- Full Report:
The following matters concerning aircraft armament training courses at Fort Eustis, Virginia, were examined: the adequacy of the training facilities, whether armament training courses were being conducted, qualifications of the instructors teaching the courses, the cost of moving the courses from Aberdeen Proving Ground, and the charging of instructor salaries.
The facilities and support necessary to conduct the three courses at Fort Eustis appear to be adequate, and any problems encountered were corrected in a timely manner. From October, 1976, through February 4, 1977, 19 classes in aircraft armament, aircraft fire control, and armament subsystem mechanics were started. As of February 4, 1977, nine classes were completed and 10 classes were in session. The instructors assigned to teach the courses at Fort Eustis were qualified. The actual costs of moving cannot be determined because civilian personnel moving expenses and allowances have not been paid. Actual costs of the move to date are $57,740 and estimated costs are $53,823, totalling $111,563. Civilian instructor expenses were charged to school salary and benefit accounts from October 1 to December 13, 1976. Fiscal year 1976 funding for conducting the courses was given to Fort Eustis. (RRS)
