Branson's Virgin Galactic Launch a Milestone for Space Tourism

Space tourism was brought closer to reality as Virgin Galactic founder Sir Richard Branson hurled into space aboard his own winged rocket ship "Unity" on July 11.

Branson and five others from his Virgin Galactic space tourism company reached an altitude of 53.5 miles over the New Mexico desert—enough to witness the curvature of the Earth and experience four minutes of weightlessness—and then glided back home to a runway landing.

After more than 16 years of research, engineering and testing, Virgin Galactic hopes to send customers into space by next year.

In 2011 Aventure Aviation hosted Burt Rutan, designer of Virgin Galactic's winged rocket ship, for lunch at the Aventure exhibition at the Dubai Air show. Rutan shared his vision and engineering concepts with the Aventure team.

"We are thrilled that ten years later, the space ship he designed managed to reach space and return safely with passengers," said Osman Faruqi, Aventure's director of military sales.

"We are inspired by Branson's legendary adventurous spirit," added Amyr Qureshi, Aventure's senior vice president. "Our adventurous spirit is to provide customers with nothing less than the best aviation solutions."

Aventure Aviation Football Challenge Winners Announced

Aventure would like to congratulate the winner of its "dual continent football challenge."  Marcus Rowley of Falko Regional Aircraft won his choice of an Apple or Android smart watch.

The competition was open to people in the aviation industry, and participants were asked to predict the winner, runner up, and final score for the UEFA Euro and Copa América tournaments.

"We thank everyone who participated," said Chelsea Griffin, Aventure's office manager. "We love putting together fun competitions, and plan to do more in the future!"

Atlanta to Welcome ACPC Attendees in September

Aventure Aviation's hometown will welcome airline buyers and suppliers at the Air Carriers Purchasing Conference (ACPC), taking place September 11–14 at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis.

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

While 2020 was an extremely unconventional year, the 2021 ACPC planning committee is focused on making attendees feel confident and safe as people emerge from the pandemic and get back to business.

Atlanta is the capital of the U.S. State of Georgia, and the global headquarters of world-class companies such as Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, UPS, and CNN. Aventure's headquarters are in close proximity to Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, the world's busiest.

Located in Peachtree City, Aventure overlooks an 18-hole championship golf course, providing a tranquil setting for staff and visitors. A purpose-built warehouse stores a huge inventory of aviation parts. The facility offers 24/7/365 service, shipping parts to nearly every destination worldwide.

Freighter Conversions Key to Post-Pandemic Consumer Demands

Pandemic lockdowns have shown that communities will survive and adapt, particularly with help from the internet. With people avoiding brick-and-mortar stores, there has been a huge increase in courier and delivery services.

More sellers are offering their products online, giving a rise to companies like Amazon and Alibaba—all while buyers expect to receive their products faster.

In response, companies are using algorithms to predict future orders and position products to nearby warehouses, and there is a growing need for freight to be carried by air, requiring more cargo aircraft.

Amazon started their own airline "Prime" with converted Boeing 767s. This pivot is necessary as older cargo aircraft are being retired, such as the McDonnell Douglas DC8, MD11, Airbus A300, and Boeing 727. Replacements must have ample stock available for passenger to freighter conversion. These include the Boeing 737-800, 757, 767, and Airbus A321. Even the Bombardier CRJ200 is a conversion candidate for short hauls.

Aventure Aviation is supporting future conversion aircraft, and has significant stock for Airbus, Boeing, Bombardier, and a huge inventory for Embraer regional jets. Aventure is looking to buy more end-of-lease, retired, or parked aircraft, to help airlines, MRO facilities, leasing companies, and investors manage their assets and get a healthy return on their investments.
