September Jurisdictional Update – Brazil

ANAC is trying to simplify rules for the airlines to encourage business in Brazil. They are working with other authorities abroad, trying to standardize the certification of aircraft and simplify processes and procedures. They have issued temporary rules for reimbursements and rescheduling flights. Even before the pandemic, ANAC started the digitizing processes and now everything is online except inspections.

There is even a new system for registering drones. They can be registered from abroad and if approved by the FAA, they are automatically approved in Brazil, unless there is a special case that needs separate approval.

Banks, financing, and imports are making a comeback in Brazil. There has been some restructuring of airlines, but this marketing is the only segment that saw growth during the summer months, and it was even better than before the pandemic.


I am fortunate to have found Ulrich. He is one of a select group of outside attorneys on whom I absolutely rely.

It is important to us to have attorneys in foreign jurisdictions with aircraft and/or aviation finance experience.  We have been happy with our L2b lawyers.

The L2b Aviation tax booklet has been so helpful to me and my practice!

I trust Ulrich’s judgment – his advice is both legally on point and commercially savvy. In reality, Ulrich functions more like an in-house attorney, since he acts on our behalf with very little supervision or direction required.

Extremely responsive, very helpful and highly knowledgeable: they understand the cultural issues faced by foreign firms – Santamarina y Steta
