New State Capital Partners | December 23, 2021
New State Capital Partners ("New State") announced the acquisition of AVEX ("AVEX" or "the Company"), a leading provider of sales and maintenance for the Daher TBM turboprop aircraft in North America. New State is acquiring the Company from its founder, Terry Winson, who is retiring. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
Founded in 1985, with operations in California and Colorado, AVEX is the exclusive distributor of new TBM aircraft in the southwestern United States. With more than 1,000 TBM aircraft currently in service, the Company also manages a robust maintenance and aftermarket services business, which provides a one-stop solution and a high level of customer service to TBM owners across the country.
Manufactured in France by Daher since 1990, the TBM is among the fastest single-engine turboprop planes in operation, combining safety, comfort and performance. The TBM provides typical cruising speeds of light jets, with the economical operating costs of a single-engine turboprop.
"AVEX has been my life's work, so selecting the next owner of the business was not a task I took lightly, From our first interaction, New State clearly stood out as the best partner for AVEX. They were absolute professionals, acting with integrity at every step. I am truly excited for them, as well as for our customers and the team at AVEX. I am quite confident of their future success."
"Today marks a wonderful milestone in the growth of AVEX, We at AVEX are all energized by the skill, resources and strategic guidance that New State can add to an already terrific company. AVEX has been preparing for this transition for years, and we could not have picked a better partner in New State."

The ongoing U.S. travel crisis is causing thousands of job cuts as the aviation sector waits for passengers to return to the skies but braces for years of lower demand because of the coronavirus pandemic. U.S. airlines are slashing hundreds of thousands of flights, cutting schedules by 80 percent or more through at least June and parking thousands of jets as demand for tickets has plunged by about 95 percent. Airlines are requiring facial coverings and implementing new cleaning procedures to try to convince passengers it is safe to fly again, but also fear the weakened economy may further drag down demand.
Late Friday, Spirit AeroSystems said that in response to lower production rates from Boeing Co and Airbus SE it would layoff 1,450 workers in Kansas.
