BAGGAGE DOOR AND FREIGHT CARGO CONVERSIONS

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

Avcon modifications can:

  • Extend door width or install a top-hinged cargo door

  • 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

KING AIR DOOR / AIR AMBULANCE AND MODIFICATIONS

Properly configured, the Beechcraft King Air is a powerful and fuel-efficient cargo / freighter / air-ambulance platform. Popular cargo modifications for the King Air include:

Doors

  • Combined Cargo and Airstair Door (Identical to Factory Option)

  • Baggage Door (Door Width Expansion for Airstair Door)

Cargo Pods

  • 40 ft3(1.132m3) Cargo Pod

  • 15.5 ft3(0.432m3) “AeroPak” Cargo Pod

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

LEARJET DOOR / CARGO MODIFICATIONS

Avcon offers several cargo modifications for Learjets, including a 36” cabin door, tip-tank baggage compartments, maximum weight increases, cargo restraint systems and liners, and tailcone and fuselage cargo compartments (300 / 500 lbs capacity, respectively).

FALCON 20 FREIGHTER CONVERSIONS

Using three STCs, Avcon converts 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.
