Yoel Arnoni and the principals of the Av8 group of companies (Av8 MRO & Av8 PMA), announced the launch of Av8 AOG and have named Chris Lesniak as Director of Sales. Av8 AOG will focus exclusively on certified parts and PMA parts sales to end users as well as other distributors and repair stations.

Chris Lesniak was named as Director of Sales for Av8 AOG and will be responsible for sales and management of the multiple market channels the Av8 Group of companies has developed. A parts industry veteran, Chris has held various sales and management positions at companies including Arnoni Aviation/APPH, Avant Aerospace, RTL Group and Baker Aviation. In his most recent position, Chris worked as Director of Sales and Marketing at RBR Maintenance where he was responsible for managing the maintenance sales staff, and outside parts sales.

“We are pleased to be working with Chris once again. As a proven parts professional, he shares the same drive and integrity as we do at all of the Av8 companies,” said Yoel Arnoni, Principal, Av8 MRO. “His proven track record in parts sales and customer relationships, combined with his extensive parts knowledge, will translate into growth and success for our Av8 AOG concept,” Arnoni continued.

The launch is significant because the group has developed extensive resources with Av8 MRO’s focus on landing gear overhaul and repair and Av8 PMA’s specialization in the design, engineering and manufacture of PMA parts, components and accessories.

Located in Houston Texas, Av8 AOG will be responsible for the acquisition and sales of parts inventoried or used by Av8 MRO in the overhaul and repair of landing gear and components as well as parts manufactured by Av8 PMA under their FAA PMA Authority. Additionally, the company will broker parts, and focus on the distribution of parts when and where their customers need them. The company also locates and procures surplus inventories and parts out aircraft in order to further solidify themselves as a true parts resource that can offer more solutions than traditional companies.
