Among the numerous visitors to Aventure’s booth was Governor Nathan Deal of the U.S. state of Georgia, where Aventure is headquartered. Governor Deal was accompanied by a high-level delegation of dignitaries, including Commissioner Chris Carr and Mary Waters, Deputy Commissioner, International Trade of the Georgia Department of Economic Development.

The UAE and the United States have seen bilateral trade increase about 80% in the last ten years. For the past six years, the UAE has been the largest trading partner for the U.S. in the Middle East with $25 billion in bilateral trade and over $19 billion in trade surplus in 2014 alone.
“This was our fifth time exhibiting at the prestigious Dubai Airshow,” commented Amyr Qureshi, Senior Vice President of Aventure Aviation. “Approximately 15% of our revenues are generated from the Middle East, and we are pleased to bring revenues back to Georgia by selling U.S. manufactured aviation products.”

"It was great to participate in the food drive because it gave me the opportunity to help make a difference in my community,” commented Joletta Redd, Aventure’s Data Entry Clerk.
"Our community is fortunate that organizations like the Real Life Center give so much back to those who need it most,” added Christian Jackson, Aventure’s Warehouse Assistant. "To have been a small part of the good work they do was a humbling experience.”
