Canada approves AEI’s B737-800SF conversions

AEI B737-800SF

Transport Canada Civil Aviation has approved conversion firm Aeronautical Engineers, Inc’s (AEI) Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for its 12-pallet position B737-800SF freighter conversion.

Last month, AEI announced a contract to provide Chrono Aviation with a B737-800SF freighter conversion, which represents AEI’s first Canadian-based customer.

The AEI converted B737-800SF freighter offers a maindeck payload of around 24 tonnes and incorporates eleven full height 88” x 125” container positions, plus an additional position for an AEP/AEH.

Last week the company received ETOPS 180 approval from the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for its B737-800SF freighter conversion.

The ETOPS 180 approval allows the B737-800SF freighter to fly 180-minute extended operations over water and remote regions.
