AAR Launches New Rotorcraft Services Business

AAR, a global aerospace and defense contractor that provides aviation services airlines, governments and OEMs, is now offering a broad range of aftermarket support services for helicopter operators, including parts sales, engineering, and total life-cycle support programs, under its new Rotorcraft Services business division.

With Rotorcraft Services, AAR leverages AAR Airlift’s experience operating and maintaining rotorcraft in expeditionary environments, as well as the Company’s aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) capabilities, global supply chain network and modification expertise to offer similar services to rotorcraft customers.

AAR’s Airlift Group has owned, operated and maintained its own fleet of fixed- and rotor-wing aircraft for more than 10 years.

In addition to benefiting from Airlift’s operations experience, rotor-wing operators can now access the full range of services that AAR provides to fixed-wing customers in more than 100 countries including parts sales and procurement; aircraft leasing and resale; aircraft evaluation; new and used parts sales; parting out of legacy aircraft; component repair; engineering services; aircraft modifications; field maintenance; and comprehensive support programs. This includes a new product line in its trading business focused on component sales, OEM distribution, repair management and asset trading for rotorcraft. Already underway through its Airinmar subsidiary, AAR manages component repair for CHC’s fleet of more than 200 helicopters.
