GECAS launches AEI’s 737-800NG passenger-to-freighter conversion

GE Capital Aviation Services (GECAS) is forging ahead with its inaugural 737-800NG passenger-to-freighter conversion with Miami-based Aeronautical Engineers, Inc. (AEI), which was announced at the Paris Air Show in June 2015.

The 1999 vintage 737-800, previously operated by Corendon Airlines, was delivered to AEI in Miami on May 5. The conversion and the subsequent certification process are scheduled to take approximately a year. This will be AEI’s first 737-800NG freighter conversion.
