Embraer last month officially opened a service center dedicated exclusively to executive jets at its headquarters in São José dos Campos. The company is offering a new support and services option especially for Latin American customers. “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, vice president for customer support and services-executive jets. Since opening, the facility has done both 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. The new center has more than 17,000 sq ft of hangar area and another 1,938 sq ft for administrative functions. Embraer offers scheduled and unscheduled maintenance for the Phenom and Legacy series of executive jets as well as remote assistance when an aircraft is unable to fly to the service center.
