Estimating aircraft base maintenance personnel
A discussion of methods for estimating aircraft base maintenance personnel requirements. Maintenance personnel are divided into three functional categories: direct maintenance, maintenance overhead, and other maintenance. A series of relationships is developed for the first category to estimate personnel requirements (man-hours per flying hour) for advanced aircraft, based on design and performance characteristics. Requirements for maintenance overhead are derived from these estimates. The Memorandum summarizes the techniques, using current USAF manning procedures, that can be used to estimate all other maintenance personnel. 101 pp.
