 - March 31, 2008, 11:51 AM

Freight Feeder Aircraft supplier Metalcraft Technologies restarted production of detail parts for the FF5000 fuselage in February. The first detail parts are formed exterior skins and the machined floor-section keel beams. The FF5000 is a larger version of the original Freight Feeder design and can fit standard M-1-size cargo containers as well as standard-size pallets. The FF5000 is designed to deliver freight containers to regional markets in smaller communities. In addition to the unpressurized FF5000, Freight Feeder’s technology includes a patented freight-tracking system.
