A technique is demonstrated for computing Operational Readiness Float ORF Factors for selected first line aircraft systems. The base period for data used in the study is Jan 68 thru Dec 71, corresponding to RVN combat years. The technique relates quantitatively flying time rates, the number of maintenance events lasting in excess of AR 750-1 float issue limits, the average duration of those events, and the density of deployed aircraft in RVN, in CONUS, and OCONUS outside of RVN. Computed percentages are presented as raw ORF factors suitable for judicious integration with operational experience to yield usable factors approved by the Department of the Army. Author
