Abstract
This Project Report documents the Life Cycle Cost (LCC) analysis conducted in support of the Combined Operational Effectiveness and Investment Appraisal for the CC130E Replacement Study. This study was conducted because the CC130E fleet is approaching its Estimate Life Expectancy (ELE) of 2010. To go beyond this date, the CC130E aircraft will require significant refurbishment. Two options are considered in order to maintain the current airlift capability beyond 2010. The first option is the refurbishment of the CC130E aircraft. The second option is the replacement of all CC130E by new C130J "Hercules II" aircraft. This study showed that although there are expected savings of about 20% in Personnel. Operation and Maintenance (P, O&M) costs per flying hour for the C130J, the acquisition cost of a replacement fleet is much higher than the cost to refurbish the CC130Es.
