MAIDEN, NC - Air T, Inc. (AirT) (NASDAQ: AIRT) today reported a consolidated
net loss of $1,224,000 (($0.45) per diluted share) for fiscal 2003, which
ended March 31, 2003, compared to a consolidated net profit of $1,278,000
($0.45 per diluted share) for fiscal 2002.  Fiscal 2003's net loss was
comprised of $366,000 ($0.13 per diluted share) in earnings from continuing
operations, offset by a $1,590,000 (($0.58) per diluted share) loss from
discontinued operations

During the fourth quarter of fiscal 2003 the Company decided to dispose of
its aviation related parts brokerage and overhaul services through its wholly
owned subsidiary, Mountain Aircraft Services, LLC ("MAS").  The Company
entered into a letter of intent on June 19, 2003 to sell the business
operations of MAS.  As detailed in Financial Highlights below, the Company's
financial statements have been reclassified to reflect the results of MAS as
a discontinued operation.

The Company's continuing operations operate in two business segments,
providing overnight air cargo services to the air express delivery sector and
aviation ground support equipment products to passenger and cargo airlines,
the U.S. Government and airports.

Consolidated revenue from continuing operations decreased $16,731,000 (28.1%)
to $42,872,000 for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2003 compared to the prior
fiscal year.  The decrease in 2003 revenue primarily resulted from a decrease
in Global revenue of $17,372,000 (57.2%) to $12,972,000, partially offset by a
$641,000 (2.2%) increase in air cargo revenue to $29,899,000 in fiscal 2003.

The business of Global has been adversely affected by reduced orders from
commercial airlines and aviation related companies, due principally to the
continued severe downturn in the commercial aviation industry, which started
in early 2001 and significantly increased after September 11, 2001.

Walter Clark, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of AirT, commented, "The
decision to sell AirT's subsidiary MAS was based on the desire to focus on
our air cargo operations and ground support equipment manufacturer.
AirT has a solid customer base in both business segments and
we anticipate that these relationships will remain strong in the coming

AirT, through its subsidiaries, provides overnight air freight service to the
express delivery industry, and manufactures and services aircraft ground
service equipment.  AirT is one of the largest, small-aircraft air cargo
operators in the United States.  It currently operates a fleet of single and
twin engine turbo-prop aircraft nightly in the eastern half of the United
States and Canada, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.
