AAR to manage component repairs, inventory for UK’s Royal Squadron
AAR has been selected by the UK Ministry of Defence (UK MoD) as the exclusive manager and single source of all repairs, spare parts and unit exchanges for its fleet of BAe146 aircraft. The two-year agreement includes an additional one-year renewal option and replaces an agreement signed in 2012 establishing AAR as an exclusive supplier. The RAF fleet of four BAe146 aircraft are operated by 32 (The Royal) Squadron from RAF Northolt. The prime role of the Squadron is to support UK Operations. The secondary role is to provide a flexible and immediately available VVIP service to various UK government customers.
