AEI wins contracts for two conversions with Pinnacle Partners

Aeronautical Engineers (AEI) has signed a contract to provide two CRJ200 SF freighter conversions to Pinnacle Partners.

The first CRJ200 (MSN 7421) will commence modification in November with redelivery scheduled for March 2018. The second CRJ200 will commence modification in December, with redelivery scheduled for April 2018.

Both freighter conversions will take place at Commercial Jet’s, Alabama facility, which is one of five authorised AEI Conversion Centers worldwide.

Pinnacle Partner chief executive officer, Alden Crowley says: “We are excited to add two AEI CRJ200 SF freighters to our portfolio.

“We believe the CRJ200 freighter is a great solution for short-haul freight operations and plan to acquire another two CRJ200 aircraft for cargo conversion in 2018.”

Prior to the first two CRJ200 SF aircraft entering regular revenue service, the freighters will be utilised by Another Joy Foundation to transport humanitarian aid from the USA to Puerto Rico, to help those in need affected by hurricane Maria.

AEI currently has firm orders and commitments for over 45 CRJ200 SF freighter conversions.
