Boeing Super Hornet partner GE Aviation recently signed memoranda of understanding (MoUs) with Brazilian companies to become potential suppliers for the programme’s global supply chain, strengthening the in-country component of Boeing’s F/A-18 offering for the Brazilian F-X2 fighter jet competition.

The MoUs with Grauna Aerospace S.A., Increase Aviation Service Ltd., TAP Maintenance and Engineering and AKAER provide local expertise in different areas of aircraft maintenance, manufacturing and engineering.

The memoranda outline the potential for GE Aviation to develop programmes with the Brazilian companies to establish long-term aircraft support within Brazil. The programmes would include technology transfer as well as training in maintenance and assembly and engine inspection and testing.
