Aeronautical Engineers, Inc. (AEI) announced that it has delivered the third B737-400SF 11 pallet position to Sofia, Bulgaria based Cargoair. The aircraft, built in 1990 is a high gross weight B737-400 with only 30,000 cycles. Cargoair will operate the aircraft under a long-term contract for the European integrator, DHL. Cargoair currently operates a total of six AEI converted freighters – three B737-300SF and three B737-400SF. The aircraft was modified by Commercial Jet in Miami, Florida.

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.
