AAR’s Telair delivers cargo center line restraint system to Air France

Telair International, a subsidiary of U.S.-based AAR CORP., has delivered two of its advanced centerline restraint systems to Air France to be used on the airlines Boeing 747-400 ERF aircraft.

Telairs system uses tie-down locations in the aircraft floor as well as cargo system components to secure centerline positioning of heavy or outsized cargo without strapping down the load. The system allows positioning and restraint of 10-foot, 16-foot or 20-foot pallets at the aircrafts center line to transfer loads of up to 31.250 lbs.

Eliminating the strapping down function saves time on the ground during loading and unloading, and up to 50 percent of space inside the hold.

Telair President Axel Hauner said there has been a renewed interest in the product. The concept was introduced on the Boeing 747-400BCF and is now certified for use on the Boeing 747-400F/ERF platform.

It increases the volumetric capacity of the aircraft during flights where heavy loads are being transported,î Hauner said. It also eliminates extra aircraft downtime while providing a secure means of transport.

The systems installed at the end of July on two Air France B747-400ERF freighter aircraft immediately entered revenue service and enabled us to significantly improve the carrying possibilities of heavy loads,î said Jean Yves Chaumet, Vice President, Operations and Logistics, Air France Cargo.

Telair International has served the airline industry for more than 40 years, with facilities on four continents. Today, AAR with Telair is the premiere one-stop-shop for the design and manufacture of advanced cargo handling systems and aftermarket services for the worlds airlines and OEMs.
