Aeronautical Engineers, Inc. (AEI) announced that the company has successfully delivered a third 11 pallet position B737-400SF to Switzerland based, FARNAIR Group. The aircraft is planned to join the South East Asia K-Mile operation as the second aircraft. Built in 1998, the aircraft (MSN 29000) was converted at Commercial Jet’s Dothan, Alabama facility and was delivered on November 28th, 2014. This is the third conversion of a four aircraft agreement.
The AEI B737-400SF is the only passenger to freighter conversion product that offers operators ten full height 88” x 125” container positions. This unique capability is achievable due to AEI’s Main Deck Cargo Door location, which is approximately 40” further back than the competition. The additional container position increases AEI’s volumetric carrying capability by 10% which places the freighter in a class by itself.
AEI’s B737-400SF will provide FARNAIR with a Main Deck capable of carrying multiple ULD’s including:
· (10) 88”x125” or (10) 88”x108” full time
· The configuration noted above includes the following configuration in P11
(1) 53”x88”x64” Pallet or AEP/AEH or 60.4”x61.5” AKE/LD3 or 61.5”x88”x56”H AYY
This unique flexibility has been designed by AEI to allow the operator to immediately adapt to multiple ULD configurations at a moment’s notice. When combined with proven reliability, the AEI Converted B737-400SF will allow FARNAIR to keep their aircraft – “In the air, generating revenue”.
