Gulfstream adds warranty repair stations in Brazil
There are around 230 Gulfstream jets in Latin America, and these now have a greater choice of local approved repair stations. Líder and Aero Rio Táxi Aéreo have stepped up to the plate in Brazil.

Gulfstream Aerospace has added two Brazilian aircraft services companies to its worldwide list of company-authorised warranty facilities.

Líder Aviação and Aero Rio Táxi Aéreo are now authorised by Gulfstream to provide warranty repairs and maintenance services within their regulatory approvals for both large-cabin and midsize Gulfstream aircraft, including the Gulfstream G650ER, Gulfstream G650, Gulfstream G550 and Gulfstream G280.

In addition, Líder, which operates in several locations, including São Paulo, is now a Gulfstream-authorised parts dealer for South America and can facilitate parts sales transactions to support both scheduled and unscheduled maintenance events.

“We're committed to providing our Brazilian operators a range of choices for their aircraft maintenance needs,” said Derek Zimmerman, president, Gulfstream Customer Support. “These additions, further complemented by the new maintenance facilities planned for Palm Beach, Florida, and Savannah, will provide comprehensive and timely support throughout Brazil, especially in the two large cities where most of our operators are located.”

Líder has an operation at São Paulo's Congonhas Airport, along with facilities in Rio de Janeiro, Belo Horizonte and Brasilia, while Aero Rio is based at Galeão International Airport in Rio de Janeiro. More than half of the approximately 40 Gulfstream aircraft in Brazil are based in São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro and more than a third operate out of Congonhas and Galeão.

Another maintenance option for Gulfstream operators in Latin America is the company's service center at Florida's Palm Beach International Airport. In the first quarter of 2020, Gulfstream Palm Beach is scheduled to begin operations at a new state-of-the-art, nearly 115,000 sqft/10,684 sqm facility.

Operators may also opt to visit Savannah, where Gulfstream is opening a 202,000 sqft/18,766 sqm service center expansion at Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport in September and will soon have more than 1 million sqft/92,903 sqm of dedicated customer-support hangar space, offices and back shops.

Approximately 230 Gulfstream aircraft are based in Latin America.
