AAR receives FAA approval for 767-300 interior modifications
AAR has received design approval from the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to perform custom interior modifications for Boeing 767-300 aircraft operated by a major U.S. based international airline. AAR Engineering Services’ design modification increases the aircraft’s passenger count and includes the installation of flatbed seats, new in-flight entertainment systems and a lower lobe crew rest, as well as the replacement of galleys. AAR managed the processes to obtain the FAA Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) on the customer’s behalf and provided custom modification kits produced at AAR Aircraft Services in Indianapolis. AAR Engineering Services offered additional value by mitigating risks associated with design, scheduling and implementation of the STC, acting as a single point of contact overseeing integrated engineering, program management and supply chain management services.
