Operating Costs

Sun Feb 27, 2005 12:30 pm

Does anyone know how to find out the average hourly operating costs of various airframes? i.e. F-15, F-16, F-22, T-1, T-6, T-38, C-17, C-5, C-130

Try FAS.org and do a search for flight hour costs.

yea, pretty much...my curiosity got the best of me  Big grin

I tried FAS.org and was able to find the cost per aircraft, but not the hourly operating costs.

Try this one. It's sort of convoluted, but it's the best I've seen on the net

Hmmm, got me. Try shooting an email to the FAS.org folks, since they posted it there's a hope they'll know what it means.
