Aeronautical Engineers (AEI) has signed a contract with Automatic to provide the company with two 11 pallet position B737-400SF freighter conversions.
The first aircraft, built in 1993 is standard gross weight and will be modified by Commercial Jet’s Miami facility. The second aircraft built in 1993 is standard gross weight and is also being modified at the same facility.
The freighters will be re-delivered to Automatic in September 2016 and January 2017, respectively.
AEI says its B737-400SF is the only passenger to freighter conversion product that offers operators ten full height 88” x 125” container positions and the capability is achievable due to AEI’s Main Deck Cargo Door location which is approximately 40” further back than the competition.
