AAR awarded USAF landing gear contract

28th March 2017 - 16:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


AAR has received a $909 million contract from the US Air Force for work on the landing gear performance-based Logistics One programme, the company announced on 27 March.

Under the contract, AAR will provide supply chain management services, including purchasing, remanufacturing, distribution and inventory control to support all air force depot and field-level, foreign military sales, other services and contractor requisitions for all C-130, KC-135 and E-3 aircraft landing gear parts.

Repair work will be carried out at AAR's landing gear services facility in Miami, and inventory supply and management will be handled via AAR offices and warehouses in Wood Dale, Illinois and Ogden, Utah.

Nicholas Gross, senior vice president, government supply chain solutions, said: 'AAR is a strong fit to serve as prime on this contract because we can utilise our broad range of services and facilities across the country to not only overhaul landing gear for these three fleets but also procure and manage all the parts needed to keep them in service.'

The contract will run through to 2032.
