Pagination or Media Count:
A questionnaire survey was conducted to learn the costs of forced landings FLs and precautionary landings PLs. The questionnaire elicited cost data in respect to 1 the effect each mishap had on the mission assigned the mishap aircraft, 2 man-hours lost by the crew and passengers, 3 man-hours required to recover the crew, passengers, and aircraft, 4 time the mishap aircraft was unavailable for flight, 5 man-hours required to make the aircraft flyable, and 6 the components that malfunctioned to cause these mishaps. The broad and obscure costs revealed by the survey are sufficient to justify the initiation of a concerted effort to prevent the causes of these mishaps. Prevention of the causes of these mishaps will allow aviation units to operate more efficiently, i.e., allow them to maintain a higher state of combat readiness. Author
