Abstract:

The Operation and Maintenance, Air Force appropriation supports combat readiness and sustainability of Air Force operations through the financing of the day-to-day costs of operating and maintaining the Air Force excluding military pay and allowances. This appropriation provides the money needed to buy fuels, lubricants and expendable parts for aircraft, missiles, and vehicles. It is also used to support space launches, maintain runways and facilities, operate the physical plants, train and provide health care to personnel, pay civilian employees, maintain worldwide communications, and to support combat related activities such as intelligence, logistics, weather, air traffic control, and search and rescue operations. The financial requirements in the Operation and Maintenance, Air Force appropriation are directly influenced by force levels and activity indicators. Examples of these include the number and type of aircraft and squadrons, the number of aircraft sorties and flying hours, personnel strength, deployments, readiness objectives, the number of installations and the complexity of vehicles and other equipment operation. The FY 1988FY 1989 Operation and Maintenance, Air Force budget contains separate and distinct justification data for each year.
