“We are always pleased to welcome so many of our worldwide customer operators at this key annual event,” said Luiz Hamilton Lima, Vice President, Services & Support – Embraer Commercial Aviation. “The MCW is an open forum for discussing best maintenance practices, and it results in important improvements for operating Embraer’s commercial jets, even more competitively.”

The 11th MCW will close on Friday, September 23, with a tour of Embraer’s plant in São José dos Campos.
Throughout the course of the program, which has at least 80 people from 23 operators registered to attend, emphasis will be given to new troubleshooting tools for enhancing fleet availability; customer experience with the Lean philosophy; Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO); and heavy check best practices at Embraer (embraer.com) and suppliers.
