Rockwell Collins signs long-term agreement with AAR to service a host of commercial aircraft

“This program with Rockwell Collins enhances AAR’s ability to provide comprehensive, one-stop shopping and support to our customers,” said John Holmes, Group Vice President – Aviation Supply Chain. “The relationship also helps us add even more value to our customers through competitive pricing, innovative solutions and world class technical support, including engineering, reliability and service improvements.”

Rockwell Collins’ global network of more than 80 locations provides MRO of avionics equipment for more than 6,000 commercial, business, corporate and military operations.
