WOOD DALE, Ill., /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- AAR (NYSE: AIR), today announced that for the third consecutive year the Company was recognized by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for excellence in training and has received a Diamond Certificate of Excellence at each of its 12 FAA-certified repair stations.
