TAM aces Textron aircraft sales for second year in a row
TAM Executive Aviation is named as the largest sales representative of Cessna Citation jets and Cessna and Beechcraft turboprops in world for a second consecutive year.
TAM AE president Leonardo Fiuza holds the award presented by members of Textron's leadership.

TAM Aviacao Executiva has just achieved another international recognition; it has been named Textron Aviation's largest authorised sales representative for Cessna Citation jets and Cessna and Beechcraft turboprops in 2023. This is the second consecutive year that the company has achieved this feat. The award was presented by Textron executives during a visit to TAM AE headquarters in São Paulo.

Although it offers complete solutions in executive aviation, TAM AE aircraft sales is one of its main and strongest pillars. Not surprisingly, the company has maintained a partnership with Textron Aviation for more than 40 years, firstly with the representation of Cessna models in Brazil from 1982 and then with Beechcraft products from 2016.

Over the years, the company has invested in its sales force and formed the largest executive aviation commercial team in the country. These investments also translate into support and guarantees for pilots, operators and owners of general aviation aircraft.

Current favourable market conditions combined with a long-term, consistent and sustainable strategic plan have helped the company prosper. Added to this is the largest and most versatile portfolio of executive aircraft in the country, made up of proven, efficient models that fully meet the needs of the Brazilian market supported by the Cessna and Beechcraft brands, both belonging to Textron Aviation, the largest manufacturer of executive aircraft in the world. The result is significant sales that have raised TAM AE to a prominent role in the global executive aviation scenario.

TAM AE president Leonardo Fiuza says: "We always seek to offer our customers a high level of service and the best solutions. With this, we aim to always be ahead of the demands of the booming Brazilian executive aviation market. Given this promising scenario, we can only thank our team of employees, our customers and our relationship, of more than 40 years, with Textron Aviation. We are very proud to receive this award for the second year in a row."

TAM AE is undoubtedly experiencing one of the best moments in its more than 60 year history. Also in October 2023, and again for the second year in a row, it won the award as world's largest Bell helicopter sales representative. Furthermore, at the end of 2023, TAM AE won, for the eighth time, best company in the passenger air transport segment in the 'Biggest & Best in Transport' ranking, organised by Transporte Moderno magazine from Editora OTM.

These company says its achievements are the result of the strategic work it has been carrying out, with investments and improvements in all areas, that directly impact the service provided to the customer.
