Air Industries Group (the "Company" or "Air Industries") Announces Anticipated 
Sales Decline for Second Quarter of 2014 
BAY SHORE, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 05/16/14 --  Air Industries Group
(NYSE MKT: AIRI) (Air Industries or the Company) announced today that
it anticipates that consolidated net sales for the calendar quarter
ending on June 30, 2014, will be approximately $12.5 million; a
decrease of approximately $3.0 million from first quarter net sales
of $15.5 million. During the Second Quarter of 2014 the Company
encountered delays in production of E2D landing gear. We expect that
these problems will be corrected in the third and fourth quarter of
2014. The Company still anticipates that we will have positive EBITDA
for the Second Quarter of 2014. 
Air Industries anticipates that net sales for the year ending
December 31, 2014 will be approximately $64.5 million, in line with
our previous expectation for the year and results for 2013. These
amounts do not include sales from our previously announced two
acquisitions which have not yet closed.  
Mr. Peter Rettaliata, Chief Executive Officer of Air Industries,
commented: "The delays in shipping product are disappointing but it
is important to note that these products will ship in the near future
and that our expectations for the year remain unchanged."
