June 19th 2015: GECAS has launched a 737-800NG passenger-to-freighter conversion program, which will see the lessor convert up to 20 of its Boeing 737-800NG passenger aircraft to freighters. The first aircraft is scheduled for conversion in 2016 in order to earn FAA supplemental type certification (STC) in 2017 and subsequently enter service as a leased freighter. The conversion will be undertaken in China and US and carried out by AEI Aeronautical Engineers, Inc. and GECAS say the 737-800NG freighter will be the best-in-class aircraft for both replacement and growth in the narrow body freighter sector.”
