WOOD DALE, ILLINOIS (December 21, 2017) — AAR CORP. (NYSE: AIR) today reported second quarter Fiscal Year 2018 consolidated sales of $449.7 million, representing a $25.9 million or 6% increase year over year.  This increase was driven by strong sales growth in the Aviation Services segment, which increased 13% from $346.7 million to $391.6 million.
