SF Airlines orders 5 B757 conversions from ST Aero


ST Aerospace and Chinese express carrier, SF Airlines, have signed a contract for five B757-200SF passengerto- freighter (PTF) conversions, with an option for three more aircraft. The B757-200SF freighters will have a 15-pallet cargo configuration with the first aircraft to be inducted in ST Aerospace’s facilities at Seletar Aerospace Park in early January 2014. Redelivery to SF Airlines is scheduled by the end of the third quarter in 2014. This contract award was included in the 4Q2013 orders announced in January.

The 15-pallet PTF solution is part of a 757-200SF development programme that ST Aerospace has launched in early 2013, for which it will be applying for Supplemental Type Certificates (STCs) from the Civil Aviation Administration of China, European Aviation Safety Agency, and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). This STC is based on Boeing’s production freighter as well as ST Aerospace’s existing FAA-approved 14-pallet STC for B757-200 PTF conversions, which is also the only STC developed, based on Boeing’s licensed passenger and freighter data.
