AAR has signed a long-term repair and overhaul license agreement, along with a parts supply agreement, with Honeywell Aerospace that will see it provide repairs of over 1,800 Honeywell base part number and line replacements unit (LRU) repair items in its New York and Amsterdam component repair shops.
To support those repairs, AAR will source over 4,000 material supply piece part items from Honeywell, which will also provide repair and overhaul of LRUs to support AAR’s growing flight-hour component support programmes for airline fleets worldwide.
The agreement covers various platforms including pneumatics, hydraulics, and power generation for Boeing, Airbus and regional commercial fleet types. These combined agreements make AAR a long-term ‘Channel Partner’ to help grow and maintain the Honeywell products globally.
“This is the latest step in AAR’s focus on continuous improvement to drive more predictable maintenance while gaining the highest on-wing reliability for our airline customers,” said Ken Hein, senior vice-president of operations, AAR. “We partner with Honeywell in many of our aviation service businesses, and this agreement will build on that strong relationship.”
