Summary
As aircraft age, they generally become more expensive to operate. The rate at which those operating costs grow is important for setting operating budgets and for deciding when to replace aging systems. The faster costs grow as a system ages, the more funding will be needed to maintain existing aircraft and the sooner it becomes cost-effective to replace aging systems with new aircraft. The rate of cost growth associated with the aging of Air Force aircraft has increased in recent years. Growth in the total Air Force budget during the 2000s appears to explain a considerable portion of the higher estimated annual growth rates in operating costs per flying hour beyond the growth rate intrinsic to the aging of the fleet. In other words, because the Air Force had more resources available, it was able to increase spending on aircraft operation and maintenance
