Seattle, Wash. (June 30, 2008) - Raisbeck Engineering recently signed Líder Aviação, headquartered in Belo Horizonte Brazil, as a new Raisbeck Authorized Installation Center to support Raisbeck Learjet Performance System sales. Líder will be responsible for promoting, selling and installing Raisbeck’s ZR LITE and Aft Fuselage Locker for the Learjet 30 series to both current and prospective customers in the South American market.
Líder Aviação’s unwavering commitment to service insures that customers can rely on a fully automated service center and a specialized team ready to analyze all operational and commercial details in regard to their flight needs, supplying them with the best solutions, fast and safely. José de Freitas Junior, director of maintenance at Líder, is eager to support Raisbeck systems.
“We are honored to offer Raisbeck Learjet Performance Systems at our facility as an authorized dealer,” said Freitas. “Our heritage working with the Learjet fleet makes us an excellent source for all of your Learjet needs.”
Líder Aviação began as an executive charter operation, chartering Cessna 170-A in 1958 and expanding their fleet by 12 in 1961. Today, Líder offers a complete integration of customized solutions in corporate aviation, including Helicopter Operations, Aircraft Chartering and Management, Aircraft Sales, Aircraft Maintenance, Ground Handling, Insurance, Pilot Training, Helicopter blades repair and Air Ambulance support.
Nick Nicholson, Raisbeck’s Sales Manager for Learjet Performance Systems, anticipates rising international sales for ZR LITE and the Aft Fuselage Locker, forecasting Líder will play an integral role in this process.
“ZR LITE international sales have steadily increased this year, with our 100th sale quickly approaching,” said Nicholson. “Líder provides our customers with top of the line service and expertise which mirrors Raisbeck’s philosophy. We are happy to have them on board.”
The ZR LITE Performance System enhances the takeoff, climb, cruise, and descent performance of the Learjet, enabling the aircraft to fly higher, faster and consistently save as much as 11% or more in fuel.
