Aeronautical Engineers (AEI) is to provide Avmax with at least eight more CRJ200 freighter conversions after signing a letter of intent.
Avmax, which already owns 65 CRJ200s, intends to make the additional aircraft available for sale and/or wet/dry leasing options to operators around the world.
The AEI CRJ200 will provide Avmax with eight 61.5” x 88” container positions and a payload of up to 6.7 tonnes.
AEI senior vice president of sales and marketing, Robert Convey says: “Avmax truly understands the CRJ200 and we are delighted they acknowledge the value in the AEI CRJ200 SF. The synergy of these two companies will definitely be a benefit to all current and future CRJ200 SF operators.”
Avmax business development manager for the Americas, Rick Pollock adds: “This agreement with AEI provides us with a valuable option for maintaining the residual value of our fleet of CRJ200 series aircraft and further helps us expand our product offering by re-purposing the CRJ200.”
Avmax is based in Calgary, with two other Canadian offices in Vancouver and Winnipeg, Great Falls and Jacksonville in the USA, Nairobi in Kenya and N’Djamena in Chad.
