Lider Representing Bombardier In Brazil
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.
