First complete renovation of Legacy 600 performed by Embraer Service Center in Sorocaba. 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.

This Legacy 600, built in 2006, has 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.

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. The Sorocaba Service 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. Now, customers also find complete solutions for renovation, modification and modernization, in addition to the market-leading customer support," said Everton Vicente de Lima, General Manager of the Brazil Service Center.

Based at the Bertram Luiz Leupolz Airport in Sorocaba, the company's facility provides airport services (FBO) for any manufacturer's aircraft and support for the Embraer Executive Jets fleet, enhancing customers’ ownership experience. In addition to being certified by the National Civil Aviation Agency (ANAC) of Brazil, the service center is also certified by the aeronautical authorities of the United States (FAA), Europe (EASA), Chile (DGAC), Argentina (ANAC), and Aruba (DCAA).
