    Overflight Permits in Brazil’s International Operations

    Overflight permits have become a requisite when entering Brazilian airspace, encompassing both the landmass and waters, marking a notable change in regulatory practice. The process for obtaining these permits involves notifying the Brazilian Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) about your intended flight path without the issuance of a formal permit number. Notification requirements mirror those necessary for a single technical stop in Brazil.

    This entails providing details such as your aircraft’s tail number, country of registration, aircraft type, maximum landing and takeoff weights, the name of the Pilot in Command (PIC), operator’s address and name, operator’s email address, the type of flight (charter [non-scheduled commercial] or private non-revenue), departure and destination points in Brazil, and the next destination after Brazil. Deviation is permissible within a range of -24 hours to +24 hours from the estimated ETA. To ensure a seamless overflight through Brazilian airspace, it is crucial to stay updated on these regulations, as they have evolved in recent times. Always ensure compliance when planning overflights in Brazil to avoid any potential issues.

    Landing Permits in Brazil's International Operations

    Obtaining a landing permit for Brazil involves submitting essential aircraft, passenger, and crew details, along with required documentation, such as a certificate of airworthiness, registration, and insurance with 3rd-party liability coverage. Crew members should possess type-rated licenses and first-class medical certificates. The Brazilian Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) typically mandates a minimum lead time of 48 hours for processing landing permit requests. These permits are valid for the planned day of arrival, with a permissible deviation of 24 hours before and 48 hours after the Estimated Time of Arrival (ETA). 

    The permit’s duration is determined by customs clearance upon arrival, which can extend up to a maximum of 60 days. If you plan to stay beyond the initially approved date, it is essential to request a permit revision, which typically requires 15 days’ lead time, though the CAA may expedite it at their discretion. It’s vital to note that permit revisions are mandatory for crew changes or arrivals beyond the approved deviation. However, no revision is required for changes in passengers, destination, departure point, or schedule, as long as they remain within the permitted deviation. Compliance with these permit requirements is fundamental for the smooth execution of business aviation operations in Brazil.
