May 2008: Australian entrepreneur Paul Stoddart has sold Australian airline OzJet (OZJ) to Sydney-based HeavyLift Cargo Airlines (HVL), which plans to keep the carrier's passenger operations and help it acquire younger airplanes. Stoddart had a 97.4% stake, says OzJet (OZJ) Chief Operating Officer (COO), David Blake. He said the sale was completed on 2 May. "The new investor wants to expand the business," says Blake. He said the plan is to grow OzJet (OZJ)'s presence in the ad hoc charter business, particularly its work for the Australian Defence Force. The new owner has indicated that OzJet (OZJ) will be getting newer passenger airplanes, but has yet to decide on an airplane type, he adds. There are no immediate plans for OzJet (OZJ) to operate cargo airplanes, says Blake. But the purchase means Sydney-based HeavyLift (HVL), which has been operating dedicated cargo flights from Australia using a foreign air operator's certificate (AOC), now has an Australian (AOC).

OzJet (OZJ) has a fleet of 4 737-200s and has said it wants 737-300s.

Stoddart's withdrawal from OzJet (OZJ) effectively means he now has more time to devote to his main business, European Aviation (EUL), which is a charter operator in the UK that also retrofits and resells airplanes.

October 2016: Avmax has purchased 3 Boeing 737-500 airplanes from European Aviation (EUL) in the UK. The airplanes are currently on lease to AirX Charter, Malta. The 737-500s are the 1st of the type acquired by Avmax and indicates a continued plan to widen its leasing scope beyond its traditional regional market.
