    MONTREAL, Nov. 13 /CNW/ - AAER Inc. (TSX-V: AAE), Canada's only wind

announced private placement on a best efforts basis for the issuance of
11,000,000 units at Cdn $1.15 per unit. Each unit is composed of one common
share and one-half warrant. Each whole warrant entitles its holder to purchase
one additional common share of AAER at a price of Cdn $1.60 at any time until

period of 18 months following the present date.
    "In the context of growing market opportunities, this infusion of capital
comes at an important moment in the development of our Company," said Dave
Gagnon, President and CEO of AAER. "As the demand for wind turbines continues
to accelerate, this offering will provide us with the necessary capital to
secure our supply chain and allow us to be in a strong position to begin
assembly and production as planned."

expenditures requirements at the Bromont manufacturing plant, to order certain
major components, to effect license payments and for working capital purposes.
