Gulfstream Aerospace’s service center in Sorocaba, Brazil, recently performed maintenance on its first Argentina-registered aircraft, some seven months after receiving maintenance authorization approval from Argentina’s Administración Nacional de Aviación Civil. The large-cabin Gulfstream the facility worked on is based at Ministro Pistarini International Airport near Buenos Aires.

“Anytime we can add a maintenance authorization from one of our neighboring countries, it means additional service options for our operators,” said Gulfstream Product Support president Derek Zimmerman. “Most of our South America-based customers are from Brazil, and we have approximately 50 more aircraft based in other countries on the continent, so we will continue to look at enhancing our capabilities.”

Gulfstream Brazil, located at Bertram Luiz Leupolz Airport about 56 miles/90 km from São Paulo, includes a 34,768-sq-ft/3,230-sq-m hangar and a parts warehouse with approximately $10 million in inventory. Last year, Gulfstream Brazil’s 10 maintenance technicians performed work on 92 aircraft, which included off-site maintenance for customers located at airports in Argentina, Chile and Uruguay. Besides Argentina, it also holds maintenance authorization approvals from Brazil, the U.S. and Bermuda.
