Cargo Modifications

Transform ordinary aircraft into valuable business assets.

Cargo modifications from Avcon Industries address diverse needs, ranging from simple luggage-space increases (with things like cargo pods) to complete aircraft overhauls that allow hauling large amounts of palletized freight.

Our modifications can be used to:

  • Create a multi-function aircraft capable of both passenger and freighter transportation
  • Make room for specialized equipment or extra luggage, without affecting passenger experience
  • Prepare an aircraft for an air-ambulance role
  • Convert passenger aircraft into dedicated freighter configurations
  • Extend door width or install a top-hinged cargo door

These modifications enhance the utility of the aircraft, and can be used without impacting the passenger experience.

Falcon 20 Freighter Conversions

Using three STCs, Avcon can convert the Falcon 20 into a specialized platform for cargo and freight operations.

  • SA1473SW — increases the Cargo Door opening to 54″ x 74.5″ (137.2 x 189.2cm).
  • SA1467SW — modifies the interior with a flat floor, gill liner, window plugs, cargo barrier net, and smoke detection equipment.
  • SA1468SW — adds openable co-pilot escape windows (emergency exit).

All three STCs must be installed for the complete freighter conversion.
