AEI to convert three more MD-83S freighters for Mexico's Aeronaves

14 / 11 / 2017

Aeronautical Engineers, Inc. (AEI) has signed a contract to provide Mexico-based Aeronaves with three additional MD-83S freighter conversions.

The first MD-83 aircraft will commence modification on December 11, followed by the second MD-83 in February of 2018 and then a third MD-83 in late April, 2018.

All the AEI MD-83SF modifications will be performed by Commercial Jet’s Miami, Florida facility.
Last week, AEI delivered an MD-83SF to Aeronaves, which represents the largest overall operator of AEI’s MD-80SF series freighters.

Including this order, Aeronaves will operate a total of ten AEI MD-80SF series freighters.

Additionally, Aeronaves currently has two AEI CRJ 200SF undergoing conversion at Commercial Jet’s Dothan, Alabama facility.
