Labace 2018

August has begun, and the final countdown to the largest Latin American business aviation event – LABACE – has started, as well.

LABACE, The Leading Business Aviation Event in Latin America

LABACE, Latin American Business Aviation Conference, and Exhibition, turns 16-years-old this year. In its 16 years, the event has attracted over 1,830 exhibitors that have exhibited over 650 aircraft for over 145,000 visitors.

As usual, the event will take place at the Congonhas Airport in São Paulo, Brazil. The show will attract the world’s biggest names in aviation, like Dassault Falcon, Garmin, Bombardier, and, of course, Jetex – where we look forward to presenting phase two of GATGRU and its developments.

LABACE, Uniting the Community

This event gives the exhibitors the opportunity to connect with their audience while teaching them about the latest developments happening in the world of aviation. Local and International companies participate, alongside manufacturers, operators, maintenance shops, interior finishers, equipment providers, and airport builders, developers.

Visitors will get the chance to check out the latest aircraft to hit the market in the static area, which is located on the airport’s auxiliary ramp space. Visitors will also have the opportunity to explore the stands that are in the chalet villages.

Delegates will have the opportunity to attend a number of seminars and discussions that cover a wide range of topics. Those attending any of the seminars can expect lively and constructive sessions, as the top industry representatives talk about the critical issues and will lay out the foundations for the future of business aviation expected in the region.

LABACE, Flying to Brazil

Are you heading to São Paulo, Brazil for LABACE?

Whether you have a jet or need a charter, we have you covered! Our Trip Planning team will get everything set and ready for you to go, from the permits to departure, to landing. All flights heading to Brazil will need to have these documents ready:

  • The Landing Permit
  • Pilot in Command [PIC]
  • Second in Command [SIC]
  • First Class Medicals & Type Ratings
  • Worldwide Insurance Certificate [including 3rd party liability clause of behalf of the operator]
  • Full Flight Schedule
  • Details on Purpose of Flight
  • Operations Specifications [D085 & B050] – for Charter
  • Aircraft Operator Certificate [AOC] or Air Carrier Certificate [ACC] – for Charter
  • Valid Passports for Passengers and Crew
  • Passenger Visas [Certain Nationalities]
  • Crew Visas [if staying in Brazil longer than 10 days]
  • Pilot’s Licenses
  • General Declaration [GenDec]

LABACE, Taxing Options

The event takes place at the Congonhas Airport [IATA: CGH, ICAO: SBSP], São Paulo’s domestic-only airport, which is why this airport cannot serve as an Airport of Entry [AoE]. For this reason, the most convenient option for visitors traveling to the event to taxi into Guarulhos International Airport [IATA: GRU, ICAO: SBGR].

This airport operates 24-hours a day and offers a full range of ground handling services. The only thing to keep in mind is that, typically, aircraft parking is limited to 48-hours with a PPR [Prior Permission Required], and extensions are difficult to come by because of the airport’s traffic.

SBGR is not the only option, other airports work as an entry point, like Campinas International Airport [IATA: VCP, ICAO: SBKP], Manaus International Airport [IATA: MAO, ICAO: SBEG], or Recife International Airport [IATA: REC, ICAO: SBRF].
