ATR72-202 MSN 353 conversion from P2F at Springer Aerospace MRO

37 working days – this is the overall duration of ATR72-202 MSN 353 (a Summit Air aircraft) conversion from passenger to freighter at Springer Aerospace MRO (Canada), all inclusive (from aircraft arrival to aircraft modification approval).

ATR72-202 MSN 353 conversion from P2F at Springer Aerospace MRO

This performance has been made possible by an efficient teaming between the Design Organisation (PMV Engineering - EASA DOA ref# 21J.487), the production management held by STC owner (IPR Conversions - ACIA Aero Capital Group) and the MRO (Springer Aerospace).

Under the market growing demand for bulk freighter conversion on ATR aircraft, IPR Conversions and PMV Engineering jointly decided to provide the best possible service to cargo operator to optimize the conversion timeline.

To achieve this, IPR Conversions has fully re-organized the production activity with a dedicated hangar next to their facility where several installation kits are prepared and controlled well in advance of each conversion starting date. 
Complete kits are then delivered a few weeks in advance to the MRO for preparation of the conversion. 

Besides that, PMV Engineering has developed a fully comprehensive engineering package that split the conversion activities into very detailed task cards and associated drawings (electrical, mechanical, routing drawings), showing each single installation kit item purpose into the whole picture.

On top, a thorough tripartite program management has covered the whole project progress, preventing any potential work stoppage during the conversion
