Abstract : An analysis of the steady-state performance of an aircraft subjected to a maximum daytime flying effort under the condition of unlimited maintenance resources. The uses of the model are discussed, and the results of some 200 computer runs are described. One group of runs measures the sensitivity of the performance of the aircraft to the description of the maintenance function. Another group measures the sortie generation capability as a function of the length of the flying day, the length of the flight, and the mean turnaround time. (Author)
