AAR awarded US$41 million contract by National Nuclear Security Administration to provide reconfigured transport aircraft

AAR, a provider of aviation services to commercial and government operators, MROs and OEMs, has been awarded a firm, fixed-price contract by the Department of Energy’s (DOE) National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) for the conversion and delivery of a B737-700 aircraft modified into a “FlexCombi” configuration.

With this acquisition, the NNSA will increase its fleet size to support mission critical activities to maintain the safety, security and effectiveness of the United States’ nuclear deterrent capacity. The FlexCombi configuration gives the NNSA the ability to quickly configure the aircraft between passenger and/or cargo modes, serving ever-evolving mission requirements. Work will commence immediately and be completed within twelve months.
