Everts Air Cargo to convert an MD-88 to expand fleet

Source: AEI

Everts Air Cargo is expanding its fleet with the conversion of an MD-88SF into a freighter configuration through Aeronautical Engineers, Inc. (AEI).

The aircraft will commence conversion in March 2023 with modification touch labor being performed by Dothan, Alabama-based, Commercial Jet, which is an authorised AEI Conversion Center.

Everts will use the freighter to accommodate fleet expansion plans.

The AEI MD-88SF is capable of carrying 12 88” x 108” Containers/Pallets.

Everts Air Cargo is the sister company to Everts Air Alaska and serves customers residing in larger Alaskan cities, as well as, small villages in remote locations.

The company’s primary business is transporting freight and mail, as well as the movement of oversized freight, hazardous materials and small packages.

The company’s fleet consists of C-46 and DC-6 aircraft, which are well-suited to the many shorter, unimproved gravel or ice runways in Alaska, along with DC-9s, and MD-80s.
