    Brazil Flight Operation Updates: Changes in Brazil Navigation Fees Calculation & Flight Permits Requirements

    triangle | By Just Aviation Team

    Brazil is undergoing significant changes to navigation fees for Part 121/129 Operators, aiming to improve transparency and accuracy. The Department of Airspace Control (DECEA) will now directly charge navigation fees separately from airport fees. This change is gradually rolling out across Brazilian airports. ANAC has also updated Part 135 Flight Rules, allowing multiple entries into Brazil with 60-day permits. Valid documentation for aircraft, pilots, and worldwide insurance is crucial. Operators should stay in close communication with ground handlers and aviation authorities to ensure compliance and avoid penalties and operational disruptions.

    ANAC – Brazil Sustainable Flight Operation

    Brazil Civil Aviation Authority is working on CO2 Emissions Reduction.
    Brazil possesses extensive expertise in the biofuels industry, particularly in ethanol and biodiesel production. The country’s favorable climate and geographic attributes make the development of this production chain a significant socio-economic cornerstone. In the transportation sector, the pursuit of efficiency improvements aligns with energy security and emission reduction goals, offering substantial incentives for transitioning to alternative energy sources.

    In this context, the “Combustível do Futuro” program was established, encompassing various initiatives aimed at integrating sustainable aviation fuels into Brazil’s energy landscape. This undertaking involved extensive collaboration between the government, society, and various stakeholders, reflecting a comprehensive approach to the project’s implementation and its guiding principles.
