Through a partnership buyout, Keith Gay is now the full owner of Navigator Development Group Inc. A partnership settlement granting him full ownership of the company became final on June 15th.

This transaction positions Navigator to enter an exciting new chapter while continuing to provide expertise and innovative solutions to government and industry programs. Under the new private ownership, Navigator’s focus remains delivering a best-in-class client experience. Streamlined decision-making and significantly reduced overhead expenses are positive results of the change, making Navigator even more competitive.

"I am very excited with the final outcome of the settlement and look forward to continuing to move the company forward, “ Gay said. “We are focused on strategic direction, growth targets and organizational efficiency as we go forward.”

Navigator is headquartered in Enterprise, Ala., and maintains government and commercial contracts in a number of locations, including Fort Rucker, Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville and Eglin Air Force Base in Florida.

Navigator Development Group Inc. was proud to be a Platinum sponsor at the 21st Annual Army Aviation Museum Golf Classic fundraiser at Silver Wings Golf Course.

According to museum officials, funds raised through corporate and hole sponsorship's will allow the restoration of aircraft 446 to the “Huey Hog” configuration. It will join the line-up of the B and C model gunships, helping to complete the entire evolutionary development.

Founded in 1956, the U.S. Army Aviation Museum maintains a collection of more than 160 military aircraft, including one of the largest collections of military helicopters in the world. According to the museum’s Web site, approximately 50 restored, historic and one-of-a-kind aircraft, are displayed inside the Museum's 70,000 square feet of exhibit space and outside on the grounds.

“The collection includes many significant examples of early research efforts and developments in rotary wing technology and the evolution of the helicopter. Our public galleries represent the Army's involvement in military aviation from the beginning days with the Wright brothers and the early combat aircraft of World War I, up to the highly technological machines such as the AH-64 Apache and the UH-60 Blackhawk flown by Army Aviators today.

The Museum also tells the human side of Army Aviation and features memorabilia and photo essays that capture the human spirit of our proud heritage.”
