AEI Receives Transport Canada STC Approval for B737-800SF

Aeronautical Engineers, Inc. (AEI) has announced Transport Canada Civil Aviation has approved AEI’s STC (ST02690LA) for the 12-pallet position B737-800SF freighter conversion.

AEI currently has FAA, CAAC, EASA and now TCCA approvals for its B737-800SF.

Last month AEI announced a contract to provide Chrono Aviation with a B737-800SF freighter conversion, which represents AEI’s first Canadian-based customer.

The AEI converted B737-800SF freighter offers a main deck payload of up to 52,700 lbs. (23,904 kg) and incorporates eleven full height 88” x 125” container positions, plus an additional position for an AEP/AEH.

The conversion also incorporates new floor beams aft of the wing box, a large 86” x 137” Main Cargo Door with a single vent door system.
