AeroVanti Club, which is dual-headquartered in Sarasota and Annapolis, Maryland, recently landed another NCAA athletics department. 

Now to complement being the exclusive aviation partner for the University of Central Florida Knights, the Orlando school’s football team, the club announced a similar partnership with the Maryland Athletics, the athletic department for the University of Maryland Terrapins. 

Accompanying the partnership is a newly named seating section at the university’s basketball center Xfinity Center: the AeroVanti Courtside Club. 

“We’re thrilled to support the Maryland Athletics Department, its talented student-athletes and its hard-working coaching, support and administrative staff,” AeroVanti Founder and CEO Patrick Britton-Harr says in a release. “AeroVanti was founded in Annapolis, Maryland, so we’ll always support our hometown teams. And with our operations and maintenance hub in Florida, we had to partner with UCF, as well.”

Since launching less than two years ago, the club has grown 400%, according to the release. It recently received a $100 million funding round, which is expected to add 10-12 planes to its fleet. 

“It’s very exciting for Maryland Sports Properties to bring AeroVanti on as a strategic partner for this season and years to come,” says Jack Krabbe, the general manager of Maryland Sports Properties. “Patrick and his team have trusted us to provide brand exposure to the best fans and alumni in the country and we know we will deliver.”

AeroVanti is built on a tiered membership model and competitive hourly pricing. Membership is offered through individual-, family- and corporate-level tiers. The membership pricing does not include the price of each flight, which varies depending on the destination.
