The city of Duluth is courting AAR Aircraft Services to move into the former Northwest Airlines maintenance facility, which has largely sat empty since the airline moved out in 2005.

Duluth is on the short list of possible Midwestern sites for AAR’s planned expansion, city officials revealed today.

If Duluth is chosen, the company could bring up to 250 well-paying aviation maintenance jobs to Duluth. They include airframe and power plant mechanics, sheet metal, avionics, interior specialists and inspectors.
