Aeronautical Engineers, Inc. (AEI) has inducted the third 11 pallet position B737-400SF freighter conversion for Kalitta Charters. The aircraft (MSN 25849) arrived at Commercial Jet’s Miami, FL facility and will commence modification today. The completed freighter will be re-delivered to Kalitta in the beginning of September.
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.Date: May 16, 2017
