Club Level at the New SEGRA Stadium to be Named AEVEX Veterans Club

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C., February 21, 2019 –– AEVEX Aerospace, a full-spectrum airborne intelligence solutions company, announced today they have entered into a long-term agreement with the Fayetteville Woodpeckers to name the premium club level of the brand new SEGRA Stadium the AEVEX Veterans Club. AEVEX will serve as an Official Aerospace Partner of the Fayetteville Woodpeckers, the Class A Advanced minor league affiliate of the Houston Astros.

AEVEX’s capabilities span three business units: Intelligence Solutions, Flight Operations, and Engineering & Technology. Leveraging this combination of end-to-end services, they provide agile and customized approaches to the full spectrum of airborne intelligence requirements. Their primary end-user customers are diverse, including the Army, Navy, Air Force, Forest Service, and U.S. Special Operations Command, as well as each of the Geographic Combatant Commands. AEVEX also supports allied foreign defense customers and numerous other commercial aerospace and defense partners. Their operations are global in scale with efforts in North and South America, Africa, Europe, the Pacific Region, and the Middle East.

“AEVEX Aerospace is unbelievably proud to partner with the Woodpeckers and sponsor the AEVEX Veterans Club,” said AEVEX President Rob Ferriol. “Though we are a nationwide company and our employees are deployed around the globe, AEVEX has deep roots with Fort Bragg and Fayetteville. We opened our first downtown office back in 2010, so I’ve been very fortunate to see our company and downtown develop together over that decade. Looking forward, I couldn’t be more excited for AEVEX to be a big part of what the new team and stadium will bring to the area.”

“AEVEX is a unique partner for the Fayetteville Woodpeckers,” said Fayetteville Woodpeckers President Mark Zarthar. “AEVEX operates internationally and have an obvious attachment to Fort Bragg. However, with offices located adjacent to SEGRA Stadium, they have expressed confidence in Fayetteville’s vision for economic development in the city’s historic downtown.”

SEGRA Stadium will open in April of 2019. The stadium will serve as a premier sports and entertainment venue for Fayetteville, NC, Cumberland County, and the surrounding communities of Southeastern North Carolina. The AEVEX Veterans Club will cater to a luxury experience in the premium level of SEGRA Stadium. Ticketholders will enjoy an indoor/outdoor fan experience from the most optimal vantage point in the ballpark.

22-Pushup Challenge Created to Raise Awareness of Veteran Suicide Rates and to Help Reduce the Stigma Around Mental Illness

Solana Beach, CA, January 7, 2019 — AEVEX Aerospace, a full-spectrum airborne intelligence solutions company, will host a unique culture lunch for Flight Operations’ employees on January 7th. The luncheon will feature Marine Corps Veteran William Felty, who is working to raise awareness of mental illness and suicide rates among veterans. Felty started his pushup campaign in fall 2016 when he heard about the 22-Pushup Challenge, a social media campaign inspired by a 2012 study by the Department of Veterans Affairs that found an average of 22 veterans take their lives each day. As part of the luncheon, Felty will lead interested attendees to join him in doing 22 pushups to show support for this cause.

“William’s message is one of hope and inspiration,” said Rebecca Culjat, Vice President of Training, AEVEX Aerospace. “He reminds us all of the power of connection, and the impact we can have in breaking down barriers to mental illness by being a voice for those who suffer in silence.”

Felty has been doing 22 pushups every day for more than two years. “I do them every day as a reminder to be there for my fellow veterans and others in times of need,” said Felty.  I will continue this challenge and invite others to join me in helping to create awareness of this important issue.”

For more information on the 22-Pushup Challenge, go to Conversations Around Veteran Suicide or visit the Facebook Group Reporting for Duty, Battle Buddies West.
