Summary

I have 15 years of experience in the aeronautical business. I began my career at an Air Taxi Company (Morro Vermelho Taxi Aereo) that, besides owning some executive aircraft , was a repair shop for third parties' aircraft. Then I went to Embraer, currently the third larger aircraft industry in the world, to work on the technical support. At ELEB (a joint venture between Embraer and Liebherr) I worked on a parts & components repair shop (landing gears, actuators, valves, release units, bomb racks, etc.) and also on technical support. I've been Maintenance Director at Platinum Air Linhas Aereas during its certification process, Maintenance Manager at Air Minas Linhas Aereas and Quality and Reliability Manager at BRA Transportes Aereos.

Currently I work as a consultant for aviation business and industry.
