Abstract:

Army aircraft mishaps are among the highest concerns of Army management. The Army invests significant amounts of moneys into training aviators. The Worldwide Aviation Logistics Conference WALC meets annually at the U.S. Army Aviation Systems Command USAAVSCOM in St. Louis, Missouri. One of the issues that the WALC addresses is Safety. The WALC uses factors to assess probable accident rates for proposed flying levels. The Peacetime Replacement Factor PTRF relates flying hours to the expected number of aircraft losses. The Crash Damage CD Factor relates flying hours to the expected number of crash damaged aircraft. Flying hours are expressed in a per 100,000 basis. Annual updates are made to these factors by the Operational Systems Analysis Division of the Directorate for Systems and Cost Analysis at AVSCOM. Non-linear Class A Class B Crash damage factor Factors Army aircraft Peacetime replacement factor Linear.
