EXECUTIVE JET OPERATORS TO GATHER IN BRAZIL
São José dos Campos, Brazil, May 8, 2012 – The fourth edition of the Embraer Executive Operators Conference (EEOC), scheduled for May 8-9 in Brazil, will bring together the Embraer Executive Jets operators within the Latin American region where Embraer has more than 100 aircraft in operation, mainly in Brazil.
“As our executive jet family of operators grows, it is increasingly important to maintain close relationships with them,” said André de Castilho, Customer Support Director for Latin America, Embraer Executive Jets. “The EEOC is just one of many ways we communicate. However, it is also one of the most important since these face-to-face meetings reinforce our commitment to their success as operators. We expect a good attendance from customers, operators, service centers and Embraer teams who will take this opportunity to exchange information and gather ideas for better operations.”
The Latin America operators conference opens a series of seven such conferences scheduled around the world in 2012 including Asia Pacific, Europe, the Middle East and North America.
The first day of the event will be devoted to Phenom jets while the second day will cover Legacy operations. The conference will cover the latest technical, maintenance and flight operations update for the Phenom 100 and Phenom 300 as well as the Legacy 600 and Legacy 650, giving operators the opportunity to exchange experience and ideas through interactive workshops and panel sessions. In addition, the Company is also offering pilots the opportunity to take an introduction to its Flight Operations Engineering Course (FOEC) during the event.
"The conference is an important moment Embraer offers us,” said Antonio da Matta, Phenom 100 Chief Pilot. “It is a great opportunity to meet other operators and share information on our operations and learn more about Embraer updates.”
Embraer has a global network of over 60 owned and authorized service centers dedicated to its executive jets worldwide. This network is complemented by the company’s 24/7 Customer Service Center at its São José dos Campos headquarters.
