Posted 13 July 2016 · Add Comment

AAR has announced US Transportation Command has awarded its Airlift division a task order for additional rotary wing airlift services in Afghanistan, as part of an existing services contract to support US Central Command.

The task order for nine months of service is valued at $21.7 million.

Under the contract, AAR Airlift will provide utility helicopter services to include passenger and cargo transport and external cargo transport to US Department of Defense forces. AAR Airlift will provide two helicopters, flight operations, maintenance and logistics support, and personnel.

“We are very well positioned to respond rapidly to requirements across the globe with our fleet of fixed wing and rotary wing aircraft and our dedicated team of professionals," said Steven B. Harrison, president of AAR Airlift Group. "Leveraging our extensive flight operations experience in this austere and inaccessible region, AAR will field an additional operational hub in fewer than 10 days following contract award notification, including two aircraft, personnel, spares, tooling and consumables.” The Company has operated rotary wing aircraft in Afghanistan since 2009.
