AAR Receives $74 Million Order for Specialized Shelters

WOOD DALE, Ill., /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- AAR (NYSE: AIR) announced today that it has received a $74 million order for shelters to be used by the U.S. Army. AAR has previously delivered more than 400 of these uniquely configured shelters as part of a 10-year ID/IQ contract.

AAR's 20-foot non-expandable ISO shelters will be outfitted by Kipper Tool to serve as mobile tool shops to support vehicle maintenance. The shelters will be manufactured over the next 12 months and the Army will begin taking delivery in December 2008.

"Today's high-mobility military units rely on equipment that can be deployed quickly and moved efficiently in theater," said Timothy J. Romenesko, President and Chief Operating Officer of AAR CORP. "We are proud that AAR shelters are part of several modernized combat support systems that are helping our Warfighters perform their duties more effectively under very demanding conditions."

The shelters are being manufactured by AAR Mobility Systems, which designs, builds, integrates, and supports rapid deployment equipment, expeditionary systems, and command and control systems for military customers and prime contractors. AAR's CSC-certified ISO shelters are rugged, versatile, shelters available in non-expandable and expandable variants that can be configured to house a wide range of applications and transported via air, land or sea.

During AAR's fiscal year 2008, 37 percent of AAR's business was in support of defense customers. AAR was also recently included among the Top 100 defense companies in the world according to an annual ranking published by DefenseNews in August 2008.

AAR is a leading provider of products and value-added services to the worldwide aerospace and defense industry. With facilities and sales locations around the world, AAR uses its close-to-the-customer business model to serve aviation and defense customers through four operating segments: Aviation Supply Chain; Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul; Structures and Systems and Aircraft Sales and Leasing.
