National Civil Aviation Agency of Brazil

The National Civil Aviation Agency (Agência Nacional de Aviação Civil in Portuguese), also known as ANAC, is the Brazilian civil aviation authority, created in 2006. It is headquartered in the Edifício Parque Cidade Corporate in Brasília.[1]

A part of the Brazilian Secretariat of Civil Aviation, the agency raised from the former Department of Civil Aviation (DAC) and the Civil Aviation Certification Division (Aeronautical Technical Center - CTA), the Brazilian aircraft certification authority. In Brazil, ANAC is responsible for regulating safety and security matters related to civil aircraft and its components, personnel licensing, operations and aerodromes.


  • Brazilian civil aircraft fleet is one of the largest around the world, with more than 10,000 units flying. The executive helicopters fleet is the second one, most of them operating in the city of São Paulo. ANAC is the agency that controls their concessions and operations.
  • ANAC also regulates the number of maximum operations (slots) in some airports due to its capacity limitations. Presently they are:
São Paulo-Congonhas Airport with 30 operations an hour
São Paulo/Guarulhos-Gov. Franco Montoro International Airport with 45 operations an hour.
Rio de Janeiro-Galeão/Antonio Carlos Jobim Internanational Airport
Rio de Janeiro-Santos Dumont Airport
Brasília-Pres. Juscelino Kubitscheck International Airport

On March 16, 2010, ANAC announced that similar slot restrictions, particularly on peak hours will be implemented in 2010 at the following airports:[2]

Belo Horizonte/Confins-Pres. Tancredo Neves International Airport
Brasília-Pres. Juscelino Kubitscheck International Airport (Implemented)
Campinas-Viracopos Airport
Cuiabá-Marechal Rondon International Airport
Fortaleza-Pinto Martins International Airport
Salvador-Dep. Luís Eduardo Magalhães International Airport
  • ANAC is responsible for approving the aircraft made by Embraer, top 3 among all the commercial jets manufacturers, after U.S.-based Boeing and France-based Airbus.
