Government aircraft, Helicopters -- Maintenance and repair, Logistics
The initial forecasting of logistical support for new types of military aircraft is a perplexing problem. The objective of this research was to investigate the feasibility of using data generated by the accelerated flight tests as a basis for forecasting the logistical field requirements. The data used in the study were obtained from the U.S. Army Aviation Board, Fort Rucker, Alabama, where performance tests are conducted on all new aircraft to determine their suitability for Army use. It was statistically shown that the use of these data could provide more realistic logistical forecasts earlier in the introductory phase of the aircraft. This concept would increase the operational availability of the aircraft and reduce the cost of maintaining the aircraft during its introductory phase.
