BEAVERTON, Ore. (January 14, 2015) – Precision Aircraft Solutions has begun conversion of the first B757-200PCF aircraft for Asia Pacific Airlines.
Said President of Asia Pacific Airlines Mike Quinn: “Asia Pacific had very specific needs for our operating area. We not only had to have Pratt & Whitney engines and Boeing APB winglets installed, but we also had to have an aircraft that could be certified for 180 minutes ETOPS in order to cover the long distances we fly over the Pacific. The Precision team was an absolute pleasure to work with in putting this unique aircraft together. Their STC was flexible enough to handle all of our requirements.”
Asia Pacific Airlines currently operates a fleet of three Boeing 727 freighters in the western and southern Pacific areas, carrying primarily the U.S. mail and fresh tuna for the Japanese and U.S. markets.
“We are extremely pleased to provide Asia Pacific Airlines with a high-performance Precision product that is backed by global customer support,” Precision President Gary Warner stated.
The conversion of B757-200PCF, serial 27203, is underway at the AeroTurbine MRO facility in Goodyear, Ariz.
