Precision Aircraft Solutions has received FAA approval for a new maximum zero fuel weight (MZFW) increase on both winglet- and non-winglet-equipped Precision Conversions freighters.

The most recent upgrade authorisation allows Precision to further increase MZFW as high as 200,000 lbs. (90,718 kg) to 12,000 lbs. (5,443 kg) over the OEM highest certificated MZFW for Rolls-Royce- and Pratt & Whitney-powered 757s. This translates to gross structural payloads of up to 84,000 lbs. (38,101 kg) for Rolls-Royce PCF variants and 82,000 lbs. (37,194 kg) for Pratt-powered PCF variants, line number 210+.

“Precision Aircraft Solutions is proud to have engineered a flight-efficient conversion that will extend the life of an entire generation of winglet-equipped 757s,” said Gary Warner, Precision president.
