Since the early days of Latin American aviation, airlines such as Colombia's SCADTA (now Avianca) and Brazil's VARIG have expanded their routes with Boeing airplanes. Boeing provides the region's commercial and defense sectors with products, systems, services, and support and works closely with Latin American suppliers. Boeing partnerships include creating MEXSAT, Mexico's end-to-end satellite communications system for civil telecommunications and national security needs. Boeing history in Brazil dates from 1932, when the company delivered 14 F4B-4 fighters. Today, Boeing works with leading Brazilian researchers on technology to develop new aviation biofuels.
