AAR to supply KC-46 palletised seating
AAR Mobility Systems will provide palletised seating systems for the US Air Force's (USAF's) KC-46 aircraft under a $5 million contract announced on 15 May.
The palletised seating accommodates passenger carriage in 10- or 12-seat configurations. The first order includes multiple sets of 10 and 12 passenger seat pallets to support the initial test and evaluation of the KC-46 programme.
The KC-46 Pegasus tanker can refuel all US, allied and coalition military aircraft compatible with international aerial refuelling procedures.

Orders under the contract will run through to 2019.
