12 / 12 / 2018
Aeronautical Engineers Inc (AEI) has received Transport Canada approval for its CRJ200 SF passenger-to-freighter conversion.
The Transport Canada approval (SA18-130) allows for the operation of Canadian registered CRJ200 SF freighters, which have a capacity for up to 6.6 tonnes of cargo.
At the end of 2016, AEI received the original supplemental type certificate (STC) for the CRJ200 SF from the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and in May of this year received approval from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA).
Currently, AEI has over 45 firm orders and commitments for the freighter. Since certification, AEI has delivered 10 CRJ200 SFs and will redeliver the 11th overall later this month.
“As a Canadian manufactured aircraft, there is of course great regional interest in the AEI converted CRJ200 SF freighter said Robert Convey, AEI senior vice president sales and marketing, adding: “There are many routes in Canada which make for a perfect fit for this freighter.”
The conversion comes with a large main cargo door and wan ANCRA cargo loading system.
