Precision begins B757-200PCF conversion
24 / 02 / 2015
Precision Aircraft Solutions has begun conversion of the first B757-200PCF aircraft for Asia Pacific Airlines.
Mike Quinn, president of Asia Pacific Airlines, said: “Asia Pacific had very specific needs for our operating area. We not only had to have Pratt & Whitney engines and Boeing APB winglets installed, but we also had to have an aircraft that could be certified for 180 minutes Extended-range Twin-engine Operational Performance in order to cover the long distances we fly over the Pacific.
“The Precision team was an absolute pleasure to work with in putting this unique aircraft together. Their STC was flexible enough to handle all of our requirements.”
Asia Pacific Airlines currently operates a fleet of three Boeing 727 freighters in the western and southern Pacific areas, carrying primarily the US mail and fresh tuna for the Japanese and US markets.
The conversion of B757-200PCF is underway at the AeroTurbine MRO facility in Goodyear, Arizona.
