Vallair orders three B737 freighter conversions from AEI

US-based Aeronautical Engineers Inc. (AEI) has signed a contract with Luxembourg based Vallair to provide three B737-400SF passenger to freighter conversions.
Vallair is a player in the aviation asset management business, specialising in the acquisition of "end of life" Airbus A320, Boeing 737 and ATR aircraft.
On its website, Vallair states that it "provides solutions for aircraft and engine trading and leasing, spare parts sales and inventory management, cargo conversions and commercial aircraft disassembly and recycling".
The first of the three AEI aircraft will begin modification this month, and the remaining two conversions will follow in June and September of 2017. All three aircraft will be modified at Commercial Jet’s Dothan, Alabama facility.
The AEI B737-400SF is the only passenger to freighter conversion product that offers operators ten full height 88 x 125 inches container positions, achievable due to AEI’s main deck cargo door location which is approximately 40 inches further back than the competition.
The additional container position increases AEI’s volumetric carrying capability by 10%.
