ANAC was a co-host at IBAS and received delegations from 26 Latin American countries meeting in CORSIA and CLAC.

IATA also co-hosted the “Wings of Change”, a major global forum for discussions between airlines, airports, the supply chain and governments.

The unpublished Brazilian chapter of “Women in Aviation” was launched, an international entity that congregates women who work in the aerospace sector. This launch was attended by the most important person from ICAO, Secretary General Fang Liu and Boeing President in Brazil, Donna Hrinak.

In the skies of Copacabana we had, to the delight of the population, aerial exhibitions at the end of the week. The Smoke Squadron, Sky Squadron, a Boeing of Gol making passages on the border and the acrobat Patrícia Ramanauskas in its own aircraft were presented. She is also co-pilot of Azul and honored the creation of the Brazilian chapter of Women in Aviation Int’l.

The general feedback from the exhibitors, participants and the general public was remarkably positive.
