Brazilian outfit Lider Aviacao took on a charter-ready Phenom 300 at the start of this year, and getting the aircraft approved for medevac has paid off. “The aircraft is perfect for operating from north to south Brazil and Latin America, and it is widely accepted in the executive aviation market,” explains marketing manager Daniela Valadares. “It is also approved for aeromedical transport, so at this time we are making several flights with this configuration.”

Líder has a large, diverse fleet that includes turboprop, jet and helicopter aircraft of various models, such as the Phenom 100 and Phenom 300, Hawker 800B, Hawker 800XP/850XP, Premier 1A, HondaJet Elite, Learjet 40, Learjet 31, Learjet 35A, King Air C90 GT, King Air B200 GT, AS 350B2, AW109SP, AW119, Sikorsky S-92A, S-76 C+, S-76 C++, Bell 212 and Airbus H135. All told the fleet includes almost 60 aircraft.

Valadares continues: “The main destinations sought by our customers for executive flights continue to be the cities of south-eastern Brazil. However, due to the pandemic, we have experienced a significant increase in hours flown for aeromedical removal in the north and north-eastern regions of the country. We offer complete executive aviation solutions. From private charter flights, aeromedical transport, transport of organs for transplantation, aircraft management, onshore and offshore helicopter operations, aircraft maintenance, aircraft purchase and sale, airport assistance services, aeronautical insurance sales to pilot training. We provide everything needed to offer maximum comfort, ease and exclusivity, in addition of course to customer security.

“With COVID-19, we have experienced increased demand for repatriation flights and aeromedical removal flights. In addition, we received an authorisation from the Brazilian National Civil Aviation Agency (ANAC) for the transportation of biological loads (samples, lab tests, vaccines, medicines, medical equipment and hospital supplies) in our aircraft as one of the actions to help combat the virus in Brazil.”
