Flightstar chosen as AEI authorised conversion centre


Aeronautical Engineers (AEI) has selected Jacksonville-based Flightstar Aircraft Services as an Authorized Conversion Center.

AEI says demand for its passenger-to-freighter conversion products including the Boeing 737-400SF, MD80SF, CRJ200SF and soon the B737-800SF require that additional capacity is added.

Flightstar was chosen for its experience in passenger-to-freighter modifications, in addition to maintenance services, and will set up one line of conversions with work starting on a 737-400SF for Vx Capital Partners.

AEI has four authorised centres, Commercial Jet in Miami, Commercial Jet Services in Dothan, Alabama, KF Aerospace in Kelowna, British Columbia and Boeing Shanghai Aviation Services in Shanghai, offering 11 to 13 conversion lines at any one time.
