The FAA has given the green light to AAR for its new aircraft maintenance facility in Duluth, Minn. The addition of the Duluth facility increases AAR’s worldwide aircraft maintenance capacity by approximately 10 percent. Duluth joins AAR facilities in Indianapolis; Oklahoma City; Miami; and Hot Springs, Ark., as part of the company’s nationwide “1MRO” network.

AAR expects the 188,000-sq-ft facility to be operational with a launch customer by year-end and anticipates that it will be running at full capacity within a year. AAR has already begun hiring in Duluth and has immediate openings for aviation maintenance technicians.

“The new operation is designed to be efficient and scalable, enabling us to start with a single line of maintenance and quickly expand to accommodate additional work,” said Timothy Romenesko, president and COO. “We appreciate the tremendous collaboration of the FAA, Duluth Airport Authority, local officials and economic development teams for their assistance in securing our regulatory approval and preparing the facility for operations.”
