Mammoth Freighters has awarded Collins Aerospace a contract for its “Main Deck Cargo Handling Systems” as part of its 777 P2F conversion programme.

In a LinkedIn post, Mammoth said: “The Mammoth system will share parts commonality with the 777 production freighter already in service with many operators, and most high use/high mortality components will be interchangeable with OEM materials.

“This cargo handling system has been proven reliable through years of service and this award is welcomed by the operator community. Our alliance with Collins Aerospace is a great addition to the Mammoth Freighters 777 P2F conversion programme.”

Triumph Group’s Interiors business has also recently been awarded a contract for composite air distribution ducts on Mammoth Freighters’ Boeing 777 Passenger to Freighter (P2F) conversions.

Triumph Interiors will provide manufacturing and engineering support services for Mammoth Freighters’ re-designed air distribution ducting system in the cargo compartment. 

Florida-based Mammoth Freighters announced its plans for Boeing 777-200LR and 777-300ER passenger-to-freighter conversion programmes in September 2021.

Cargojet became the launch customer for Mammoth’s B777-200LR freighter conversion programme in November 2021.

Earlier this month, Mammoth Freighters said its 777-200LR prototype is being prepared for the initial stages of conversion at a US facility for Cargojet.

Saudi Arabian Airlines placed an order with Mammoth Freighters for the conversion of seven Boeing 777 aircraft into an all-cargo configuration in May.
