Morro Vermelho Taxi Aereo (MVTA) in São Paulo, Brazil, has been added to Gulfstream Aerospace’s international product-support network. The Brazil-based company will distribute aircraft parts to Gulfstream operators located in or traveling through South America.

“With more than 80 aircraft based in the region, our presence in South America continues to grow,” said Mark Burns, president of product support for Gulfstream. “This partnership helps us ensure the operators of these aircraft–as well as the operators of Gulfstream aircraft passing through the region–have the parts they need whenever and wherever they need them.”

The facility will maintain a parts inventory and receive additional parts from a centralized storage facility for quick local distribution. MVTA joins five other facilities in the Gulfstream international parts-distribution network, including the Gulfstream London-Luton Service Center in England; the MetroJet maintenance facility in Hong Kong; and the Jet Aviation maintenance facilities in Dubai, Moscow and Singapore.
