AAR Signs MoU with Korean Aerospace Engineering & Maintenance Services
AAR, a provider of aviation services to commercial airlines and governments worldwide, announced a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to provide consulting services for Korean Aerospace Engineering & Maintenance Services (KAEMS).
The two companies will collaborate to define required capabilities and infrastructure for a new KAEMS facility in South Korea that will provide component maintenance for the Republic of Korea Air Force’s (ROKAF) F-16 fleet. The MoU includes training for KAEMS employees at AAR’s component repair facilities in Amsterdam and New York.
“As an independent maintenance, repair and overhaul provider, specifically for the F-16 platform, AAR is an ideal partner for KAEMS,” said Youn Ki Cho, KAEMS CEO. “Our advantages include a commercial model, skilled workforce and familiarity with the F-16 airframe overhaul.”
“AAR has extensive expertise in component maintenance and the F-16 in specific thanks to our global repair centers,” said Ken Hein, AAR’s SVP Group Operations. “Sharing this expertise with our partners at KAEMS will bring a critical readiness capability to South Korea in direct support of its frontline F-16s.”
