First Saab 2000 Cargo Conversion available to the market is under way

Örebro, Sweden: TAM, Täby Air Maintenance, is currently finalizing a new exciting project, converting the high-speed turboprop Saab 2000 regional airliner into cargo configuration. The conversion project is spearheaded in close collaboration with launch customer Jetstream Aviation Capital, LLC of Miami, FL.

The first aircraft, s/n 037, is now at TAM’s workshops at Örebro Airport. It is planned for conversion in first quarter of 2022 with scheduled completion including obtaining EASA and FAA approval by the end of March 2022.

Currently, the design work, lead by TAM’s Design Organization, and associated parts production is being managed at TAM’s facilities in Örebro, Sweden.

Based on our extensive experience of converting dozens of Saab 340 passenger aircraft to cargo configuration, we are very confident that we can meet any challenges to certify and convert that this larger and highly capable aircraft might offer, says Pär Gulle, TAM Managing Director.

The Saab 2000 Cargo will feature six net-divided loading bays, in addition to the current passenger aircraft cargo compartments, and all bays will meet 9G-approval requirements.

– The Saab 2000 in Cargo configuration will offer regional cargo operators the best overall performance, cargo weight and volume value proposition on the market, says Donald Kamenz, of Jetstream Aviation Capital.

Total cargo volume will be 55.4 m3 / 1960 cu ft, with a floor loading limit of 730 kg/m2 / 150 lb/sq ft and
a target max payload of 6,622 kg / 14,600 lbs. For operations under US FAR Part 135, the max payload will be limited to 3,402 kg / 7,500 lbs.
