AEI announces order from JMV aviation for an 11 pallet position 737-400SF freighter conversion

Aeronautical Engineers, Inc. (AEI) has signed a contract with Luxembourg based JMV Aviation to provide an 11 pallet position B737-400SF freighter conversion.  The aircraft (MSN 24959) is high gross weight and is being modified at Commercial Jet’s Dothan, Alabama facility. The freighter will be re-delivered to JMV Aviation in June of 2016 and then will be leased to the end customer, West Atlantic.

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.
