Embraer’s Executive Jets Service Center in Sorocaba, Brazil, has performed the first complete renovation of a Legacy 600 business jet.
The used Legacy 600 was purchased by a South American customer who chose to customise the whole aircraft with a new interior, systems upgrades and a new paint scheme.
The Center installed 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.
The company’s service center in Sorocaba started the interior shop implementation project in 2018 to expand the portfolio of services offered to Embraer Executive Jets’ customers.
“Since 2002 in the business aviation market, Embraer has developed aircraft recognised for their robustness, advanced technology, reliability and high utilisation capability. Now, customers also find complete solutions for renovation, modification and modernisation, in addition to the market-leading customer support,” said Everton Vicente de Lima, general manager of the Brazil Service Center.
