05 / 01 / 2021
Aeronautical Engineers Inc. (AEI) is to provide a fifth B737-800SF freighter conversion for Aviation Holdings III Investments.
The aircraft (MSN: TBD) is scheduled to commence modification in April this year, with work carried out in Miami by Commercial Jet, the authorised AEI conversion centre.
The AEI converted B737-800SF freighter offers a main deck payload of up to 52,700 lbs. (23.9 tonnes) and incorporates eleven full height 88” x 125” container positions, plus an additional position for an AEP/AEH.
The conversion also incorporates new floor beams aft of the wing box, a large 86” x 137” Main Cargo Door with a single vent door system.
AEI’s design allows for containers to be loaded into the aircraft a full 16.5” aft of the forward door jamb, ensuring ground operators have sufficient manoeuvring room which minimizes potential door and aircraft strikes.
The AEI B737-800SF includes a flexible Ancra Cargo Loading System, a rigid 9g barrier, five supernumerary seats as standard and a galley.
