Nexus Aviation Ventures was founded in 2022 by AMTRA Aero and Nehalem Aviation Holdings.

The Coretz family, under the AMTRA banner, founded and formerly owned Omni Air International, along with several other aviation ventures. In parallel, the Erickson and McCullough families, represented by Nehalem, have established businesses spanning a wide range of aviation operations, products, and services. Together, these partners boast over four decades of experience in aircraft operations, leasing, maintenance, engineering, and modification. Building on their rich aviation heritage and expertise, they established Nexus. The primary goal of Nexus is to acquire top-tier A321 aircraft, convert them to cargo configurations, and lease them to a worldwide clientele. Recognizing the distinct edge the A321 offers as a next-generation narrowbody aircraft, compared to other freighters, Nexus aspires to be the leading lessor of this aircraft type.
