Aeronautical Engineers, Inc (AEI) has announced that the third 11 pallet position 737-400SF freighter (MSN 25849) for Kalitta Charters has arrived at Commercial Jet’s Miami, FL, facility for commence modification. The aircraft will be re-delivered at the beginning of September.


AFI KLM E&M and Malaysia Airlines have extended a long-running Boeing 737-800 component support contract.

Ameco Chengdu delivered a converted Boeing 757 aircraft to China Postal Airlines in the first half of May. This is the sixth Boeing 757 aircraft delivered by Ameco Chengdu Branch since 2014, although the first for China Postal, with another three 757s in progress.

Associated Air Center (AAC) recently redelivered a VVIP Airbus A319 and a VIP Boeing 737-500.


The A319 was delivered following cabin refurbishment and scheduled maintenance for a repeat, long-time Asian customer. AAC designed the new look cabin along with entertainment and seating upgrades.


The installation included a new Rockwell Collins Venue cabin management and entertainment system. AAC technicians also installed ten new Precision Aircraft Components single seats with complete seat amenities including lumbar, heat, full electric operation and retractable armrests. The project also included the installation of a U-shaped divan that can be operated electronically to both daybed and full queen bed positions. An additional three-place divan was installed that can sleep two passengers.


Scheduled aircraft maintenance included Service Bulletins/Airworthiness Directives compliance and overhaul of the auxiliary power unit. All services took place at the AAC facility, located in Dallas, Texas.


This aircraft was also fitted with a CTT Systems CAIR cabin-wide humidification system, installed via a FAA STC developed in conjunction with StandardAero’s Organization Delegation Authority team. In addition to the A319 installation, the new STC will apply and be available to CAIR cabin wide humidification systems on the rest of the Airbus A320 Family.


The US-based 737-500 project included removing a custom cabin from a 737-200 donor aircraft, including interface between the two airframes to address the differences between aircraft models.


The custom cabin installation included a new executive lavatory, fabricated by AAC technicians. Downtime included scheduled maintenance plus Corrosion Protection and Control Programs (CPCP) inspections, gear and flap overhauls and flight control removal/reinstallation to restore paint finish. The work was completed in only four months at AAC’s facility in Dallas Texas.
