Aero Capital Solutions (ACS) has signed up for four B737-800SF freighter conversions from Aeronautical Engineers, Inc. (AEI).
ACS is an Austin-based leading mid-life aircraft lessor and the conversions represent the first freighters to be offered by ACS to the global air cargo market.
All the freighter conversions are to be modified by the authorised AEI Conversion Center, STAECO, located in Shandong.
The first aircraft has already commenced modification and will be redelivered in January 2021. The remaining three freighter conversions are scheduled to be completed and delivered in the first half of 2021.
The AEI converted B737-800SF freighter offers a main deck payload of up to 23.9 tonnes and incorporates eleven full height 88” x 125” container positions.
