Lockheed to sell 10 LM-100J freighters to Brazil's Bravo

Recommended Posts

(Reuters) - Bravo Industries LLC, a Brazil-based logistics firm, has agreed to buy 10 LM-100J commercial freighter aircraft from Lockheed Martin Corp (LMT.N), the two companies announced on Tuesday.



Bravo’s Logística division, which consists of Bravo Cargas and Bravo MRO (maintenance, repair and overhaul), plans to operate the turboprop LM-100J for air cargo operations in Brazil, the companies said.



Lockheed and Bravo officials signed a term sheet for the deal at the Farnborough International Airshow outside London, with detailed negotiations to follow. They gave no financial details.



“The LM-100J is uniquely suited to reach Brazil’s underserved regions where we do business. These are areas that lack ground support and certain critical infrastructure required by other commercial freighters," J.R. Pereira, president and CEO of Bravo Industries, said in a statement.



Bravo is the third buyer for the commercial variant of Lockheed's popular C-130J military transport plane, which can land on shorter and unimproved runways. It mirrors the military plane, without military avionics and communications equipment.

Será que esta é mais uma de série? "Só acredito quando pousar por aqui?" (não falo só acredito quando estiver no gate porque não opera em gate).

FARNBOROUGH, United Kingdom, July 12, 2016 – Bravo Industries, LLC, announced that it will purchase 10 LM-100J Super Hercules commercial freighter aircraft from Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) here today.


Bravo is a logistics and defense group with operations in and focused on Brazil. Bravo’s Logística division, which consists of Bravo Cargas and Bravo MRO (maintenance, repair and overhaul), will operate the LM-100J for air cargo operations in Brazil.


“When we examined the market and regional demands for our logistics operations, there was only one aircraft that could do all the jobs we needed it to do to serve our customers: the LM-100J.” said JR Pereira, president and CEO of Bravo Industries. “The LM-100J is uniquely suited to reach Brazil’s underserved regions where we do business. These are areas that lack ground support and certain critical infrastructure required by other commercial freighters. The LM-100J was designed to meet the varying needs of the Brazilian landscape, in turn, allowing Bravo to deliver vital goods and services where they are needed most.”

Bravo’s air cargo services include scheduled and route-specific solutions (same-day, next-day, etc.), as well as special cargo handling (heavy, odd-shaped, hazardous, refrigerated, etc.) and custom operations.

“Bravo Industries is a natural and welcome addition to the global Super Hercules family,” said Orlando Carvalho, executive vice president, Lockheed Martin Aeronautics. “Like the C-130J on which it is based, the LM-100J is built to go where other aircraft can’t, don’t and won’t. The LM-100J is the only commercial freighter that can fully meet the varying demands of the Brazilian market. Bravo is the ideal operator to introduce the LM-100J’s unmatched capabilities in this pivotal region of the world.”

Bravo is partnered with Height Securities, a Washington, D.C.-based broker-dealer serving the company as exclusive financial advisor and placement agent. Both organizations are working directly with Lockheed Martin on this acquisition. Global law firm Squire Patton Boggs is providing legal counsel to Bravo.

“We are honored to support Bravo as it delivers reliable, principled heavy air cargo and aircraft maintenance solutions to its customers,” said John Akridge, founder and managing partner of Height. “Our colleagues at Lockheed Martin are playing an integral role in deploying this uniquely suited aircraft to the Brazilian marketplace and broader Latin American arena, and Bravo — through its use of this distinctive aircraft — is poised to revolutionize logistics offerings to achieve a better tomorrow for the region’s economies, businesses and people.”

Lateral Investment Management, a San Mateo, California-based investment firm, is providing funding to Bravo for the LM-100J acquisition.

“We see tremendous opportunities for civilian application of the Super Hercules platform,” said Kenneth Masters, managing partner of Lateral. “We are excited to provide the capital solution behind Bravo’s procurement of this exceptional aircraft.”

The LM-100J is the civil-certified version of Lockheed Martin’s proven C-130J Super Hercules aircraft. The first LM-100J is currently in production and will undergo an FAA type certificate update prior to delivery in 2018. Through select design innovations, the LM-100J will perform as a commercial multi-purpose air freighter capable of rapid and efficient cargo transport.

The LM-100J incorporates technological developments and improvements over the existing L-100s that result from years of military C-130J operational experience, including more than 1.3 million flight hours by operators in 16 nations. The result of this experience and advancement translates to an aircraft that will deliver reliable service in a multi-role platform for decades to come.

"Me reuni ontem, em Brasília, com representantes da empresa americana Lockheed Martin e de sua parceira Bravo Industries. Eles anunciaram a instalação de uma base de manutenção de turbinas aéreas no Recife. A Lockheed é uma das maiores indústrias da área de tecnologia e segurança do Mundo, e escolheu a capital pernambucana por ser um centro de logística e pela proximidade do Porto Digital, que agrega altíssima tecnologia ao projeto. A base de operações deve atender aeronaves de toda a América Latina e da África.

O anúncio coroa os esforços que fizemos, juntamente com a presidente Dilma, desde 2015, quando estivemos com os CEOs da companhia em Nova Iorque e convidamos formalmente a empresa para vir ao Brasil tratar de oportunidades de investimento e parcerias.

 

Pernambuco tem muito a ganhar com a instalação dessa unidade. É um investimento importante, não só pelo valor aportado, mas também por ser uma planta de alta tecnologia, que gera empregos de grande qualificação e que vai reforçar a posição de Recife como hub de aviação.

 

O presidente da Bravo, JR Pereira, e o vice-presidente da Lockheed, Raymond Fajay, reafirmaram o nosso papel na conquista dos investimentos para Pernambuco. “O senador é o patrono desse projeto, já que tudo começou quando ele estava no MDIC. Por isso, fizemos questão de vir aqui dar a boa notícia”, afirmaram.

 

Também participaram do encontro o vice-presidente da Bravo, Lourenço Cunha; o vice-diretor para Europa e Américas da Lockheed, John A. Lopes; e o representante da Height Securities, John Akridge."

Nobres, qual será a estratégia de ter ‘negócios’ naquela região, seja transporte de carga aérea, seja fábrica de palitos de fósforo?

 

Claro, é uma pergunta de leigo sob o ponto de vista, fiscal, geográfico, logístico, enfim, tudo.

Em São Jose da Lapa a FAB tem uma parceira que está em processo de habilitação para faz revisões em seus motores Alisson que equipam os C-130 . Agora esta operação da LM em solo brasileiro ainda está meio estranha .

Como postado acima quando pousar o primeiro em terra brasilis podemos confiar um pouco mais .

Quero muito estar errado, mas isso lembra Tupolev (ou Ilyushin?) e Clean Air.

 

Será que uma empresa do porte de Lockheed cairia nisso? No Google a única coisa que aparece sobre a empresa é a compra.

Senador alinhado com o PT + historia mal contada = não pode ser coisa boa.
