Abstract:

Army Aviation is an indispensable part of the modern battlefield. However, the increasing complexity of the aircraft and the tempo of the modern battlefield stress existing maintenance capabilities. The two most serious problems constraining aviation units today are identified as inadequate manning and an inefficient support structure. Current initiatives to resolve those problems are reviewed and analyzed for adequacy. Finally, alternate solutions are proposed and discussed. To provide historical perspective, a summarized history of the structure of Army aviation maintenance from 1909 to the present is incorporated into the paper.
