One Of Two Airplanes To Be Converted Into Passenger/Cargo
Precision Conversions' 757-200PCC Combi program is progressing
with the delivery of the conformity aircraft from Cargo Aircraft
Management. The 1994 Pratt & Whitney powered 757-200 has been
inducted at Flightstar Aircraft Services facility in Jacksonville,
FL, and is currently undergoing modification. The Combi award from
CAM is part of a two aircraft deal, both of which will include 10
full cargo positions and 48 passenger seats. Precision Conversions
is finalizing engineering and certification efforts and will soon
begin joint worldwide marketing, with CAM, for the 757-200PCC.
Steven Thomas, Precision Conversions President, said, "We are
delighted to team with CAM on the 757-200PCC." Additionally, "As a
valued customer and a current owner of the full 15 cargo position
757-200PCF freighter, CAM is already familiar with the high quality
and flight efficiency of our conversion."
Joe Hete, President and Chief Executive Officer of ATSG, said,
"We are excited to usher in a new aircraft to meet our customers'
continued demand for a modernized, fuel-efficient Combi." He added,
"The flight and fuel efficiency of the 757-200PCC makes the
aircraft a natural progression and perfect transition from our
current DC-8 Combi operations."
CAM intends to lease the first of two aircraft to Air Transport
International, LLC (ATI), an ATSG subsidiary, for operations
starting in the third quarter of 2012.
