                        FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


MAIDEN,  NC  -  Air  T,  Inc. (AirT) (NASDAQ:  AIRT)  today  reported
unaudited consolidated net earnings of $230,000 ($0.08 per share) for
fiscal  2004's third quarter ended December 31, 2003, compared  to  a
net  earnings of $37,000 ($0.01 per share) for the third  quarter  of
fiscal  2003.  Consolidated revenues for fiscal 2004's third  quarter
were  $12,980,000 compared to $11,235,000 for the similar 2003 fiscal
quarter.   The current quarter's increased revenues and net  earnings
primarily  resulted from substantially increased air  cargo  revenue,
partially offset by decreased ground equipment sales and earnings  by
the Company's Global Ground Support (Global) subsidiary.  Nine month,
year-to-date,   consolidated  revenues   increased   $7,052,000,   to
$37,659,000, while net earnings increased $1,425,000 to current year-
to-date net earnings of $937,000.

AirT's  fiscal  2004's  net earnings for the  three  and  nine  month
periods  ended  December  31,  2003 are, respectively,  comprised  of
$309,000  and $1,365,000 in net earnings from continuing  operations,
offset  by  $79,000  and  $428,000 in net  losses  from  discontinued
operations.   The  Company decided to dispose of its  aviation  parts
brokerage  and overhaul services through its wholly owned  subsidiary
Mountain Aircraft Services, LLC ("MAS") during the fourth quarter  of
fiscal  2003, and a sale was completed during the second  quarter  of
fiscal  2004.   As  detailed  in  Financial  Highlights  below,   the
operations of MAS have been reclassified to reflect its results as  a
discontinued  operation  in  the  Company's  consolidated   financial
