Accidents and incidents[edit]

  • 06 August 2010: An Embraer EMB-810C Seneca II registration PT-RMX enroute from Piquiatuba airfield to Santarém for refueling experienced engine problems and landed on a farm. The pilot was unhurt. Investigation revealed the owner of the aircraft, Piquiatuba Taxi Áereo LTDA had not been following proper maintenance procedures.[4]
  • 07 September 2017: A Cessna 210 registration PT-KKK on a medevac flight to Piquiatuba (SNCJ), 16km southeast of the airport. The airplane lost engine power and diverted to Santarém. Unable to reach the runway, the pilot decided to land the aircraft on a beach 4 km east of the runway. All 4 people onboard survived. The investigation concluded the airplane did not have enough fuel for the flights it made, ultimately resulting in the crash due to fuel starvation to the engine. This accident resulted in Brazil's Aeronautical Accidents Investigation and Prevention Center (CENIPA) recommending the suspension of Piquiatuba Taxi Aéreo's license due to poor operational safety management.[5]
