The Brazilian Civil Aviation Agency (Agência Nacional de Aviação Civil–ANAC) has certified a new Embraer U.S. distribution center operated by UPS Supply Chain Solutions in Louisville, Ky. The certification is recognized by the FAA.

The distribution center, which supports the Embraer executive jet fleet in North America and the Caribbean, maintains an inventory of repairable, expendable and structural parts for Phenoms at the Louisville Worldport, UPS’s largest air cargo hub.
According to the company, to ensure availability where needed, Embraer will also stock critical parts throughout the U.S. at its authorized service centers, including the company-owned distribution center in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

Orders placed up to midnight Eastern Standard Time can be delivered by the next morning to customers virtually anywhere at the thousands of North American destinations served by UPS. Additionally, the certification of this site enables it to receive and generate airworthiness tags for parts used on Embraer products, saving customers time and expense.
