This report presents generalized equations for estimating the development and production costs of aircraft airframes. It provides separate cost estimating relationships (CERs) for engineering, tooling, manufacturing labor, and quality-control hours; manufacturing material, development support, and flight-test cost; and total program cost. The CERs, expressed in the form of exponential equations, were derived from a database consisting of 34 military aircraft with first flight dates ranging from 1948 to 1978. In addition to the basic objective of developing an updated set of airframe CERs, the study also examined three specific possibilities for improving CER accuracy: (1) stratifying the full estimating sample into subsamples representing major differences in aircraft type; (2) incorporating variables describing program structure and airframe construction characteristics; and (3) for the fighter aircraft only, incorporating an objective technology index into the equations.

This series is specifically tailored to provide the information necessary to prepare an applicant for FAA mechanic certification with airframe and/or powerplant (A&P) ratings. These textbooks are designed for use by instructors and applicants preparing for the FAA Airframe Knowledge and Practical Exams, but also serve as an invaluable reference guide for certificated technicians who wish to improve their knowledge and practice. Chapter structure has been designed to ensure consistent and efficient internalization of the material presented. Photographs and detailed drawings illustrate concepts, improve understanding, and increase retention. This volume of the series emphasizes theory and methods of practical application within the overall topic of the airframe of an aircraft: how it is built, maintained, and repaired. It covers subjects such as airframe construction features, assembly and rigging, fabric covering, structural repairs, and aircraft welding. The specific topics addressed include Aircraft Instrument Systems, Communication and Navigation, Hydraulic and Pneumatic Power Systems, Aircraft Landing Gear Systems, Aircraft Fuel System, Ice and Rain Protection, Cabin Environmental Control Systems, and Fire Protection Systems.

Today's ejection seats still have performance shortfalls in the high speed regime typical of jet combat operations. These inadequancies are reflected in the increased incidence of aircrew injury when ejection occurs at speeds above 450 knots. An alternative approach, operational in the F-111 aircraft, is that of the jettisonable crew escape capsule. Although providing improved aircrew survivability during high speed ejection, the F-111 capsule design has proven to be maintenance intensive. The capsule-to-airframe interface involves pyrotechnic devices which destroy the interface upon ejection. Therefore, inspection and maintenance procedures require extensive hardware disassembly. In an effort to reduce the complexity of these procedures, simplify the structural interface, reduce life cycle costs, and facilitate removal and replacement of the capsule at the operational level, a non-destructive, mechanical latch interface has been proposed. This report describes the development of several mechanical latch concepts for use in proposed escape capsule/airframe interface. A detailed evaluation of these concepts is culminated by the development of a preferred design concept recommended for detailed development and prototype demonstration. Keywords: Jet fighters; Escape capsule latches; Disconnect fittings.
