Aircraft of the Month: Boeing 767-200ER

The Boeing 767-200ER is a state-of-the-art aircraft used for both passenger and cargo service. This mid-size, twin-engine jet was Boeing’s first wide-body twinjet and its first airliner built with a two-crew glass cockpit.

The 767 is a clean and fuel-efficient aircraft offering the lowest operating cost per trip of any wide-body aircraft. The wings are thicker, longer and less swept that the wings of earlier Boeing jetliners, providing excellent take-off performance and fuel economy.

Cargojet, a Canadian-based air cargo airline, was the first Canadian air cargo operator to introduce this aircraft to their fleet. Its 767-200ER is capable of carrying a structural payload of up to 100,000 pounds utilizing 19 upper deck positions, as well as containerized and loose load lower cargo compartments.

Various types of cargo can be carried on the main deck including odd size cargo, live animals and perishable products.
