Embraer has opened a service center dedicated exclusively to its executive
jets at its headquarters in São José dos Campos. “As promised at the last Labace, we have met our goal of delivering this new service center dedicated to executive aviation to our customers,” said Edson Carlos Mallaco, Embraer vice president for customer support and services-executive jets. Since the facility opened late
last year the staff has performed light (routine and six-month check) and heavy (48-month overhaul) maintenance on the Legacy 600 as well as several services on the Phenom 100.

Located on the São José dos Campos Airport, the new center has 17,438 sq ft
of hangar area and an additional 1,938 sq ft for administrative functions. At this facility, Embraer offers scheduled and unscheduled maintenance for the Phenom and Legacy series of executive jets, as well as remote assistance.
