Initially established as a family-run flight training organisation in 1965, the passion and desire for continual improvement inherent in the business paved the way for what would become a formidable player within the South African aviation sector. Over the years the group has grown organically, by responding to needs that are linked to its current operations, and today, more than fifty years later, its divisions include Avex Air Transport, Avex Information Products, Avex Professsional Tools, Avex Air Technical and Avex Corrosion & Tools.

The foundation for the pioneering brand, Avex, was laid in the early 1960’s with the establishment of a flight training organisation. The next two decades saw the organisation diversify into flight charter services, crop-spraying, aerial surveying, aircraft sales and maintenance. At one stage the fleet consisted of more than sixty aircraft, supporting these endeavours.

In the 1980’s Avex Information Products was formed and Avex began to distribute information and technical standards pertaining to various industries. Today the group represents and distributes publications and open source intelligence material for a variety of global leaders in the aviation, defense and intelligence sectors, as well as editing and publishing its own industry leading pilot study notes. Leading brands distributed by Avex include Jeppesen (a Boeing Company), IHS Global/Jane’s Information, Aircraft Technical Publishers, International Civil Aviation Organisation, and NavBlue (an Airbus Company).

The 1990s saw the founding of Avex Professional Tools, which would soon become a leading distributor and original equipment manufacturer of products sold and distributed to the Aerospace, Motor Manufacturing, Industrial and Mining sectors. Leading brands, now synonymous with these sectors, include the Avex Professional Tool range, USATCO (US Air Tool Co), Apex, Cromwell, Gear Wrench, Corrosion Block and ACF-50.

Another decade passes and in the 2000’s Avex Air Transport and Avex Air Technical  are established. Avex Air Transport, a bespoke charter services company, offers comprehensive and customised solutions to a market that requires the skills and expertise to manage, operate and crew aircraft that are chartered to fly across the African continent. An extensive fleet ranges from thirty two passenger jet airliners to six seat executive turboprop aircraft. The division also manages aircraft on behalf of companies and private individuals.

Avex Air Technical (Pty) Ltd provides the highest standards in technical solutions and aircraft maintenance to ensure the safety of all flight operations. These services have proven to be increasingly popular and appeal to a wide range of international blue-chip clients, many of whom are global leaders in their fields.

In 2017, the group formed Avex Corrosion & Tools Solutions, a division specialising in the prevention and control of corrosion in the aviation and all general industries. The division distributes the internationally renowned, market-leading, anti-corrosion products Corrosion Block and ACF-50, manufactured by Lear Chemical Research. 

In 2015 the Avex Group celebrated half a century of excellence. Throughout its first fifty years of operation, the group’s mission “to make a sustainable profit”, has served it well. Its vision, “to let our  heritage be of service to you”, will continue to do so for the decades to come.
