Is It Possible to Get Financing for an Aircraft in Brazil?

Question: Hello, my name is Roger. I had a 172 financed by AOPA, I’m semi-retired and travel to Brazil frequently with long stays. Is it possible to get financing for an aircraft in Brazil? I’m a (US) citizen with a business in the United States. 

Answer: The aircraft lenders we work with are all US-based and require that the aircraft be registered with the FAA and based in the US.  There are some exceptions for aircraft based in Canada, but these exceptions are typically limited to purchases of business-class aircraft.  If you want to fly back and forth from a foreign country, lenders would require specific insurance to be in place, and the airplane would still need to be based and registered in the US.
