AAR CORP., a leading provider of aviation services to commercial and government operators, MROs and OEMs, has expanded its partnership with Ontic by signing a military customer support distribution contract extension and a new long-term global commercial distribution agreement.
Under the military customer support distribution contract extension, AAR will continue to provide supply chain solutions, including warehousing, logistics and supply chain management, for Ontic’s Cheltenham MRO. AAR will also continue to deliver global distribution services, including sales and international government customer support of electronic assemblies, flight control units, gyroscopes and altimeters, for military operators.
This comprehensive supply chain agreement primarily focuses on Western and European platforms and serves the F-15, F-16, Hawk and Sea King aircraft, which are experiencing an increased operational tempo.
AAR will also become Ontic’s global exclusive OEM product distributor for the Twin Commander and Metro Merlin airframes. This new agreement increases AAR’s product offerings for commercial customers and provides Ontic’s customer base with lead time compression and elevated service levels.
