    The was the first Boeing wide-body to be designed with a two-crew digital glass cockpit. Cathode ray tube (CRT) color displays and new electronics replaced the role of the flight engineer by enabling the pilot and co-pilot to monitor aircraft systems directly. Despite the promise of reduced crew costs, United Airlines initially demanded a conventional three-person cockpit, citing concerns. Matthew Dixon has 15 books on Goodreads with ratings.

    As many of its fleets of legacy aircraft types are kept in service well beyond their planned services lives (sometimes in age, sometimes in usage, sometimes both), the United States Air Force (USAF) faces numerous engineering and resource challenges for the continued, cost-effective sustainment of those aging systems. This report details the recommendations made by the USAF Scientific Advisory.   The Air Force developed the B-1 in the s as the B's replacement. President Jimmy Carter killed it, President Ronald Reagan brought .

CiteSeerX - Document Details (Isaac Councill, Lee Giles, Pradeep Teregowda): ), the United States Air Force (USAF) will operate many of its aircraft well beyond their original design service lives. The USAF Scientific Advisory Board (SAB) was tasked to identify investments that will contribute to the safety, availability, and capability for those fleets that are approaching their.

Some point, it seems wrong to continue to repair an aging system. However, replacement systems typically entail considerable up-front investment. This study continues a sequence of RAND Project AIR FORCE reports on aging aircraft and the replacement-repair decision, of which Greenfield and Persselin () and Pyles () are recent examples.

In particular, we look at this issue from the perspective of the United States Air Force. Modeling the Decision to Repair or Replace an Aging Aircraft We consider a type of aircraft (e.g., a tanker) that the Air Force envisions having in its inventory, in some form, into the foreseeable future.

Investigating optimal replacement of aging air force systems. An availability-oriented approach has been developed to decide when to replace an aging system. For an existing system, it is optimal to operate another year if and only if the incremental cost per available year is less than the lifetime average cost per available year of a new.

Aircraft are not being replaced or retired in large numbers but are instead having their lives extended beyond their original design service lives. Because aging aircraft cost more to maintain, this additional burden on air forces is a forcing function for smarter.

At the headquarters, our responsibility is to optimize the effectiveness of the limited resources available, across all of the Air Force missions. This includes determining how to modernize and recapitalize an aging inventory - one of the Air Force's most critical challenges.
