ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) -- Jobs are opening up in the Stateline, nearly two months after the grand opening of the AAR hangar at Rockford's airport.

This comes as work begins on an aircraft at the newly opened maintenance hangar. Now, AAR says they are looking to fill 100 positions for aircraft mechanics. The Rockford Area Economic Development Council says they are happy that AAR is fulfilling a promise they made to the community bring jobs to the Stateline.
