                        FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MAIDEN,  NC  -  Air  T,  Inc. (AirT) (NASDAQ:  AIRT)  today  reported
unaudited consolidated net earnings of $538,000 ($0.20 per share) for
fiscal  2005's second quarter ended September 30, 2004,  compared  to
net earnings of $358,000 ($0.13 per share) for the second quarter  of
fiscal  2004.  Consolidated revenues for fiscal 2005's second quarter
was  $16,366,000 compared to $13,623,000 for the similar 2004  fiscal
quarter.   Six  month, year-to-date, consolidated revenues  increased
$6,773,000, to $31,452,000, while net earnings increased $365,000  to
current year-to-date net earnings of $1,072,000.

AirT's fiscal 2005's net earnings for the three and six month periods
ended September 30, 2004 are, respectively, comprised of $538,000 and
$1,072,000 in net earnings from continuing operations, which  include
residual  costs  associated with the discontinued  operation  of  the
aviation parts and services business segment while the periods  ended
September  30,  2003  are, respectively, comprised  of  $612,000  and
$1,056,000   in   earnings   from  continuing   operations,   offset,
respectively,  by  $254,000 and $349,000 in losses from  discontinued

The  current  three  and six-month periods ended September  30,  2004
increased revenues resulted from both increased ground equipment  and
air cargo revenues.  The increased net earnings were due to increased
ground  equipment  segment earnings during the  current  periods  and
losses on the discontinued operations of the Company's aviation parts
and service segment incurred in the prior periods ended September 30,
2003.   The  equipment  sector's increase net  earnings  were  partly
offset  by a net earnings decrease in the air cargo sector.  The  net
earnings  decrease  in  air  cargo  was  due  to  a  combination   of
temporarily  decreased  administrative  fees  and  higher  levels  of
current  period  administrative costs.  The  temporary  reduction  in
administrative   fees  resulted  from  delays   in   its   customer's
introduction  of  newer  technology  aircraft,  currently  undergoing
conversion to cargo configuration, as older cargo aircraft are phased
out   of  service.   Administrative  costs  increased  as  additional
staffing  has been put in place to oversee the phase-in of the  newer
aircraft and route expansion.

Walter  Clark, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of AirT,  stated,
"These continued good earnings are indicative of strong relationships
with  our  core customers.  Both freight delivery companies  and  the
equipment   manufacturing  company  have   long   standing   business
associations that continue to be significant.  AirT strives to
provide  the highest degree of service and reliability to all business
