PEMCO redelivers first Longhao P2F converted 737
Dec 15, 2016: Pemco World Air Services (PEMCO) has redelivered its first B737-300 passenger-to-freighter converted aircraft to Guangdong Long Hao Aviation Group.
The Guangzhou-based Longhao Aviation Group has two more PEMCO-converted B737-300 aircraft in process with options for additional conversions to meet its expansion.
“We are delighted to see the first aircraft finish conversion and after various testing, the aircraft's performance has proved to succeed our demand for freight/cargo transportation,” said Zhao Jiguang, president, Longhao Aviation Group.
Longhao Aviation Group is a subsidiary of the Longhao Group, which is primarily focused on the investment and construction of highways, infrastructure and public works; aviation business; smarty city and environmental engineering; and media and culture. To assist the company’s aviation business expansion, Longhao Aviation Group chose PEMCO for their quality service, engineering strength, and post-delivery customer support.
“We look forward to assisting Longhao’s rapid expansion into the air cargo business,” said Mike Andrews, PEMCO director of conversion programmes.
PEMCO-converted aircraft make up 70 percent of China-based B737-300 and -400 fleets in service. The company has redelivered over 50 300 and 400 converted aircraft to Chinese operators since 2006, including the first B737-300 aircraft in China.
The B737-300 PEMCO-converted aircraft features nine pallet positions, up to 43,100 pounds of payload, 4,600 cubic feet of total volume, and a max range exceeding 2,000 miles.
PEMCO’s 60-plus customers select the company’s passenger-to-freighter conversion for its superior cargo door and system, superior operating functions, on-time turnaround, global product support, and a track record of 2 million hours of safe, reliable operation. PEMCO B737 freighter conversions are designed, certified, and supported using data obtained through a Boeing Data licensing agreement to ensure maximum performance and reliability.
