“Over the last three quarters, we have taken multiple actions to execute on our strategic plan to focus and improve on our core aviation services offering. We have divested certain non-core businesses, consolidated our facility footprint, and exited or restructured several underperforming contracts. We have also taken steps to permanently reduce our fixed and variable costs. We believe all of these actions have positioned us for improved operating margins as demand recovers in the commercial aviation business,” said John M. Holmes, President and Chief Executive Officer of AAR CORP.
