The Abingdon Co. Reveals New Products for 10 Year Anniversary at Airventure
With six out of ten announcements so far revealed, The Abingdon Co. is on a roll for their biggest year yet. Celebrating its 10 Year Anniversary with a monthly statement promoting new products and advances in the company, The Abingdon Co. will be showcasing never-before-seen products at the 2017 EAA Airventure.

The first product is the much-awaited 10 Year Anniversary Timepiece, Amelia, featured in 24K Gold and limited to 100 pieces only. Serial numbered 1-100 on a custom designed 10 Year Anniversary caseback, the Amelia timepiece is the signature watch which helped launch the company into the spotlight as the first aviation watch for women.

The 10 Year Anniversary Amelia will be on display for the first time at EAA Airventure at The Abingdon Co. booth #2097 in Hangar B.

The second announcement featured is about the scholarship deadlines have been confirmed for the company's latest addition to its scholarship program. In addition to the aviation scholarship which the company has offered since 2010, two NEW scholarships for the helicopter and dive industries were announced in March of this year at Heli-Expo in Texas. The deadline to apply for the Helicopter Scholarship is January 31, 2018. The applicant chosen will receive full airfare, accomodations, and registration to Heli Expo 2018 in Las Vegas where they will be introduced to the industry in order to help assist them in finding their own career path in helicopters.
