AEI signs agreement with Avmax for 8 CRJ200 SF freighter conversions
Feb 17, 2017: Aeronautical Engineers (AEI) has signed a Letter of Intent to provide a minimum of eight CRJ200 freighter conversions to Avmax who currently own 65 CRJ200 aircraft.
The LOI calls for the freighter conversions to commence in late 2017. As of right now, the modification for the conversions will be accomplished at Commercial Jet’s Dothan, Alabama facility.
Avmax intends to make the CRJ200 SF freighters available for sale and/or wet/dry leasing options to operators around the world.
“The synergy of these two companies will definitely be a benefit to all current and future CRJ200 SF operators,” said Robert Convey, senior vice president of Sales and Marketing, AEI.
As one of the world’s largest lessors of CRJ series aircraft, Avmax is uniquely positioned in the industry to provide tailored solutions to its customer base. Additionally, Avmax helps aircraft operators maximise the reliability of their operations with globally integrated services ranging from aircraft leasing and operations to component repairs and spares requirements.
Rick Pollock, Business Development manager for the Americas, Avmax, said, “This agreement with AEI provides us with a valuable option for maintaining the residual value of our fleet of CRJ200 series aircraft and further helps us expand our product offering by re-purposing the CRJ200.”
The AEI CRJ200 SF shall provide Avmax with an Ancra CLS capable of carrying: (8) 61.5” x 88” Containers/Pallets, P1 to P8.
