Abstract
The Canadian Firces (CF) currently use condition-based maintenance (CBM) practices to support the maintenance of the CF-18 F404 engines. As a component of the CBM program, the CF operates a First Line Troubleshooting System (FLTS) at each CF-18 squadron to enable engine technicians to rapidly and accurately diagnose engine faults. The Chief of Research and Development (CRAD-Air) has commissioned a study to determine the annual cost savings by the FLTS. The results of this study have shown that the system saves the government over $1 million annually and, has shown a payback period of 8 months.
