AEI delivers 2nd B737- 400SF to Southern Air


Aeronautical Engineers, Inc. (AEI), has delivered the second of five B737- 400SF freighters to Southern Air who will operate for DHL Express in the Americas.

The second aircraft is a standard gross weight B737-400SF built in 1997 and was converted at Commercial Jet’s Dothan facility, which is one of five authorised AEI Conversion Centres worldwide.

The aircraft was sourced and financing provided through Strategic Air Finance LLC. This is AEI’s 10th of the anticipated 30+ freighters to be delivered in 2014.

The AEI B737-400SF is the only passenger to freighter conversion product that offers operators ten full height 88 x 125” container positions.

This unique capability is achievable due to AEI’s Main Deck Cargo Door location which is approximately 40” further back than the competition. The additional container position increases AEI’s volumetric carrying capability by 10 per cent which places the freighter in a class by itself, according to AEI.
