Abstract : This study focused on the requirements for an engine shop under a composite fighter wing structure. The composite fighter wing structure was proposed to provide Tactical Air Forces the capability to better meet the challenge of low intensity conflicts and to provide increased aircraft survivability. This study looked specifically at engine shop facility sizes, engine test facilities, and engine shop manpower needs. All computations were based on current facility size measurement data, test facility needs, and manpower authorizations. This information was used to calculate the engine shop requirements for each type of composite fighter wing engine shop. The study revealed that a Close Air Support Wing would require a facility with engine test facilities, and 85-99 engine shop repair personnel.
