Aeronautical Engineers, Inc. (AEI) has signed a contract with aircraft leasing company, Automatic, to provide the company an additional B737-400SF freighter.
Earlier this year AEI celebrated the delivery of its 100th B737-400SF freighter conversion, with the company saying orders for the conversion platform remain strong.
The Automatic B737-400 commenced modification yesterday and will be re-delivered in early March 2019. The completed B737-400SF will be operated by UK-based Titan Airways and represents the airline’s second -400 series freighter.
Commercial Jet’s Dothan, Alabama facility is handling the modification touch-labour and maintenance requirements for the aircraft.
AEI’s B737-400SF will provide Automatic with a flexible Ancra CLS capable of carrying multiple ULD’s including:
• (10) 88”x125” ULDs in P1 to P10 or
• (8) 96”x125” in P1 to P10 and
• (1) 53”x88”x64” Pallet or AEP/AEH or 60.4”x61.5” AKE/LD3 or 61.5”x88”x56”H AYY in P11
“This unique flexibility has been designed by AEI to allow cargo operators to immediately adapt to multiple ULD configurations at a moment’s notice,” AEI says.
Automatic is a commercial aircraft leasing, sales and trading specialist, headquartered in the US with international offices in Hamburg, Germany.
