Brazilian aviation services giant Líder Aviação has announced it is the new “exclusive representative” in Brazil for Canadian business jet manufacturer Bombardier Aerospace.
According to Líder, the Belo Horizonte-based company will be responsible for sales of the OEM’s Learjet, Challenger and Global business jet lines. The partnership is the result of a long relationship between the companies,” said Líder president Eduardo Vaz. Líder was the company that introduced the Learjet in Brazil in 1968.
Líder is also the Brazilian representative of U.S.-based Beechcraft for that company’s line of turboprop and piston aircraft and is working closely with Beechcraft as a partner at the LABACE show.
Beechcraft, which emerged from bankruptcy this past spring, no longer produces a business jet line competing with Bombardier, and the Canadian OEM has no turboprop or piston aircraft that compete with Beechcraft’s products.
