Precision Aircraft Solutions has signed an agreement with Canadian all-cargo airline, Cargojet, to perform the world’s first 15-pallet passenger-to-freighter conversion of a winglet-modified B757- 200 aircraft. The converted aircraft will fly long-distance routes in Canada, thereby benefitting from the fuel savings made possible by the winglets. Cargojet is Canada’s leading provider of timesensitive overnight air cargo services and carries over 340,200 kg of cargo each business night.

“By showing compatibility of the Precision modification with wingletmodified passenger aircraft, we have provided another option for our customers and opened up more feedstock for our programme,” said Gary Warner, Precision president. “Owners of winglet-modified aircraft can now consider extending the life of their assets as a Precision freighter.” The conversion began in June with redelivery later this year, and will take place in Goodyear, Ariz., at the facility of AeroTurbine, a Precision partner.
