FAA and Brazil Strengthen Relationship
The bilateral cooperation focuses on airport expansion, airspace, management, aviation safety, and security.
The FAA has announced a partnership with Brazil that will hope to improve airport expansion, airspace management, aviation safety, and security.
“As traffic continues to increase between our countries, it is vital that operators are able to fly safely and seamlessly between our respective systems,” said Acting Deputy Administrator Victoria Wassmer at the International Air Transport Association Wings of Change Conference. “By working together, the United States’ NextGen and Brazil’s Sirius programs are leading to safer, more efficient and environmentally friendly aviation systems in not only both countries but around the globe.”
Brazil has the world’s third largest aircraft manufacturer, Embraer S.A., and is a destination for more than seven percent of the annual outbound international traffic from the United States.
