By Michael R. Thirtle, Michael Boito, Ian P. Cook, Bernard Fox, Phyllis Gilmore

Past due in 1996, the Air strength enlisted RAND's support to answer inquiries from Congress in regards to the results of a selected Air strength idea to consolidate and divest a component to Eglin Air strength Base's try out and evaluate features. The research came across parts of economic advantage within the inspiration but in addition parts that will not be not pricey. The authors spotlight parts of possibility for Air strength attention sooner than implementation.

RAND calculations are based on a 30percent reduction of support staff as a combined operation, as opposed to AFMC’s 40-percent reduction. 3 This involves moving not only the 46th Test Wing FHP but also all the associated maintenance functions, as we will discuss later. Maintenance is discussed later in this chapter. The 46th Test Wing FHP includes the following primary aircraft authorization (PAA)4: • Seven F-15s. Three F-15 A-Ds are fully instrumented for all development of F-15 testing, including operational flight program (OFP) and software suites.

We did not consider the potential for future operational surge or other associated benefits, such as increased capacity, that are available to the Air Force today. RAND’s findings about cost are driven primarily by data and estimates from the Air Force and other government sources that we contacted and interviewed for this work. In many cases, we were not able to assess the quality of inputs into the cost estimates and savings estimates provided to us. A series of repetitive inquiries to stakeholders helped us make comparisons among data sources, and interviews helped us develop a more-complete picture of the analysis.

14 These savings in flightline maintenance for the 46th Test Wing and AFMC will be offset by the additional personnel required by the 53rd Wing in ACC. 5 million per year. 1 million per year. Backshop Maintenance. Both the 46th and 412th Test Wings operate aircraft backshop repair functions, providing propulsion, avionics, accessory, and armament system maintenance, fabrication, maintenance control, nondestructive inspection, structural repair, and metal technology. The 46th Test Wing conducts backshop repair primarily with a contractor workforce.
