​Orlando, FL, October 30, 2012 – Embraer Executive Jets has announced Aurora Jet Partners of Edmonton, Canada, as its newest Authorized Sales Representatives (ASR) and Authorized Service Center (ASC) networks, further expanding Embraer Executive Jets’ presence in Canada.

“The addition of Aurora among our global Authorized Sales Representatives is an important step and further solidifies our position in Canada,” said Bob Knebel, Vice President Sales – North America, Embraer Executive Jets. “It reflects the increased interest and activity we are seeing for our aircraft in Canada. Expanding Aurora’s role to both sales and service is important because it covers our entire seven–aircraft portfolio of executive jets.”

“Aurora is a great addition to our Authorized Service Center network,” said Scott Kalister, Vice President Customer Support and Service – North America. “Aurora was our first customer in Canada for both the Phenom 100 and Phenom 300 and its new roles confirm its importance to Embraer Executive Jets.”

Aurora, based in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, is a leading fractional jet ownership company currently operating two Phenom 100s and one Phenom 300 and is awaiting delivery of its second Phenom 300 later this year.

“We have been operating the entry-level Phenom 100 and the light Phenom 300 which have confirmed our confidence in Embraer Executive Jets as a solid partner in our success,” said Bill McGoey, President, Aurora Jet Partners. “Becoming both an Authorized Sales Representative and Service Center takes our great partnership to a new level and helps us expand.”
