WOOD DALE, Ill., /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- AAR (NYSE: AIR) announced today that it has been awarded a five-year contract by the U.S. Army for the repair and overhaul of a key control component on the CH-47 (Chinook) helicopter, valued at $25 million.

"AAR is very proud to support the U.S. Army and the CH-47 Chinook Helicopter program," said Timothy J. Romenesko, AAR's President and Chief Operating Officer.
