BLR Selects Premium Jet As Winglet Dealer For Brazil

 - August 16, 2013, 1:45 AM

BLR Aerospace has appointed Premium Jet as Brazilian dealer for its winglet modifications for the Beechcraft King Air family. The Part 145-approved repair station, based at Afonso Pena International Airport in Curitiba, is approved to sell and install winglets and LED lights for the King Air 90, 200 and 300 series twin turboprops. The performance-enhancing modification has already been approved by Brazil’s ANAC aviation authority.

The BLR winglets are already standard equipment on the new King Air C90GTx and 250 models. More than 500 aircraft have been retrofitted with the drag-reducing equipment, which can deliver overall fuel savings of between 3 and 5 percent.

“Premium Jet is an important presence in this rapidly expanding market,” said Dave Marone, BLR vice president of sales and marketing. “It has a demonstrated commitment to excellence that has earned it a stellar reputation in Brazil and beyond, and we welcome it to the BLR dealership network.”
