Our Purpose    

AAR Doing It Right featured in book

Right is not always easy. Right is not always patient. Right can be brave, demanding and even unique. So it was when women won the right to vote, when FedEx introduced next-day delivery or when Amazon reinvented the supply chain. Right is about setting a direction, believing in what you are doing and doing it well.                                                 

At AAR, we constantly search for the right thing to do for our customers, for our employees, for partners and for society. We wake up in the morning knowing we have to deliver and at the end of the day believe we did our best and encouraged to return the next day and do even better. We do not rest on our earlier accomplishments.

In 1955, American aviation was the new tech industry. AAR—a startup—was already supplying parts to the aviation industry—efficiently moving inventory, setting in motion our participation in America’s great boom.

Today, from Chicago to London to Singapore to Dubai to South Africa, our customers, employees and partners are helping us do what is right worldwide—and that includes being a vital link in commercial airline safety and supporting the U.S. military and its allies. AAR Aviation and Expeditionary Services divisions design technical, operational, logistic and financial solutions—doing it right and quickly delivering our customers safety, efficiencies and competitiveness. This lets them do what they do best—fly and connect the world.

Our Mission    

To be the best at designing and delivering technical, operational and financial solutions to enhance the efficiency and competitiveness of our commercial aviation and government customers.
