Aventure Gears up for C-130 Events

Aventure Aviation will attend the annual Hercules Orion Conference (HOC), taking place October 17–20 in Aventure's hometown of Atlanta, Georgia. Aventure will also exhibit at booth #605 at the C-130 Technical Coordination Group (TCG) World Wide Review, taking place October 24–28 in Orlando, Florida.

The C-130 Hercules is a four-engine turboprop military transport aircraft produced by Lockheed Martin, just 20 miles from Aventure's Atlanta headquarters.

"We look forward to reconnecting with customers after a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic," said Ron Taylo, Aventure's operations manager for military sales. "These events let us meet with end-users and maintenance centers, who can benefit from cost savings and faster repair times."

The C-130 holds the record as the largest and heaviest aircraft to ever land on an aircraft carrier, which it did on the USS Forrestal on October 30, 1963.

This year, Aventure honors the 75th anniversary of the U.S. Air Force. Founded September 18, 1947, the U.S. Air Force heritage goes back nearly four decades prior. They are the world's largest operator of the C-130, with over 350 in its fleet.

Aventure Aviation will attend MRO Europe on October 18–20 at ExCeL London, a month after attending MRO Asia-Pacific in Singapore. Both maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) events are organized by Aviation Week Network.

Mike Kitchener, senior director for EMEA, and Cüneyt Yanar, sales representative, will represent Aventure in London. Singapore was attended by Saurabh Tripath, regional director for Asia.

MRO Europe is the largest event of its kind on the continent, where airlines, MROs, OEMs, lessors, suppliers and industry experts meet to explore and define the aviation maintenance industry. It's a well-known venue for people to learn, connect, and do business in the commercial aviation aftermarket.

Mike and Cüneyt will meet with airline representatives to discuss their parts requirements. Aventure is in the process of dismantling and harvesting parts from several retired aircraft in Europe, adding to Aventure's parts inventory on the continent.

"We are looking to partner with MRO shops to store some of our Airbus and Boeing inventory," said Mike. "They can then offer their customers these parts for exchange or outright sale."

The 25th Annual Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festival took place September 10 at Lake Lanier, a popular weekend destination 50 miles north of Atlanta. The all-day festival is regarded as one of the premier cultural, diversity events in the Atlanta area.

The festival included 57 boating teams and approximately 1,200 participants. Thousands cheered on their favorite teams, viewed the opening ceremonies, and indulged in delicious cuisine from Hong Kong and around the world.

Aventure Aviation joined the Islamic Speakers Bureau (ISB) of Atlanta to sponsor a boating team, which included Aventure's president Talha Faruqi.

"This is Aventure's third time participating in this amazing event," said Talha. "It feels great to return to the lake, since the last event took place in 2019 due to the pandemic."

The dragon boat tradition dates back 2,000 years to its origins in China. The modern sporting event has grown in popularity since Hong Kong introduced the first international races in 1976.

The festival was sponsored by over a dozen companies, including Delta Airlines as the highest-level sponsor.
