- Full Report:
The Department of Defense (DOD) spends over $2 billion annually for such aircraft depot maintenance as major overhaul and repair or modification of components, engines, and airframes.
The separate aircraft depot maintenance systems of the three military services waste money, personnel, and materials. Proliferating redundant and underused resources has resulted in such maintenance costing more than necessary.
