ST Aerospace has announced that it has obtained two Supplemental Type Certificates (STCs) for its Boeing 757-200SF passenger-to-freighter (PTF) conversion programme from the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) and Transport Canada respectively. Developed based on ST Aerospace’s existing US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) approved STC, these two STCs allow ST Aerospace to incorporate major engineering changes and convert a China-registered or Canada-registered B757-200 aircraft from a passengercarrying configuration to a cargo aircraft. ST Aerospace’s FAA approved B757- 200 PTF STC is the world’s only STC developed based on Boeing’s licensed passenger and freighter data, the Singaporebased MRO company said. “The approval of these two STCs is most timely. With the world’s air cargo traffic expected to see strong growth over the next two decades, we are well positioned to offer our 757 PTF programme to customers in more locations. For customers with operational requirements in China and Canada especially, our STCs, global MRO network of facilities and strong conversion track record offer them a complete solution,” said ST Aerospace president Chang Cheow Teck. ST Aerospace is a PTF Centre of Excellence and has performed PTF conversions for the Boeing 727, 757-200, 767-300, DC10, MD10 and MD11 aircraft.
