Bombardier Commercial Aircraft announced today that the National Civil Aviation Agency of Brazil (Anac) has awarded type certification approval to Bombardier's 86-seat Q400 aircraft for operation in the region.
The Type Certificate, signifying the local airworthiness of the largest commercial turboprop in-service worldwide, was presented to Bombardier in a ceremony held at Anac's office in São José dos Campos, Brazil.
In July 2015, Canada and Brazil signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) on civil aviation to promote and expand cooperation to the mutual benefit of both countries. This MOU will help bring together key Canadian and Brazilian public and private stakeholders to discuss collaboration and cooperation in areas such as airport development, air navigation, and safety.
Bombardier Commercial Aircraft has a Regional Sales and Marketing Office (RSMO) and parts services depot in São Paulo, supported by a dedicated team of local and international experts.
Bombardier's current 20-year commercial aviation market forecast projects deliveries of 1,150 units in the 60- to 150-seat category to Latin America and the Caribbean until 2034.
