Aircraft and Equipment

When the Army Air Forces began Its unprecedented expansion from peace-time to war-time strength, two problems of materiel management became most critical: the determination of advance requirements and the effective distribution of equipment on hand. Requirements for aircraft, for spare parts and far expendable supplies had to be gauged for long periods ahead because the production cycle was as long as two years for some items. It was also necessary to make new calculations of the useful life and required replacement rates of aircraft and equipment under combat conditions abroad and under intensified training operations in the United States. In order to study requirements and to make the necessary forward estimates, it was mandatory that a reporting system be developed to provide current, continuous data on aircraft and equipment on hand and on inventory gains and losses.

The problem of effective distribution of equipment on hand could be solved only through a similar reporting system. The Army Air Forces was initially short of airplanes--bombers, fighters, transports and trainers--and had to be certain that every plane produced was put to use as quickly as possible and in the most profitable place and manner. Close accounting was required to provide the degree of control that had to be attained.

The completed aircraft, as the instrument of air power, was brought under the closest possible control with a detailed reporting system. In the United States, every organization with Army Air Forces aircraft submitted a dally inventory report (the AAF Form 110) by teletype, giving the number of aircraft on hand for each type, model, and series, the number In and out of commission and flying hours. Gains and losses of aircraft were reported on this form by serial number, with the designation of the organization from which the aircraft were gained or to which they were lost. These dally reports were passed through each echelon of command to Headquarters, Army Air Forces, in Washington, thus providing each command headquarters with the information it needed to control aircraft assignment within subordinate commands or units.

Reporting from overseas theaters was more difficult to organize than reporting in Continental US because of the nature of combat operations and less adequate communications systems. Aircraft loss statistics in preliminary farm were reported by cable from the theaters. These preliminary reports were supported (and corrected, as was frequently necessary) by monthly air mail summaries which gave the "firm" inventory figures and the aircraft losses by serial number.

In establishing effective materiel controls, it was recognized early that some component parts of the aircraft, and some types of supply, were very nearly as critical as the complete aircraft Itself. Engines and propellers were two items for which specific, detailed reports were set up on a continuing basis. High octane aviation gasoline became a highly critical item and was the subject of several special and periodic reports both In the United States and overseas. Gasoline stocks and consumption rates per aircraft per hour were watched closely through the medium of standard statistical reports.

Not all of the hundreds of thousands of items of equipment and supply used by the Army Air Forces could be c overed by the type of report used in controlling the assignment and use of aircraft, engines, gasoline and a limited number of other major equipment assemblies and supply items. For the mass of supply items, a machine tabulation stock balance ledger system was organized in Headquarters, Air Technical Service Command. This system covered only the United States. Like and related items were grouped in "classes" and reported monthly. Because of the great number of items, it was necessary to stagger the complete report over the month, different "classes" of items being reported on different days. There were over 600,000 separate items in the inventory, and the vast amount of paper work involved in tabulating bin cards, filling In inventory transmission sheets, then transcribing the information on punch cards and tabulating a complete record, made this one of the most difficult reporting problems handled by the Army Air Forces.

In addition to the data on major items of equipment and supply and the stock balance ledger summary, a few tables have been included in this section as representative of special information used for control purposes within the Air Technical Service Command. These include data on the repair and overhaul of aircraft engines, storage, movements of materiel and overseas shipments, all of which are important functions of ATSC. Standardized reports have been important aids In providing the required control over these activities.

Table 82
Average Unit Cost of Airplanes Authorized,
By Principal Model:
Fiscal Years 1939 to 1945

(Average cost per airplane is the weighted average of all programs approved during a designated fiscal year and represents the estimated cost of a complete airplane ready for flyaway, including factory installed ordnance and radio equipment. Costs exclude equipment installed at modification centers and airplane spare parts. Unit costs reflect renegotiation of contracts only to the extent of reductions in contract prices for future deliveries but do not reflect reductions in price effected by cash refunds.)
