A new MRO facility being built to serve next-generation aircraft is slated to open in 2016 in Rockford, IL.

“Through our 1MRO network, AAR provides our customers witha reliable, single source for not only maintenance and interior modifications but also for engineering services, aircraft components repair and overhaul, including landing gear and wheels and brakes.To earn the distinction as the best worldwide means a lot coming from our industry peers and customers who recognize our quality work and customer support across the globe,” said Dany Kleiman, Group Vice President for Repair and Engineering. “Our employees earned this honor because they work smart and hard every day to meet the highest standard of quality and safety for our customers.”

In addition to AAR’s 1MROnetwork with facilities in the United States and Europe, AAR provides customers worldwide with additional value through its supply chain services that include rotable parts pools; component repair management via Airinmar; consumable and expendable material support; and OEM parts distribution, as well as engine and aircraft parts supply.
