Embraer Executive Jets signs MoU with Indamer for Legacy 500 maintenance support
Embraer Executive Jets has inked a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Indamer to provide maintenance support for the midsize Legacy 500 aircraft, ahead of the jets’ expected entry into service in 2014. The Legacy 500 is currently in the flight test stage following the successful maiden flight of the first prototype on 27th November, 2012. Indamer is one of an initial 17 service centers worldwide to enter into MoUs with Embraer Executive Jets for Legacy 500 product support. The move is part of the company’s maturity strategy to have all product support in place worldwide before the Legacy 500 jet enters into service in 2014. The MoU with Indamer extends the maintenance service provider’s mission in India, where it already offers line and base maintenance for the entire portfolio of Embraer’s Executive Jets in India today, including the entry-level Phenom 100, super-midsize Legacy 600, long-range Legacy 650 and ultra-large Lineage 1000. Indamer is one of two authorized service providers for Embraer Executive Jets in the country; the other is Air Works which provides maintenance support for Phenom 100 jets in the market.
