AAR, a provider of aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services to commercial airlines announced it has passed the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) certification approval process for a new aircraft maintenance facility in Duluth, MN. AAR currently maintains MRO facilities in Indianapolis, Oklahoma City, Miami and Hot Springs, Arkansas.

“The Duluth facility is designed to be efficient and scalable, enabling us to start with a single line of maintenance and quickly expand to accommodate additional work,” said Timothy J. Romenesko, President and Chief Operating Officer of AAR CORP.

AAR expects the 188,000-square-foot facility to be operational by December 2012 and anticipates that it will be running at full capacity within a year. AAR has already begun hiring in Duluth and has immediate openings for additional aviation maintenance technicians (AMTs).

“We appreciate the tremendous collaboration of the FAA, Duluth Airport Authority, local officials and economic development teams for their assistance in securing our regulatory approval and preparing the facility for operations,” Romenesko continued.

AAR provides a wide range of products and services to the commercial aviation, government and defense industries, with sales of more than $2 billion. Aircraft MRO represents approximately 20 percent of AAR’s overall business.
