AAR to support RNLAF Chinooks
AAR will support the Royal Netherlands Air Force (RNLAF) CH-47 Chinook fleet under a contract announced on 9 July.
The contract will see AAR perform maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) of the Chinook for Logistics Centre Woensdrecht over a four year period.
Eric Bron, AAR general manager of component repair, said: ‘AAR has been a proud and trusted partner of the RNLAF on the F-16 platform for more than 25 years.
‘This step expanding our MRO services to the CH-47 Chinook platform reflects our strong relationship, dedication to exceeding customer expectations and shared core values with the RNLAF. We deliver tailored services and capabilities based on commercial best practices and our customers’ unique needs to produce the highest quality work and cost savings.’
