Pax to Freighter conversions on ATR42 and ATR72 Aircraft: we ensure the continuing airworthiness

To support the ATR Aircraft Pax to Freighter (P2F) STCs, Bulk Freighter Conversion (BFC) and Large Cargo Door (LCD) owned by IPR Conversions (Switzerland) Ltd and inherited from the original manufacturer Alenia, PMV Groupe takes care of all aspects:

  • Management of the deviations found during the working party,
  • Design of structural repairs,
  • Design of changes for installation kit optimization,
  • Certification support (EASA/FAA/TCCA).

Last update: ATR72 Bulk Freighter Conversion – Validation under FAA STC ST11175IB

This STC equips the aircraft with a full class E cargo compartment, including smoke detection system, cargo liners, 9G intermediate nets as well as an improved floor load capacity.

This FAA validation will ease aircraft authority transfer, part of the aircraft redelivery process.
This validation thus allows aircraft owners saving time and cost during the transfer, since it avoids the involvement of a Designated Engineering Representative (DER).
We now offers a whole range of cargo conversion fully certified by EASA, and validated by both FAA & TCCA, through the STC owned by IPR Conversions (Switzerland) Ltd.
