AAR Receives FAA Approval for 767-300 Interior Modifications

Integrated engineering services from top MRO facilitate on-time STCs

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – AAR (NYSE: AIR) has received design approval from the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to perform custom interior modifications for Boeing 767-300 aircraft operated by a major U.S. based international airline.

AAR Engineering Services’ design modification increases the aircraft’s passenger count and includes the installation of flatbed seats, new in-flight entertainment systems and a lower lobe crew rest, as well as the replacement of galleys. AAR managed the processes to obtain the FAA Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) on the customer’s behalf and provided custom modification kits produced at AAR Aircraft Services in Indianapolis. AAR Engineering Services offered additional value by mitigating risks associated with design, scheduling and implementation of the STC, acting as a single point of contact overseeing integrated engineering, program management and supply chain management services.

“It’s critically important to return aircraft to revenue service as soon as possible and with this complex program, we came in ahead of schedule for the customer,” said Ron Eaton, Vice President, AAR Engineering Services. “We provided timely and innovative design services, managed the approval process and streamlined numerous capabilities to complete the project while staying on budget.”

AAR Engineering Services provides a wide range of high-quality, cost-effective technical services, specializing in interior reconfigurations, structural and systems modifications, and avionics upgrades requiring FAA or other regulatory agency approvals.

AAR offers customers turnkey aircraft support solutions as part of its “1MRO” approach. The Company leverages diverse maintenance, engineering and technical capabilities to offer airlines customized, integrated services that lower costs, increase asset availability and ensure high levels of quality, safety and service. AAR provides MRO services from facilities in Indianapolis, Duluth, Miami, Oklahoma City and Hot Springs, Arkansas.

AAR was recently named the Best Aircraft Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) Provider in the Americas, Aircraft Parts Supplier of the Year and was ranked among the Top Five MROs in surveys of airline executives and industry professionals.
