"It´s really great for us to have one more Cessna 208B Grand Caravan in our fleet. It is an amazing, multi-purpose aircraft with low maintenance cost and our fleet has been extremely useful to our Force," said Colonel Luzzi, Director of Lagoa Santa Depot, the organization responsible for third-level maintenance of Brazilian Air Force Caravan aircraft.

"Cessna is proud to have a highly regarded organization such as the FAB operate the largest fleet of Caravans outside the United States in the world and to put the model's versatility to use on diverse missions, whether it's cargo and passenger transport or utilitarian and special mission air operations," said Bob Gibbs, Cessna's director of international sales. "Throughout its 25-year history, the Caravan has proven its versatility, offering impressive hauling capacity and reliable performance."

The first FAB Caravan started service in 1987. They are based around the country and perform a variety of roles. The single-engine turboprop Caravan is certified in 100 countries and the fleet of 2,000-plus aircraft has amassed more than 13 million flight hours. It received FAA type certification in 1984 and marked its first customer delivery in 1985.
