AAR, one of the largest providers of aviation services in the Rockford area, has signed a multi-year agreement with United Airlines to service airframe maintenance for their narrow-body aircraft fleet at its Rockford, IL facility.
AAR anticipates this agreement will grow our region’s local workforce with the addition of up to 250 aviation maintenance technician jobs over the next few years.
The Workforce Connection (TWC) is has collaborated with AAR numerous times in the past to address their workforce needs and has utilized over $28,000 in workforce development dollars just in the past year for AAR projects, with more in the works. TWC has already begun communication on how our workforce board can support AAR’s anticipated development.
TWC is thrilled at the prospect of workforce growth in our region and the workforce system we provide will continue to work tirelessly to connect individuals with the necessary training/education for regional workforce needs.
