Abstract : The purpose of the More Supportable T-38A Enhancement Study was to investigate methods of improving T-38A fleet readiness and reduce operational support costs. A comparative and functional analysis approach was utilized to identify specific T-38A aircraft design and system support deficiencies that could be improved through a redesign effort or maintenance procedural changes. Several aircraft components were identified and targeted as potential redesign candidates. These T-38A components are also common to the F-5 and improvements to these components will enhance both T-38 and F-5 supportability.
