AAR Airlift, one of the largest providers of intra-theater transport for U.S. and NATO forces in Afghanistan, has added two new Sikorsky S-92 Helibus helicopters to its fleet of 29 rotary-wing and 20 fixed-wing aircraft providing airlift services to the government.

The S-92s are being used in support of a $450 million contract for super-heavy airlift services for USTRANSCOM. Putting the Helibuses into service marks a major milestone for AAR Airlift, as it expands and optimizes its fleet to serve a wider range of Department of Defense airlift requirements. AAR’s fleet now is capable of serving medium, heavy and super-heavy airlift categories.

AAR (Booth No. 1600), headquartered in Wood Dale, Ill., also provides a variety of value-added products and services to the worldwide aerospace and government/defense industries.
