Posted 29 January 2013 · Add Comment

AAR - a provider of aircraft MRO and expeditionary airlift - has secured renewal of its support of US operations in Western and Central Africa.

The renewal is valued at approximately $9 million in revenue and will run through mid-June 2013. AAR Airlift supports this requirement as a subcontractor to ACADEMI, LLC.

The contract renewal calls for AAR to transport personnel and supplies using two fixed-wing aircraft to support US Army Space and Missile Defense Command (SMDC) and US Department of Defense Counter Narco-Terrorism Program Office (CNTPO) operations.

"This renewal signals the confidence our dedicated pilots and support teams have earned by providing reliable support in austere environments," said Randy J. Martinez, President, AAR Airlift Group. "We are very proud to provide airlift support for the US Government and its allies in this region as an integral part of our nation's extended transportation and logistics capability."

AAR's Airlift Group provides expeditionary airlift services for defense, security and humanitarian relief operations for the US Department of Defense (DoD) and other US agencies in three regions around the world, transporting personnel, supplies and mail over land and at sea.
