Abstract : The Navy has proposed purchasing additional weapons tactics trainers to support F/A-18 training. GAO's analysis of F/A-18 training plans indicates that changes which have occurred in several key factors used by Navy planners would reduce projected requirements for weapons tactics trainers, thereby reducing the Navy's proposed F/A-18 simulator investment by an estimated $110 million. GAO recommends that the Navy reassess the need for additional weapons tactics trainers and also suggests some management initiatives which can increase the trainers' availability during peak training periods.
