Abstract:

This study addresses Department of Defense DoD passenger airlift. It responds to a request by the Assistant Secretary of Defense Acquisition and Logistics ASDAL and is intended to provide an assessment of the current passenger airlift system and, more importantly, to identify those actions which can be taken to further strengthen the DoD passenger airlift acquisition process. The findings and recommendations are intended to enhance the quality of airlift provided to DoD personnel and their families and to assure the safest possible air transportation for DoD and its people. DoD is responsible for arranging the air transportation of over 6 million passengers per year. These passengers range from combat forces moving to and from exercise areas to military personnel and their families traveling to new duty locations. Because of historical precedent, Congressional and Administration policy, cognizance of DoDs wartime and contingency needs, and sound economics, most DoD passengers are moved by commercial carriers. Under the premise that passenger traffic, in both peace and war, will make use of commercial aircraft, military airlift aircraft are designed to transport cargo and are not well suited to routine passenger airlift.
