Embraer Unidade Gavião Peixoto Airport (ICAO: SBGP) is a private airport located near Gavião Peixoto, Brazil. It is owned and operated by Embraer and used as for testing civil and military aircraft.

History[edit]

On October 2001 Embraer opened a plant on the Aerodrome of Gavião Peixoto, near Araraquara, to house the final assembly of aircraft and to test equipment and technology. For this purpose, Embraer built runway 02/20 with 4,967 x 45 m, considered to be the longest public use runway in the Americas and the fifth longest in the world. Even so, only 3,000 m are actually used. Embraer offers customer support for its clientele on the site.

The plant manufactures the wings of the Embraer 190 and 195, the Embraer EMB 314 Super Tucano aircraft, the refurbishing of the Northrop F-5 of the Brazilian Air Force, and since 2008 the final assembly of Phenom 100 and Phenom 300 aircraft.[3]
