Collins Aerospace Systems (Raytheon Technologies) has developed and implemented a multi-tiered solution enabling quick conversions of passenger aircraft into auxiliary freighters (Preighters).

The quick-turn conversion is available for any passenger aircraft type and can be completed in as few as seven days. The aircraft can easily be converted back to its original passenger configuration.

"The current situation has increased the need for airlines to deliver critical medical goods to locations around the globe," said Trevor Skelly, general manager, Integration Engineering for Collins Aerospace. "Collins Aerospace is committed to using our cabin conversion expertise to assist our customers and ensure the important work of aiding the world in the fight against this pandemic continues."

Through its Integration Engineering facility in Everett, Washington, Collins Aerospace has an extensive history in aircraft modifications and is able to offer Engineering Order (EO) solutions for rapid conversion as well as Supplemental Type Certification (STC) for cabin modifications to carry greater weight and various cargo types for longer-term flexibility.

Collins Aerospace' cabin reconfiguration solutions may be implemented with the FAA or EASA approvals.
