AEI B737-800SF

GA Telesis is exercising an option for a second B737-800SF freighter conversion with Aeronautical Engineers, Inc. (AEI).

The second aircraft (MSN 28826) will commence modification at the end of January 2021 and is scheduled for redelivery in early May 2021. All modification touch labor will be performed by the authorised AEI Conversion Center, Commercial Jet, in Miami, Florida.

This news follows an announcement for the first B737-800SF awarded in July 2020.

“GA Telesis exercising its option aircraft immediately after the first order, solidifies their focus on the air cargo sector and further supports the outlook of the B737-800SF being the dominate freighter in the narrowbody market for decades to come,” said Robert Convey, AEI senior vice president sales & marketing.

The AEI converted B737-800SF freighter offers a maindeck payload of up to 23,904 kg and incorporates eleven full height 88” x 125” container positions, plus an additional position for an AEP/AEH.
