The first ATP freighter to be converted by Romaero as part of a programme agreed between the Romanian commercial aerostructures manufacturer and BAE Systems Regional Aircraft has been rolled out at a ceremony at the company's Baneasa facility, near Bucharest.

Following customer acceptance, the aircraft (msn 2041) will be delivered shortly to West Air Sweden on a lease from Regional Aircraft.

A second aircraft for West Air Sweden is nearing completion, with two further freighter conversions also underway.

Romaero has been contracted by Regional Aircraft to build 10 Large Freight Door installation kits for the ATP and also to carry out repairs to a number of ATPs that were damaged in severe hailstorms. While in Romania a number of these aircraft will be converted to freighter configuration.

Romaero has been a partner to BAE SYSTEMS for many years, notably on the ROMBAC BAC One-Eleven licence production programme in the late 1970s and throughout the 1980s.
