AEI inducts B737-400SF Freighter conversion for Kalitta Charters
May 16, 2017: Aeronautical Engineers (AEI) has inducted the third 11 pallet position B737-400SF freighter conversion for Kalitta Charters. The aircraft (MSN 25849) arrived at Commercial Jet’s Miami, FL facility and will commence modification.
The completed freighter will be re-delivered to Kalitta in the beginning of September.
The AEI B737-400SF is the only passenger to freighter conversion product that offers operators ten full height 88” x 125” container positions. This unique capability is achievable due to AEI’s Main Deck Cargo Door location which is approximately 40” further back than the competition. The additional container position increases AEI’s volumetric carrying capability by 10 percent which places the freighter in a class by itself.
AEI’s B737-400SF shall provide Kalitta with a highly flexible Ancra CLS capable of carrying multiple ULD’s including: (10) 88”x125” ULDs in P1 to P10 or (10) 96”x125” in P1 to P10 and (1) 53”x88”x64” Pallet or AEP/AEH or 60.4”x 61.5” AKE/LD3 or 61.5”x88”x56”H and 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.
