Shafiik Sadoola serves as Senior Operations Director at AAR, leading operations for Integrated Solutions and Parts Supply business units from AAR’s Gatwick (London, U.K.) office. Since joining AAR in 2016, Shafiik has implemented an industry leading 24/7 Parts Supply AOG service as well as being a catalyst for change and has led major process improvement projects. Under his leadership, the Parts Supply AOG team revenue has grown significantly and during the same time period diversified its product support – from not only offering component exchanges, but OEM distribution AOG support. Over the last 12 months, within the Integrated Solutions team the phrase, “turn on the lights” has been the theme, in practical terms: increasing accountability and awareness of the contractual obligations and commitment from our vendors and supplier to support our customers. At the same time, this initiated focus on process improvement, control and maximizing cost savings opportunities.
Prior to joining AAR, Shafiik worked with AJW for more than 8 years. He attained the position of Head of Repairs.
Shafiik holds a Master’s Degree in Aircraft Maintenance Management and a Bachelor of Engineering Degree in Aeronautics, Aviation, and Aerospace Science and Technology from the City of London University.
