Embraer on Monday broke ground for its second executive jet service center in the U.S. at Bradley International Airport in Windsor Locks, Conn. The event comes just three weeks after a groundbreaking ceremony at Williams Gateway Airport in Mesa, Ariz., for a similar facility. The 45,000-square-foot Windsor Locks center is scheduled for completion in mid-2008 and will be dedicated to after-sales service for Embraer’s Phenom 100, Phenom 300 and Legacy 600 executive jets. "Today's ground breaking marks another chapter in Embraer's commitment to provide first-class service and product support to our increasing customer base," said Embraer President and CEO Frederico Fleury Curado. Ground-breaking on a third purpose-built, factory owned-and-operated service center in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., will take place next month.

Embraer said each service center facility will be capable of providing full-service aircraft care, including routine inspection, scheduled and unscheduled maintenance, and airframe, powerplant, avionics, and other systems repairs, 24/7 assistance, Aircraft On Ground (AOG) rescue team and an inventory of expendable and repairable parts.
