17 / 04 / 2018

Miami-based Aeronautical Engineers Inc (AEI) has signed a contract for a fourth CRJ200 SF freighter conversion for Mexico-based carrier Aeronaves TSM (TSM).

Modification work will start in June of 2018 and delivery of the converted aircraft is scheduled for October this year. The work will be carried out at Commercial Jet’s Dothan, Alabama facility.

The AEI CRJ200 SF has a capacity of eight 61.5” x 88” containers or pallets.

Ultimately, TSM plans to operate many more similar freighters, said AEI.

The carrier currently operates nine AEI MD-80SF series and two CRJ200 SF freighters, and is the converter’s largest Central American customer.

TSM serves customers throughout the Americas including the US, Canada, México, Guatemala, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Panamá. Other aircraft in its cargo fleet include 25 Metro IIIs, 4 Convair 640s, six DC-9-30s and two DC-9-15s.
