GECAS will partner with Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) to launch a freighter conversion program for Boeing 777-300ER aircraft. The companies are moving towards the development of a Supplemental Type Certificate for the 777-300ERSF.
“We are excited to join with IAI on this program. Their proven experience, knowledge, and unique engineering skill and resources in passenger to freighter conversions—combined with our working relationship with IAI stretching back into the 1990’s—gives us the confidence to co-fund the STC Development and commit to the Program as the Launch Customer of the B777-300ERSF.”Richard Greener, Senior Vice President and Manager, GECAS Cargo
Under the terms of this agreement, GECAS placed firm commitments for fifteen aircraft alongside fifteen options.
