AEI Signs Contract For Three B737-400Sf Freighter Conversions For ASL Aviation Group
Aeronautical Engineers, Inc. (AEI) is pleased to announce that the company has signed a deal with Dublin, Ireland based ASL Aviation Group to provide three (3) 11 pallet position B737-400SF freighter conversions. All three aircraft (MSN 25177: MSN 24917: MSN 26065) will be re-delivered to ASL in May, June and July of this year, respectively. The aircraft are being converted at Commercial Jet’s Miami, FL facility.
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 shall provide ASL Aviation Group with a highly flexible Ancra CLS capable of carrying multiple ULD’s including:
(10) 88”x125” ULDs in P1 to P10 or
(5) 88”x125” and (10) 61.5”x88” in P1 to P10 and
(1) 53″×88″×64″ Pallet or AEP/AEH or 60.4″×61.5″ AKE/LDS or 61.5″×88″×56″H AYY in P11
This unique flexibility has been designed by AEI to allow cargo operators to immediately adapt to multiple ULD configurations at a moment’s notice. When combined with proven reliability, the AEI Converted B737-400SF will allow ASL Aviation Group to keep their aircraft – “In the air, generating revenue”.
