Embraer has inaugurated new hangars at the Sorocaba Service Center, in the São Paulo countryside, doubling its useful area from 20,000 m² to 40,000 m². The unit, which completed eight years of operation in March 2022, now has four hangars, three of which are dedicated to maintenance, repair and component overhaul (MRO) services and one to support fixed-base operator (FBO) operations.
“There is consistent growth in the executive aviation segment in Brazil and we see great opportunities for the service sector in the coming years, aligned with our growth plans for both the Services and Support business unit and Embraer itself,” said Johann Bordais, President, and CEO of Embraer Services & Support. “This investment reaffirms Embraer’s commitment to serving its customers more comprehensively and with even better support.”
Embraer Sorocaba has a complete portfolio of services for maintenance, interior refurbishments, hangarage, airport services, stopover assistance and aircraft preservation, in addition to approved workshops for various aeronautical components. Sorocaba Service Center also has the capacity to perform aircraft modifications, such as the conversion of Legacy 450 jets into Praetor 500 jets.
