Precision converted B757-200
Oregon-headquartered Precision Aircraft Solutions has completed work on its sixth conversion of this year for European Air Transport Leipzig Airline (EAT), the largest of three airlines that provide dedicated service to the European, Middle Eastern and North African networks of DHL Express.
The conversion of the 757-200 aircraft, model MSN 29946, was undertaken by Flightstar Aircraft Services at its facility in Jacksonville, Florida.
Precision’s president, Gary Warner, pointed to what he said was “DHL Express’ continued confidence in the Precision product”, adding: “Each redelivery is a symbol of our commitment to fulfilling our customers’ highest expectations.”
Precision Aircraft Solutions offers passenger-to-freighter (P2F) conversions, various aircraft modification options, and a wide range of integrated aircraft services.
As Precision Aircraft Solutions and in its former guise as Precision Conversions, it provided 757 freighter and combi conversions for carriers such as SF Airlines, DHL, Air China Cargo and ATI.
Precision’s 757 freighter conversion is known as the 757 PCF, and its 757 combi conversion is named the 757 PCC.
According to Precision, its 757 freighter offers the highest payload (it can take 15 pallets), the only winglet-compatible design and the lowest operational empty weight (OEW) of any 757 conversion in production today.
