Father's Day Celebrated by Aventure

Father's Day in the United States is held the third Sunday of June, and celebrates the significant roles fathers make in their children's lives. Aventure Aviation would like to highlight the contributions made by Aventure's fathers.

Aventure was founded in 2001 by two fathers, Zaheer Faruqi and Amyr Qureshi. Zaheer's three sons, Talha, Hamzah, and Osman, worked part-time in the Aventure warehouse during high school and while on college breaks. Over the years, they worked their way up to positions of leadership with the company, and become fathers themselves.

"Being a dad is awesome! My kids put everything I do into perspective," said Ebrahim Zakaria, vice president of sales. "Balancing work and family life is challenging but so rewarding."

Staff accountant Jonathan Craig recently joined the club of fathers at Aventure Aviation.

"My favorite thing is witnessing the changes and milestones every day," Jonathan said. "There are challenges balancing work and caring for a newborn," he added. "Being able to work from home when necessary has helped a lot!"

D-Day 80th Anniversary: Honoring the Contribution of Allied Air Forces

June 6 marked the 80th anniversary of the D-Day landings along the Normandy coast of France in 1944 during World War II, in what would be the largest amphibious invasion in history.

While most are familiar with the Allied soldiers storming the beaches from their naval vessels, Aventure would like to draw attention to the critical role played by Allied air forces.

Months before the landings, the Allies bombed German supply lines, artillery batteries, and supported the French Resistance from the air with ammunition and equipment.

The Allies had around 12,000 aircraft to support the landings of over 133,000 troops. One of the first phases to weaken enemy defenses included heavy bombers and attack aircraft, such as the British Lancaster, Hawker Typhoon, and American B-17.

Hundreds of American C-47 transports flew that day, carrying some 13,000 paratroopers. A modified airliner, the C-47 was rugged and reliable. Supreme Allied Commander General Dwight D. Eisenhower said it was one of the most significant military assets responsible for the Allied victory.

Another important aircraft was the Waco CG-4 Hadrian, a glider used to land thousands of troops behind enemy lines, as well as their artillery and Jeeps.

The contributions of the Allied air forces to the success of D-Day and liberation of Europe can't be understated.
