Abstract : This report presents summary data on airframe and engine characteristics and acquisition costs, and equations resulting from the application of multiple regression analysis. Cost and characteristic data are presented in summary form for 35 aircraft airframes and for 20 turbine engines. The cost data is divided between recurring and non-recurring to aid analysis. Equations that relate cost to physical, performance and program characteristics are given with appropriate indicators of their 'goodness of fit'.
