AAR has opened a new 12,500-sq-ft Aircraft Wheel and Brake Services facility extension to its existing Landing Gear Services operation in Miami. The company has been in the Miami area since 1987 offering commercial, military and regional aviation customers’ repair, rebuilding and inspection services.

 “The opening of this new facility demonstrates AAR’s continued commitment to expand our capabilities. I’m proud of our team in Miami and am hopeful that this facility will continue to create aviation jobs in the area,” said Pastor Lopez, general manager of AAR Landing Gear Services. “We’ve [built] our Wheel and Brake Services business from fewer than ten employees only a year ago to 30 employees today. With this new facility we are well positioned to pursue new business opportunities in the aviation industry.”
