Apr 19, 2017: Aeronautical Engineers (AEI) has selected Jacksonville, Florida based Flightstar Aircraft Services as an Authorised Conversion Centre.
AEI currently has four active Authorised Conversion Centres worldwide, which include Commercial Jet, in Miami, Florida, Commercial Jet Services in Dothan, Alabama, KF Aerospace in Kelowna, B.C. Canada and Boeing Shanghai Aviation Services, in Shanghai, PRC. In all, offering a total of 11 to 13 conversion lines for AEI at any one time.
The current success of AEI’s passenger-to-freighter conversion products, which include the B737-400SF, MD80SF, CRJ200 SF and will soon include the B737-800SF, require that additional conversion capacity be added to handle the present market demand.
Flightstar will set up one line of passenger-to-freighter conversions at its Jacksonville facility for AEI beginning in May of this year with the commencement of a B737-400SF freighter conversion which is being modified for San Francisco based Vx Capital Partners.
