History

The National Syndicate of Agricultural Aviation Companies (SINDAG – acronym in portuguese) have the mission of represent, assist and protect the interests of member companies and the class members.

The SINDAG was created at a meeting held on July 19, 1991, at São Paulo. The organization’s statutes had the registration completed on March 12, 1992, when then started officially the activities of the syndicate.

The SINDAG was created by the need that the agricultural aviation companies felt in have a strong syndicate, which legally represented them for all purposes, by the official organs of the private sector and in public opinion. Before SINDAG existed the FENAG – National Federation of Agricultural Aviation. This entity has provided great services to the sector, however not directly met the companies, but regional associations of the companies – five in number – and, by not having characteristics of union representation, could not legally represent the members. Hence the need for creation of SINDAG, that has full power to represent the class.
