C&L Aviation Group completes world’s first Saab 340B+ cargo conversion

C&L Aviation Services, a C&L Aviation Group company, has completed a cargo conversion on a Saab 340B+ at the company’s Maine-based MRO facility.

This is the first B+ model in the world that has been converted for cargo operations.

The operator, which has taken possession of this aircraft, has signed an agreement with C&L to complete an additional 5 conversions in 2021 and 2022.

For the conversion, C&L utilized an EASA- and FAA-approved conversion kit provided by Sweden-based Täby Air Maintenance’s (TAM’s), C&L’s partner in conversions since the two companies signed an agreement in 2018. 

“We have been pleased with the way this first B+ model project has come together”, said C&L CEO Chris Kilgour.
