AAR has been awarded a three-year contract by the Royal Netherlands Air Force (RNLAF) to perform maintenance, repair and overhaul on F-16 jet fuel starters.
The MRO will service the jet fuel starters in its component repair facility in Amsterdam, where it has been supporting European Participating Air Forces (EPAF) for over 30 years as a prime provider or subcontractor for repair management, component maintenance, supply chain and depot services.
“The RNLAF is pleased to have an MRO contract in place for its F-16 jet fuel starters,” said Lieutenant Colonel Ronald Zoeteman, Program Manager F-16. “The F-16 community is excited to have a trusted partner like AAR support the RNLAF to maintain and improve the availability of the F-16 fleet, and looks forward to continuing this valued relationship.
“AAR has been a proud and trusted partner of the RNLAF on the F-16 platform for more than 30 years,” said Maarten Willemsen, Government Program Manager of AAR Component Repair in Amsterdam. “Since the 1980s, AAR Amsterdam has serviced over 3,500 jet fuel starters at our Amsterdam facility – including all RNLAF jet fuel starters. The award of this End-of-Life-of-Type contract reflects our strong relationship, dedication to exceeding customer expectations and shared core values with the RNLAF.”
