Jetstream Aviation Capital, LLC has announced the delivery of one Saab 340B(F) cargo aircraft to Castle Aviation of North Canton, Ohio on February 23, 2022.
The aircraft is the fifth of a multi-aircraft commitment between Jetstream and Castle and will be used for ad-hoc cargo charter and Castle’s scheduled operations on behalf of a major international logistics integrator.
Prior to delivery to Castle, it underwent significant maintenance including overall refurbishment, heavy inspections, painting and passenger-to-cargo conversion utilizing the TABY Aircraft Maintenance Saab 340 Supplemental Type Certificate process.
Castle Aviation, founded in 1984, is an FAA Part 135 air carrier.
In addition to the five Saab 340 cargo aircraft, Castle operates two additional Saab 340B aircraft, also leased from Jetstream, in a dedicated live animal transport configuration on behalf of Puppyspot Aviation.
In 2004, Castle was the launch customer and world’s first operator of the Saab 340A(F) converted freighter.
