AAR Landing Gear Services Sdn. Bhd. Completes Certification Milestones

SINGAPORE /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- AAR (NYSE: AIR) announced today at Asian Aerospace 2006 that AAR Landing Gear Services Sdn. Bhd., a joint venture between AAR International, Inc. and Malaysian aircraft maintenance provider, AIROD Sdn. Bhd., received certification from the Malaysian Department of Civil Aviation (DCA) and passed its Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certification audit. Achieving these regulatory milestones enables the business to commence operations and begin serving customers in the Asia Pacific region from the new landing gear MRO facility based in Malaysia.

"Earning the DCA certification and passing the FAA certification audit are important regulatory milestones that serve as a testament to the hard work and collaboration of the AAR and AIROD team," said Mickey Cohen, Vice President of Operations and Engineering for AAR. "These milestones underscore AAR's commitment to regulatory compliance, operational excellence and airworthiness for our customers in the Asia Pacific region."

It is at Kuala Lumpur's Subang Airport that the new landing gear joint venture will maintain and overhaul commercial landing gear assemblies. AAR currently operates 13 certified repair stations around the world, including a landing gear facility based in Miami, Florida, U.S. that performs maintenance, repairs, overhauls and exchanges for Boeing, Airbus and a variety of other commercial and regional aircraft.

AAR maintains an excellent 54-year safety record and views these accomplishments as important parts of the Company's overall managed quality system. With these regulatory milestones complete, AAR Landing Gear Services Sdn. Bhd. is now focusing on obtaining its European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) certification and attracting new aviation customers in the fast-growing Asian marketplace.
