AAR Signs Landing Gear Overhaul Contract with SkyWest, Inc.
Agreement covers more than 400 CRJ aircraft
WOOD DALE, Illinois, February 6, 2017 –Global aerospace leader AAR (NYSE: AIR) has signed a three-year agreement to provide landing gear overhaul and exchange services for SkyWest, Inc.’s (NASDAQ: SKYW) operating carriers. The agreement, which covers landing gear assemblies and sub-assemblies on its fleet of more than 400 Bombardier CRJ aircraft, includes the option to extend to five years.

Together, SkyWest Airlines and ExpressJet Airlines operate nearly 3,000 daily flights carrying more than 56 million passengers annually through partnerships with United Airlines, Delta Air Lines, American Airlines and Alaska Airlines.
“We’re pleased to secure this agreement with a proven landing gear provider,” said Bill Dykes, SkyWest Airlines’ Vice President of Maintenance. “We know from experience that we can count on AAR as a reliable partner.”
