Gulfstream has added two Brazilian aircraft services companies to its worldwide list of company-authorized warranty facilities.
Líder Aviação and Aero Rio Táxi Aéreo are now authorized by Gulfstream to provide warranty repairs and maintenance services within their regulatory approvals for both large-cabin and midsize Gulfstream aircraft, including the G650ER, G650, G550 and G280. In addition, Líder, which operates in several locations, including São Paulo, is now a Gulfstream-authorized parts dealer for South America and can facilitate parts sales transactions to support both scheduled and unscheduled maintenance events.
“We’re committed to providing our Brazilian operators a range of choices for their aircraft maintenance needs,” said Derek Zimmerman, president, Gulfstream Customer Support. “These additions, further complemented by the new maintenance facilities planned for Palm Beach, Florida, and Savannah, will provide comprehensive and timely support throughout Brazil, especially in the two large cities where most of our operators are located.”
Líder has an operation at São Paulo’s Congonhas Airport, along with facilities in Rio de Janeiro, Belo Horizonte and Brasilia, while Aero Rio is based at Galeão International Airport in Rio de Janeiro. More than half of the approximately 40 Gulfstream aircraft in Brazil are based in São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro and more than a third operate out of Congonhas and Galeão.
About 230 Gulfstream aircraft are based in Latin America.
