Av8 expands parts unit for AOG support
Adding to the depth of its exchange pool, Av8 MRO has made Hawker and Challenger parts acquisitions and a senior appointment. This is just the beginning, as the company has other models in its sights.
Av8 CEO Yoel Arnoni is building up the new Dallas, Texas AOG unit.

The Av8 Group is expanding its AOG parts unit with the addition of Karen Winterrowd as sales director and a dedicated sales office located in Dallas, Texas.

Winterrowd will help support the sales of Av8 AOG services as well as services from the other units in the group. She has an extensive 20-plus year history in aircraft parts sales and has held various positions in that time, including operations manager for Arnoni Aviation. She will be the second team member dedicated to the sales and support of AOG services, that cover expedited AOG parts services, managed repair services, engineering and repair, inventory acquisition and liquidation as well as OEM and PMA parts sales and distribution.

“Karen is an outstanding addition to our Av8 AOG team,” says CEO Yoel Arnoni. “She had been successful with us in the Arnoni Aviation days, and I was excited to learn that she was interested in coming back into the fold. We look forward to her continued success as part of the Av8 Group.”

The AOG parts unit has acquired extensive parts inventories for Hawker 800A and Challenger 604/605 aircraft. The unit is focused on parts services including expedited AOG parts, managed repair services, engineering and repair, OEM and PMA parts sales and distribution as well as inventory acquisition and liquidation. It continues to actively expand inventories via aircraft purchased for part out and by acquiring flight department inventories whenever possible.

The Hawker 800A inventory has made a number of major parts and components available to Av8 customers, including a large quantity of wheels and consumables. The Hawker parts acquisition also adds depth to their exchange pool by adding additional landing gear and TKS panels in use by the Av8 MRO unit. The Challenger inventory has acted as a similar catalyst for that airframe.

“These two inventories are really just the beginning of our efforts to expand the depth and support that our Av8 AOG parts unit can provide to our customers,” says CEO Yoel Arnoni. “We are actively expanding to include other models of the Hawker and Challenger aircraft as well as several models of Gulfstream.”

The company is an FAA and EASA authorised repair station and FAA PMA authority, combining three distinct subsidiary units; Av8 MRO, Av8 PMA and Av8 AOG.
