The National Civil Aviation Authority in Brazil, Agência Nacional de Aviaçâo Civil (ANAC), has granted Jet Aviation Sorocaba the authority to provide line maintenance services on the Gulfstream IV, G500 and G550. The MRO also announced it has recently completed its first large inspection on a Gulfstream G200. According to the company, the technicians worked in close cooperation with a Gulfstream supervisor who supported the team during the inspection.

Norbert Ehrich, senior vice president and general manager of Jet Aviation’s Sorocaba facility, said, “These new Gulfstream approvals significantly increase our service offerings and are testament to our ability to meet the needs of our customers. I’m proud of the team in successfully completing its first large inspection on a G200 to the full satisfaction of the client.”

The 24,000-sq-ft hangar facility, which includes a VIP lounge and private offices, has been remodeled to support the company’s maintenance business and offer hangar lease arrangements for business jets clients. Aircraft management and charter brokerage services are also available at the facility.
