Abstract : This thesis examines the Flying Hour Program (FHP) as it is employed in the air components of the branches of the US military and as it is currently employed in the budgeting process of the Colombian Air Force (CAF). Key steps, players and purposes of the program are explored. Close examination of the program in the US Navy allows for the identification of procedures that might be useful in the budgeting process of the CAF, which is currently undergoing a migration toward automated information systems. Reliance on information systems technology and participation at all levels, makes the US Navy FHP an attractive model for the CAF in improving its own FHP. This thesis outlines key factors to be considered in the implementation process within the CAF.
