AEI to provide AerCaribe with B737-400SF Freighter Conversion

Aeronautical Engineers, Inc. (AEI) has announced the company has signed a contract to provide Columbian-based AerCaribe S.A. with a B737-400SF freighter conversion. The aircraft (MSN 24130) is onsite and will commence modification today. All modification touch labor will be performed by Commercial Jet at their Dothan, Alabama facility. This freighter conversion represents the second AEI freighter for AerCaribe.

AEI’s B737-400SF shall provide AerCaribe with a highly flexible Ancra CLS capable of carrying multiple ULD’s including:

  • (10) 88”x125” ULDs in P1 to P10 or
  • (8) 96”x125” in P1 to P10 and
  • (1) 53”x88”x64” Pallet or AEP/AEH or 60.4”x61.5” AKE/LD3 or 61.5”x88”x56”H AYY in P11

This unique flexibility has been designed by AEI to allow cargo operators to immediately adapt to multiple ULD configurations at a moment’s notice.  When combined with proven reliability, the AEI Converted B737-400SF will allow AerCaribe to keep their aircraft – “In the air, generating revenue”.
