Precision Aircraft Solutions


yellow square Precision Aircraft Solutions is an international leader in aircraft modification, based in Portland, Oregon, USA.

We earned our stripes as Precision Conversions, converting 757-200 passenger aircraft to freighter and combi configurations for the likes of SF Airlines, DHL, Air China Cargo, and ATI. Today Precision offers even more cutting-edge resources to leverage assets and raise returns. Not only do we source and convert aircraft, we also engineer, integrate, design, certify, and support every repair, change, and innovation desired. From structures to systems, kitting to conversions, inside the plane or out — if it can be done, we can do it.

The Precision Conversions 757-200PCF freighter offers the lowest Basic Empty Weight (BEW) and Lowest Operating Empty Weight (OEW)* of any 757-200 freighter on the market today.

Total In-Service Fleet
Average OEW = Approx. 116,000 lbs. (52,616 kg)
*To obtain OEW: Add 500 lbs. (226 kg) to BEW for crew weight

Adjusted Baseline Empty Weight of
In-Service PW Fleet (BEW) = 115,300 lbs. (52,299 kg)

Adjusted Baseline Weight of
In-Service RR Fleet (BEW) = 115,600 lbs. (52,435 kg)

*Adjusted Baseline Weight does not include crew. Adjusted Baseline Weight represents aircraft variations, such as ETOPS


In early 2013, Precision introduced its combi configuration, the 757-200PCC, which offers 10 full cargo positions and seating for 54 passengers. It is the world’s first-certified 757-200 combi variant with winglets. Business class, coach, and cabin seating options are also available.
