Just before the new year, AeroVanti Club, a private aviation company, announced a big win: a partnership with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The company the signed the team as its exclusive private aviation partner and the is now the team’s official airline. Through the partnership, the Buccaneers Champions Lounges will be rebranded to The AeroVanti Lounges. 

“The Tampa Bay Buccaneers organization is one of the most well-respected and recognizable brands in the country,” AeroVanti Founder and CEO Patrick Britton-Harr says in a news release. “It’s evident they are committed to the success of everyone in their organization, which extends to their partners, as well. It’s an honor that they’ve entrusted us to be the official private aviation partner of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.”

Additionally, the partnership highlights both organization’s duty to honor active-duty military and veterans with an annual “salute to service” surprise military homecoming. The surprise will take place at a Buccaneers home game.

“We are excited to welcome AeroVanti as our exclusive private aviation partner,” Buccaneers Owner/Co-Chairman Bryan Glazer says. “AeroVanti has distinguished itself by redefining the private aviation membership industry through an innovative approach that has lowered costs and increased access to private travel. We look forward to working with them to facilitate the annual surprise military family reunion as well as finding additional ways to grow this partnership over the coming years.”

AeroVanti’s growth in the past two years since launch has been exponential. After securing a $100 million funding round, which was expected to add 10-12 planes to its fleet, the organization became the exclusive private aviation provider for the University of Maryland Athletics and University of Central Florida Knights. AeroVanti is dual-headquartered in Sarasota and Annapolis, Maryland. Britton-Harr was named a Business Observer 40 Under 40 winner in 2022.
