BANGOR, Maine – C&L Aviation Group has signed an agreement to market Sweden-based Täby Air Maintenance’s (TAM’s) Saab 340B Cargo Conversions in the Americas. As part of the agreement, C&L is also an approved sales and installation center. TAM’s EASA- and FAA-approved cargo conversion STC is well-proven and provides a highly cost-effective way to convert this fuel-efficient passenger aircraft into a profitable freighter, capable of carrying 1,280 cu ft of cargo.
“I am just as pleased as I am thrilled by this partner agreement with C&L,” says Pär Gulle, TAM CEO. “With TAM located in Sweden, having very good relations to the manufacturer Saab, and well-known C&L strategically located on the US east coast, I see the combined strength of our respective organizations gives us a unique opportunity to serve the global market need for premium cargo conversions of the vast Saab 340-fleet.”
This alliance has TAM marketing the conversion in Europe and C&L marketing the conversion in the Americas. Combined, they provide a globally uniform cargo solution for the Saab 340 fleet.
“We researched the available options in the market, and found working with TAM made perfect sense, not only because of the quality of the conversion kit, but because working with a consistent model throughout the world helps to preserve the integrity and value of the Saab fleet,” said C&L CEO Chris Kilgour.
