An aviation services company at the Rockford Airport held a job fair to double its workforce.
The AAR company is looking for aircraft mechanics and support technicians. A spokesman says the company’s making an effort now to bring people in because there could be a rush of airlines getting their jets in for service before the busy holiday travel season.
“We are really banging the drum across the region and beyond for people to come and move here,” said AAR Dir. of Talent Acquisition Greg Dellinger.
