AYY Container

The AYY container is a half size AAY container for use in narrow-body freighter aircraft and due to its half-size, in some cases referred to as Demi container.

Two AYY (Demi) containers placed side by side can be handled as a conventional full contour container while providing operators the ability to easily split loads by final destination in order to reduce sorting time.

Placing a purpose made PVC cover over or shrink-wrapping the entire container from the bottom up in an overlapping manner will provide weather protection as well as prevent small pieces from becoming dislodged from the canvas door net, especially at the bottom where the webbing of the net is larger. If a PVC cover is made use of, shrink-wrap approximately two feet up from the bottom of the container. This procedure must be used when smaller pieces of cargo can become dislodged from the canvas door net.

PAJ Airline Pallet

The PAJ airline pallet is a full size aluminum pallet for use in a variety of aircraft. Due to the varying types of aircraft it may have contour restrictions placed on the amount and type of cargo loaded.
Drape a plastic tarp (or shrink-wrap) over the entire cargo load before netting. This will provide weather protection as well as prevent small pieces from becoming dislodged from the net, especially at the bottom of the net where the webbing of the net is larger. If necessary, place a plastic tarp under the cargo and tuck the ends of the tarp into the cargo approximately two feet up from the bottom. This will provide additional weather protection and help restrain smaller pieces loaded at the bottom. This procedure must be used when smaller pieces of cargo can become dislodged from the net.

  • Maximum contour dimensions for B737 – 300 SF aircraft is;
    193cm (h) x 100cm (w) x 206cm (l).
    100cm (h) x 300cm (w) x 206cm (l).
  • Only two (2) maximum dimensions can be used at any given time, as the third dimension will then be limited by the aircraft contours.
  • Maximum dimensions for a consolidated skid: 100cm x 75cm x 110cm
  • The numbers of items which reach the maximum dimensions and consolidated skids are further limited by the quantity received, as well as the time that they are received as we have limited space available to accommodate these. Furthermore, all consolidated skids must be stackable.
  • Cargo received that reaches the maximum dimension guidelines as above is accepted only on a trial basis.
