Aventure Aviation will attend MRO Americas, taking place April 18–20 at the Georgia World Congress Center, in Aventure's hometown of Atlanta.

The annual trade show is the world's largest event for the commercial aviation repair, maintenance and overhaul (MRO) industry, bringing together hundreds of exhibitors and thousands of attendees from across the globe.

The keynote speaker will be Delta Air Lines CEO Ed Bastian, who congratulated Aventure in 2021 for winning the prestigious President's "E" Award for export excellence.

Hosted by Aviation Week Network, MRO Americas first took place in 1996. It was last held in Atlanta in 2019.

Aventure will host a post-event VIP reception at Mercedes-Benz Stadium for invited show guests the evening of April 19.

Aventure Aviation will hold an invitation-only VIP reception at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium, held during the MRO Americas trade show. The evening reception will take place April 19 at the stadium's Harrah's Cherokee Club.

"We have seen a significant increase in business over the past year, and we are expecting a large turnout of guests," said Aventure sales director Andrew Crombie. "The reception will let us share our famous Georgia southern hospitality."

"It's a great opportunity to welcome so many of our customers to Atlanta," added Kevin Lang, Aventure's director of strategic accounts. "We must unfortunately restrict attendance by invitation due to venue size, but we encourage those who wish to meet with us at our global headquarters to reach out."

Aventure has partnered with Master of Business Administration (MBA) students from Georgia Tech's Scheller College of Business, to analyze expansion opportunities for US-based distributors of Japanese aviation suppliers and manufacturers.

The Scheller College of Business is the business school at the Georgia Institute of Technology, a public research university in Atlanta, Georgia.

"We are pleased to share our knowledge of the aviation industry and serve as a mentor to the students," said Ron Taylo, sales operations manager.

Aventure is working closely with the students to assist their analysis and research. As part of the project, students spent a week in Japan where they were immersed in Japanese culture.

"Our team has really enjoyed working with Aventure on this project," said Brad Hastings, a participating MBA student. "They are tremendous partners, and we are incredibly grateful for their dedication to our success."

Reflecting on Green Initiatives for Earth Day

In anticipation of Earth Day on April 22, Aventure would like to reflect on how we can all help make a positive impact on the planet. First celebrated in 1970, Earth Day is an annual event to promote the importance of environmental conservation.

Aventure Aviation recognizes its responsibility to help the aviation industry attain sustainability. Aventure has long prioritized eco-friendly practices in their daily operations.

One initiative is the use of on-site electric car chargers at the Aventure's Atlanta headquarters. They have reduced the use of fossil fuels for employees and visitors over the past five years.

The company has also sponsored industry-specific innovative green initiatives like the Solar Impulse 2, the world's first solar-powered aircraft to circumnavigate the Earth.

Aventure also recycles aircraft parts from the retired airplanes it acquires. Removed parts are re-certified by FAA approved shops as once again being airworthy.

"By working together and taking action towards a more sustainable future, we can all make a difference for the health of our planet and the well-being of future generations," said Hamzah Faruqi, Aventure's director of commercial sales.
