AEI announces order for three additional MD-83SF freighter conversions for Aeronaves

Aeronautical Engineers, Inc. (AEI) has signed a contract to provide Mexico-based Aeronaves T.S.M (TSM) with three additional MD-83SF freighter conversions. The first MD-83 aircraft (MSN 53293) will commence modification on December 11, followed by the second MD-83 (MSN 53292) commencing modification in February of 2018 and then followed by the third MD-83 (MSN 49941) starting modification in late April, 2018. All the AEI MD-83SF modifications will be performed by Commercial Jet’s Miami, Florida facility.

Last week, AEI delivered an MD-83SF to TSM. TSM represents the largest overall operator of AEI’s MD-80SF series freighters. Including this order, TSM will operate a total of ten AEI MD-80SF series freighters. Additionally, TSM currently has two AEI CRJ 200SF undergoing conversion at Commercial Jet’s Dothan, Alabama facility.
