It has been a good week for Precision Aircraft Solutions.

In the last seven days the US-based passenger-to-freighter conversion specialist redelivered four freighter-converted 757-200PCFs, converted at four different MROs, to three different customers.

And not only was it a record week, but, if our count is correct, the third of those four redeliveries marked Precision’s fiftieth 757 conversion. Given the current demand for 757 freighters, we expect that Precision’s second fifty conversions will roll out in about one-third the time it took for the first fifty.

The four redeliveries included two for SF Airlines (the air arm of China-based SF Express), one for DHL Express, and one for US-based lessor Vx Capital Partners.

SF Airlines is just one of the carriers scrambling for more capacity to support China’s booming e-commerce market. This is SF’s most recent addition, a 757-200PCF fresh out of the paintshop after conversion by Precision Aircraft Solutions at the Aeroturbine facility in Goodyear (GYR).

In addition to the four MRO facilities that converted the above aircraft, Precision also uses the HAECO facility in Xiamen, China (XMN), and has a total of seven lines available at the five facilities. And to provide some insight into the current demand for Precision’s 757-200PCF, the company has nine aircraft currently inducted for conversion — which means that not only are all seven lines going full speed, but that aircraft are parked outside the doors, waiting their turn.
