Air Inuit to be launch customer for Bombardier Q300 Freighter with large cargo door

Bombardier Commercial Aircraft and Air Inuit announced (01-Mar-2016) they are working together on a passenger-to-freighter conversion for the Q300 turboprop aircraft. The freighter will include a large cargo door. Air Inuit will be the launch customer for the conversion. In support of this conversion, a new Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) will be developed under license by a specialised third party entity. The converted Q300 aircraft is expected to have a cargo capacity of 12,500 lb with an optimised cargo door. The aircraft will accommodate palletised and free load cargo. Air Inuit currently operates a fleet of 25 aircraft that includes two Bombardier Q100 and 10 Q300 turboprops. It plans to operate three of the Q300 'Large Cargo Door' freighters.
