Abstract:

This thesis contains a Cost-Benefit Analysis conducted to determine the advisability and the economic feasibility of consolidating all Navy and Marine Corps A-6E Fleet Replacement Training Squadrons. A detailed examination is made of the prevailing and projected conditions at each of the current training sites. The accumulated data is analyzed regarding its effect on the training environment overall and the requirements for aircraft and personnel support under both present circumstances and the proposed conditions of consolidation. A range of feasible alternatives is then developed and cost estimates are presented for those possibilities. It is shown that consolidation is a realistic option, with certain logistical constraints, which will produce specific benefits in the quality of the resultant aircrews and possible fiscal savings to the Department of the Navy as well. The final recommendation involves adoption of the proposal according to the guidelines of one of two realistic alternatives developed by the research. Author
