Aeronautical Engineers, Inc. (AEI) has completed its 600th freighter conversion, a 737-800 owned by GA Telesis (MSN 28235).

Roy Sandri, president of AEI, said: “We are thrilled to reach this milestone and couldn’t have made it without the dedication of our employees, the responsiveness of our vendor partners, and the trust earned from our customers.”

AEI has been designing, developing, and modifying narrowbody freighter aircraft for the air cargo industry since 1958.

Over the company’s 65-year history, AEI has provided the global market with dependable and flexible freighter products ranging from the DC6 and CV440 to hugely popular programmes, including the B727-200SF, B737-400SF, and B737-800SF.

Sandri added: “By consistently delivering robust and reliable freighter conversion products, AEI has grown to become the most widely recognised and respected independent conversion company in the industry.”

The 600th freighter conversion was modified by Commercial Jet Inc., AEI’s longest serving modification partner, at its Miami, Florida facility.

AEI also has multiple authorised AEI Conversion Centers located around the world to better serve its extensive list of global aircraft owners and operators.
