EFW receives FAA certification for A321 P2F conversion
Elbe Flugzeugwerke (EFW), the joint venture of ST Engineering and Airbus, has been awarded VSTC (ST04493NY) from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for the world’s first A321 freighter conversion. The VSTC validates the original EASA Supplemental Type Certificate (10071994) which was awarded to EFW in the first quarter of 2020.
The A321P2F is the first in its size category to offer containerized loading in both the main deck with 14 full container positions and lower deck with 10 container positions.
With a generous payload-range capability that can carry above 27 metric tonnes (roughly 60,000 lbs) over 2,300 nautical miles, the A321P2F is the best narrowbody freighter aircraft for express domestic and regional operations.
