese culture, the Ox is a valued animal. Due to its role in agriculture, positive characteristic attributes include being hardworking and honest.

In previous years Aventure hosted a luncheon of Chinese cuisine at their Atlanta headquarters with staff learning more about Asian cultures from their colleagues of Asian heritage.

While celebrations vary around the world, they will be observed differently this year as the pandemic forces people to stay at home.

Contrails Newsletter Turns 10 Years Old

This issue marks the 10th anniversary of the newsletter of Aventure Aviation. Contrails deputed in February 2011 as a monthly electronic newsletter to help share company news with customers and friends.

The word contrails is short for "condensation trails" (also known as vapour trails), which are line-shaped clouds produced by aircraft engine exhaust or changes in air pressure, typically at aircraft cruising altitudes miles above the Earth's surface

"We have found Contrails to be a great way of starting a conversation with interested parties curious to know more about the happenings at Aventure," said CEO Zaheer Faruqi.

Over the years, Aventure has periodically produced printed versions for live occasions such as trade shows. In April 2018, Aventure introduced Contrails Quarterly, a printed publication covering Aventure news for the quarter.

"We are eager to hear what our subscribers want to read in future issues," said Chelsea Sneed, Aventure's office manager. "Comments can be sent to"

Quote of the monthIf you can walk away from a landing, it's a good landing.
If you use the airplane the next day, it's an outstanding landing."
