AAR Supplies Cargo Systems to IAIWood Dale, Illinois - AAR's Cargo Systems Division was selected by Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) to manufacture the main deck cargo loading systems for their B767-200 Multi-Mission Tanker Transport (MMTT) conversion program. IAI took delivery of an initial cargo loading system earlier this year and the first converted aircraft was recently re-delivered to the end-user.
In addition to the B767-200 MMTT, AAR has supplied IAI with cargo loading systems for their B767-200 and B767-300 passenger-to-freighter conversion programs. The cargo loading systems are manufactured at AAR's state-of-the-art facility in Goldsboro, North Carolina.
