Avion is the ultra-premium tequila that has defined a new standard of quality and taste. Tequila Avion was created by Founder, Ken Austin and produced with the Lopez family, a fifth generation agave grower.  Avion begins with the finest handpicked Blue Weber agave found in the highest regions of Jalisco, Mexico.  Avion was voted ‘Best Tasting Unaged White Spirit’ and ‘Best Tasting Tequila’ at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition in 2012. Tequila Avion’s distinct flavors are achieved through a combination of slow roasting Avion Agave at low temperatures for 3 days to protect the natural flavors and a proprietary ultra-slow filtration process that creates an unusually smooth taste profile. Tequila Avion is available in Silver, Reposado, Anejo, Espresso Liqueur and Avion Reserva44. In July 2014, Pernod Ricard, the world’s co-leader in wines and spirits, took a majority equity interest in Tequila Avion and handles brand distribution.

Wheels Up is a revolutionary membership-based private aviation company that significantly reduces the upfront cost to fly privately, while providing unparalleled flexibility, service and safety. Created and led by Kenny Dichter, the Founder of Marquis Jet and innovator of the 25-hour fractional jet card, Wheels Up offers “mission-appropriate” aircraft with guaranteed availability on its “members-only” private fleet of new King Air 350i and Citation Excel/XLS aircraft. Operating with an 8760 culture (24 hours a day, 365 days of the year), the Company offers individual, family and corporate members exceptional world-class service with around the clock support. The cutting-edge Wheels Up mobile app enables members to seamlessly book flights, manage their accounts, and participate in ride share opportunities to maximize the value of the Wheels Up membership experience.
