AEI picks KF Aerospace as new freighter conversion centre


Aeronautical Engineers (AEI) has chosen KF Aerospace as an Authorized Conversion Center to provide additional capacity for passenger-to-freighter conversions.

KF Aerospace has major facilities in Kelowna, British Columbia and Hamilton, Ontario, and will start converting Boeing 737-400s from April this year.

AEI says the success of its 737-400SF, MD80SF, CRJ200SF and soon the 737-800SF when certified this year, required additional conversion capacity to handle demand.

It has three conversion centres including Commercial Jet in Miami, Florida, Commercial Jet Services in Dothan, Alabama and Boeing Shanghai Aviation Services in Shanghai, China, offering 11 to 13 conversion lines at any one time.
