Aventure Aviation will participate in a webinar hosted by the U.S. Small Business Administration's (SBA) office of International Trade taking place on March 16. Titled "Keys to Global Market Success," the webinar will discuss the impact of the Small Business, Development Center (SBDC) and how they have aided Aventure and others to become successful exporters.

Aventure will discuss its approach to exporting internationally, and join other U.S. companies in providing insights on how to effectively tap the SBDCs and their International Trade Centers to sell overseas. Strategies for launching or expanding global sales will also be addressed.

The webinar will also include briefings from SBDC and SBA international trade specialists on resources available for businesses to support their global market success, including grant programs to support the costs of expanding international sales.

Remembering "Georgia's First Lady in Flight” During Women's History Month

Aventure Aviation is celebrating Women's History Month by calling attention to Hazel Jane Raines, a pioneer in women's aviation and a native of the U.S. State of Georgia. She has been inducted into the Georgia Women of Achievement, and the Georgia Aviation Hall of Fame as "Georgia's First Lady in Flight."

Raines was born on April 21, 1916 in Waynesboro, about 150 miles East of Atlanta. She became the first woman in Georgia to earn a pilot's license in 1938, and was one of the few women instructors for the U.S. Civilian Pilot Training Program.

During World War II, she was part of the first group of American women to fly military aircraft, doing so in a war zone for the civilian British Air Transport Auxiliary.

This past November, UK-based aircraft engine manufacturer Rolls-Royce opened a 62,000-square-foot facility support center in Savannah, Georgia named after this Georgia-born pioneer in women's aviation.

"It's exciting and empowering to see the new Rolls-Royce center named after Hazel Jane Raines, a fellow Georgian and a woman pioneer in aviation," said Rachel Inestroza, Aventure Aviation Government Sales Representative. "It's important to look back and celebrate the achievements of the women who not only paved the way for other women, but also for society as a whole."

Aventure Aviation is looking forward to the return of the Air Carriers Purchasing Conference (ACPC) to the company's hometown of Atlanta, Georgia. The conference is scheduled for September 11–14 at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis. Held annually, the show last came to Atlanta in 2016.

Founded in 1956, ACPC has become one of the most influential aircraft conferences in the world, with numerous networking opportunities. This year's conference coincides with the 20th anniversary of Aventure Aviation.

"The conference is a great opportunity for us to meet with airline representatives from all over the world, all in one place," said Aventure Aviation Senior Vice President Amyr Qureshi.

The ACPC planning committee is closely watching directives from the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta, and will adapt their plans based on prevention recommendations. They are also working with the Atlanta Marriott Marquis, so they can adapt as needed for the safety of all show attendees and staff.
