First full Legacy 600 renovation for Embraer’s Sorocaba service center


Embraer Executive Jets’ Service Center in Sorocaba, Brazil, has completely renovated a Legacy 600 to customize it for its new South American owner. The jet, originally built in 2006, has been updated with a new interior, livery and systems upgrades.

The updates include new seats, carpets, ceiling material, side panels and a new varnish hue for all the cabinetry. There is also new flooring in the galley, and the divan and curtains have been updated with new fabrics. The service team also overhauled the landing gear and installed ADS-B Out, 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 integrated service and support solutions, from small repairs to fully customized services like this interior renovation.

“Since 2002 in the business aviation market, Embraer has developed aircraft recognized for their robustness, advanced technology, reliability and high utilization capability,” said Everton Vicente de Lima, general manager of the Brazil Service Center.

“Now, customers also find complete solutions for renovation, modification and modernization, in addition to the market-leading customer support.”

Based at the Bertram Luiz Leupolz Airport in Sorocaba, the company’s facility provides FBO services for any manufacturer’s aircraft and support for the Embraer Executive Jets fleet. 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 USA (FAA), Europe (EASA), Chile (DGAC), Argentina (ANAC) and Aruba (DCAA).
