Embraer has begun construction of three new U.S. service centers for executive jets. The Brazilian airframer broke ground on one facility at Bradley International Airport in Windsor Locks, Conn., in late July. It expects to have this center operational by the middle of next year. Last month, work began on its base at Hollywood International Airport in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

Embraer recently broke ground at Bradley International Airport in Windsor Locks, Conn., for its second new executive jet service center in the U.S. The ceremony came three weeks after a similar groundbreaking ceremony was held at Williams Gateway Airport in Mesa, Ariz. The new facility, scheduled for completion in the middle of next year, is dedicated to full-service care for Embraer’s Phenom 100, Phenom 300 and Legacy 600.
To meet increased customer demand, British Columbia-based helicopter shipper Panalpina has added a service center in the Northeast. The company has hired Peter Baldauf, a helicopter load-out specialist, to its Heliship team at Hartford/Bradley Airport in Connecticut.
