AAR Selected for New B767-200 Special Freighter Cargo Systems

WOOD DALE, Ill., /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX/ -- AAR (NYSE: AIR) announced today that the Company's cargo system division, AAR Cargo Systems has been selected by IAI / Bedek Aviation Group to design and manufacture the new 767-200 Special Freighter cargo loading systems.

Under the agreement, AAR will design and manufacture the cargo loading systems for five 767-200s for the Airborne Express freighter conversion program. This is the first aftermarket freighter conversion program for the 767-200 and marks the beginning of the 767 General Market Freighter.

"Working closely with IAI / Bedek Aviation Group and Airborne Express, AAR has developed new system features to make the 767 General Market Freighter a versatile and productive freighter aircraft," said AAR President and CEO, David P. Storch. "This new freighter will carry a wide variety of cargo containers with the ability to mix configurations. Its versatility coupled with the ability to interline the wide body freight containers greatly enhances the operational value of the new mid-range freighter".

The 767-200 / 300 General Market Freighter conversion program is expected to grow due to the number of 767 passenger aircraft fast becoming available for freighter conversion. AAR will deliver the first cargo loading system to IAI / Bedek Aviation Group in May 2003 with firm orders and options extending deliveries into 2005.
