AEI delivers Swiftair’s first 737-400SF

Aeronautical Engineers, Inc. (AEI) has delivered the first B737-400SF 11 pallet position freighter to Madrid, Spain based Swiftair S.A.  This delivery is the first of an eight (8) freighter conversion order.  The aircraft, built in 1991 (MSN 24438) is a high gross weight B737-400 and was converted at Commercial Jet’s Miami facility.  After a successful test flight the aircraft was painted at Commercial Jet’s dedicated paint facility in Dothan, Alabama.  The second B737-400SF conversion is also now complete and currently undergoing paint at Commercial Jet in Dothan, AL.

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.
