Aeronautical Engineers, Inc (AEI) has gained UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) approval for its 12-pallet position B737-800SF freighter conversion.

AEI currently has US Federal Aviation Administration, Civil Aviation Administration of China, European Union Aviation Safety Agency, Transport Canada Civil Aviation, Cayman, Guernsey, and now CAA approvals for its B737-800SF freighter conversion.

The first AEI B737-800SF converted freighter for which this approval will apply has recently arrived in the UK and will begin operations shortly with an undisclosed customer.

This is the first CAA approval that AEI has gained from the UK authorities, until the country left the European Union aircraft approvals were governed by EASA.

The AEI converted B737-800SF freighter offers a maindeck payload of up to 23.9 tonnes and incorporates 11 full height 88” x 125” container positions, plus an additional position for an AEP/AEH.
