AAR has commenced construction on its new maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) facility at Miami International Airport, Florida, US. 

The company is an aviation services provider for commercial and government operators. 

The latest expansion is set to bolster AAR’s airframe MRO capacity by 33%.  

The ground-breaking ceremony was attended by more than 400 individuals including AAR chairman, president and CEO John Holmes, among others. 

John Holmes said: “The construction of this facility is an important step in AAR’s growth strategy that enables us to best serve our valued customers. We are enthusiastic that our expansion in Miami will create career opportunities and continue to strengthen the aviation industry in south Florida.” 

The new three-bay 114,000ft2 facility is being built adjacent to AAR’s current hangar at the airport.

Construction of the new MRO facility is financially backed by Miami-Dade County, which has pledged to reimburse the construction costs.  

Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava said: “As a leader in international passengers and cargo, MIA is one of the busiest and best mega airports in the country – and AAR’s significant infrastructure investment only advances our local aviation industry. 

“This expansion will strengthen the robust training and repair programs AAR is known for and bring more than 200 new jobs to Miami-Dade County.” 

The facility, which is anticipated to be fully operational by October 2025, is expected to create more than 200 jobs in Miami.
