IAI’s Bedek Aviation Group and ATSG celebrated 70 full freighter conversions

IAI’s Bedek Aviation group has concluded the 70th full freighter conversion for Air Transport Services Group.

Over the past 25 years the cooperation of the two companies unfolded to encompass a major part of the global P2F conversions market. Bedek performed DC-8 short-to-long duct pylon modifications and JT8 engine overhauls and QEC components and Bedek participated in the conversion program of B767-200 Passenger-to-Package-Freighter configuration, which was followed by the 767-200BDSF Passenger-to-Special-Freighter (SF) conversion program.

In 2009 Bedek started the B767-300BDSF conversion program, in partnership with Mitsui of Japan, under which over 60 aircraft have already been converted – most of them for ATSG, with the 767-300BDSF conversion program continuing at full steam ahead.
