The AT-402A is powered by Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A-11AG and the AT-402B is powered by a PT6A-15AG engine. Otherwise, the aircraft and props are identical. The new owners are Celso Jose Minozzo and Orlando Henrique Ferrari Polato. 

The normal flight time to the state of Mato Grosso in the heart of Brazil is approximately 32 tach hours that takes about five days. The route of flight starts in Rosenberg, Texas direct to Fort Lauderdale, Florida over the Gulf of Mexico the first day, followed by a direct leg to Aquadilla, Puerto Rico the second day. The third day takes the duo to Grenada, a relatively short flight instead of continuing on to Boa Vista in order to avoid arriving there amidst late afternoon thunderstorms. On the fourth day, the pilots enter into Brazil with their first port of entry in Boa Vista. Fifth day they fly to Sinop with an overnight there. The sixth day, if good weather throughout the trip, the aircraft will arrive at their destination in Cuiaba. 

These two AT-402s are the first Air Tractors to be delivered to Brazil in 2019. Last  year Air Tractor sold and delivered over 50 Air Tractors of all models, including the first AT-602s for Brazil. Lane Aviation, through its Brazilian representative AeroGlobo and its affiliate, Argentine company Falconer, sold and delivered over 25 Air Tractors into Argentina and Brazil in 2018.
