Aeronautical Engineers, Inc. (AEI) today announced the company has redelivered two B737-400SF freighter conversions to Vx Capital Partners (Vx). The first aircraft (MSN 28887) was modified by KF Aerospace and the second aircraft (MSN 25376) was modified by Flightstar Aircraft Services. In January of 2014, Vx contracted with AEI to provide their first AEI converted B737-400SF, and since then Vx has continuously augmented their fleet of B737-400SF freighter aircraft. These two aircraft represent the 18th and 19th B737-400SF freighters delivered to Vx, thus making Vx the largest leasing company customer for AEI.
Vx currently has two additional AEI B737-400SF freighter conversions undergoing modification, which will be redelivered in the beginning of the second quarter.
AEI’s B737-400SF shall provide Vx with a highly flexible Ancra CLS capable of carrying multiple ULD’s including:
(10) 88”x125” ULDs in P1 to P10 or
(8) 96”x125” in P1 to P10 and
(1) 53”x88”x64” Pallet or AEP/AEH or 60.4”x61.5” AKE/LD3 or 61.5”x88”x56”H AYY in P11
This unique flexibility has been designed by AEI to allow cargo operators to immediately adapt to multiple ULD configurations at a moment’s notice. When combined with proven reliability, the AEI Converted B737-400SF will allow Vx to keep their aircraft – “In the air, generating revenue”.
