The amplitude damping (AD) quantum channel is one of the models describing evolution of quantum states. The construction of quantum error correcting codes for the AD channel based on classical codes has been presented, and Shor et al. proposed a class of classical codes over F3 which are efficiently applicable to this construction. In this study, we expand Shor's construction to that over F7, and succeeded to construct an AD code that has better parameters than AD codes constructed by Shor et al.
