There are many sub types, but the Pemco is an STC modified airplane. Basically you can make any non-freighter into a B757-200 Freighter

The Pemco design was never completed and thus they have no STC. Although they have some marketing literature available they do not have an active program nor any plans to resume their 757 program anytime soon as they have a focus on 737s.

There are three conversion programs:

Alcoa-SIE with STC imminently pending
Precision Conversions with STC in hand
ST Aero with planned program launch and STC application for year's end

ST Aero licensed the Boeing SF design (for the DHL/EAT fleets) but is redesigning the conversion to be more like a factory freighter and thus the new STC.

Any reason.

Pls elaborate.Are you saying more like the PF.
Also Why was there only one Combi by Royal Nepal.Why was it needed.No more were built.

Mel,
I believe Pemco never got their 757 program going because it was years before the airframes were the right age and available at a price where the conversion made sense (lease rate would match market need versus cost to buy and convert). Now they focus on the 737.

ST Aero is taking the Boeing SF design with a net and 14.5 pallets and redesigning to have 15 full pallets like the PF. The 15 pallet design is a much more complex modification and more costly to perform. However, it can be done as show by Precision Conversions.

I am not to sure about the lack of other 757 combi's.

So the redesign is in the Main deck only to cover the Pallet location/size 14.5 to 15.
No change to the Doors.Is that because of the Work involved thru reinforcements.

Is that the one that Bill Wagner and his buddies did at Tramco (BF Goodrich in Everett)?

Mel,
The 15 pallet design means that they must completely remove and re-skin over the L1/R1 and L4/R4 doors and add a new, PF-style crew entry door further forward.

Tod,
Yes, that's the one.
