The Embraer Executive Jets Service Center in Sorocaba, Brazil, has performed the first complete renovation of a Legacy 600 business jet.
The used aircraft was purchased by a South American customer who chose to customize the whole aircraft with a new interior, systems upgrades and a new paint scheme.
The aircraft, built in 2006, received new seats, carpets, ceiling material, side panels as well as a new varnish hue for all the furniture. The galley received new flooring and the divan and curtains now have new fabrics. The service team also performed an overhaul of the landing gear and the installation of ADS-B Out (Automatic navigation and aircraft tracking data transmission technology), along with a GPS upgrade.
Embraer's service center in Sorocaba - based at Bertram Luiz Leupolz Airport - started the Interior Shop implementation project in 2018 to expand the portfolio of services offered to Embraer Executive Jets’ customers. The Center is part of the TechCare platform, which offers the best integrated service and support solutions, from small repairs to fully customized services like this interior renovation, meeting customers’ highest standards.
"Since 2002 in the business aviation market, Embraer has developed aircraft recognized for their robustness, advanced technology, reliability and high utilization capability," said General Manager, Everton Vicente de Lima. "Now, customers also find complete solutions for renovation, modification and modernization, in addition to the market-leading customer support."
