FAA approves Embraer’s Sorocaba service facility
The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has certified Embraer Executive Jets’ service center in Sorocaba, Brazil, for maintenance of the company’s complete business jet portfolio. The approval followed the recent certification granted by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA).
With certification from these important aviation authorities, in addition to the one already conferred by Brazil’s ANAC agency, the Sorocaba service centre is among a select group of maintenance and repair shops in Latin America supporting Embraer’s business jets registered in Brazil and abroad.
The 216,000-square-foot Embraer facility at Bertram Luiz Leupolz airport in Sorocaba near São Paulo offers a full range of services for the Phenom, Legacy and Lineage business jets families, as well as world-class accommodations and VIP lounges for passengers and crew, hangaring and aircraft ground services for all types of business aircraft. Up to 40 jets can be serviced simultaneously in the facility’s two hangars.
