Beaverton, OR., May 8th, 2023 – 321 Precision Conversions is pleased to announce the Civil Aviation Authority of Malaysia validated the A321-200PCF freighter conversion STC (ST02716SE). This certification further validates the Precision design and enables the most fuel efficient A321-200 freighter conversion to operate in Malaysia. Raya Airways will be the first A321-200PCF in the region with multiple aircraft.
Zach Young, Director of Sales and Marketing at 321 Precision Conversions, shares his enthusiasm about this milestone: “We are excited to continue expanding the certification of our A321-200PCF into Malaysia and beyond. The CAAM has determined that our A321 cargo conversion has met stringent certification standards.”
The fully supported A321-200PCF exceeds all expectations by providing (14) A-Code 88 x 125-inch main deck positions and (10) ULD positions in the lower hold when equipped. Capability is increased by decreasing the operating empty weight (OEW) rather than imposing costly weight upgrades. No permanent ballast installation in the aft main deck yields a lower fuel burn, lower carbon footprint, friendly CG, and higher standard payload. The 321 Precision Conversions STC is applicable to both V2500 and CFM engine variants and multiple thrust ratings.
321 Precision Conversions is a joint venture between Aircraft Transport Services Group (ATSG) and Precision Aircraft Solutions (PAS) to deliver the A321-200PCF freighter conversion across the globe. Precision Aircraft Solutions set the global standard for B757 conversions and continues its legacy of industry-leading passenger-to-freighter cargo conversions with the A321.
