D. SYSTEM DESCRIPTION

1. Operational Uses. The mission of the C-130T Logistics Support Aircraft, hereafter referred to as the C-130T Aircraft, is to provide logistics support to Navy fleet operating forces. The C-130T Aircraft provides rapid transportation for personnel or cargo for delivery by parachute or landing. The aircraft can be used as a tactical transport, or readily converted for ambulance or aerial delivery missions. The aircraft can land and take off on short runways, and can be used on landing strips such as those found in advanced base operations. It can provide mission capabilities such as emergency evacuation of personnel and key equipment, advanced party reconnaissance, and special warfare operations, as directed.

2. Foreign Military Sales. The C-130T Aircraft is one of a large family of aircraft used by all services and many foreign governments, as well as civilian aircraft companies. For information on C-130T Aircraft Foreign Military Sales, refer to N951G.

E. DEVELOPMENTAL TEST AND OPERATIONAL TEST. C-130T Aircraft that were delivered to the Naval Air Reserve Force are new production units. The C-130 Aircraft passed all Developmental Tests (DT) and Operational Tests (OT) over the years since the aircraft's introduction in the early 1960s. The C-130T Aircraft is a follow-on model of the C-130 Aircraft series. No new DT or OT was required.

F. AIRCRAFT AND/OR EQUIPMENT/SYSTEM/SUBSYSTEM REPLACED. C-130T Aircraft did not replace any existing aircraft within the Naval Air Reserve Force inventory.

G. DESCRIPTION OF NEW DEVELOPMENT

1. Functional Description. The C-130T Aircraft provides rapid logistics support to Navy operating forces. It can be configured to provide transportation of personnel or cargo. Delivery of cargo may be accomplished by parachute, low level fly-by ground extraction, or landing. As a tactical transport, the C-130T Aircraft can carry 92 ground troops or 64 paratroopers and equipment. It can be configured as a medical evacuation platform capable of carrying 74 litters. The C-130T Aircraft can land and takeoff on short runways and can be used on primitive landing strips in advanced base areas. The C-130T Aircraft is also capable of providing mission support in emergency evacuation of personnel and key equipment, advanced party reconnaissance, and special warfare operations.

2. Physical Description. The C-130T Aircraft is a high wing, all metal, long-range, land-based monoplane. Power is supplied by four Allison T56-A-16 turboprop, constant-speed engines. Provisions for assisted takeoff solid-fuel units are provided to satisfy requirements for additional thrust during takeoff. Each engine drives a four-blade Hamilton Standard Hydromatic, constant-speed propeller with full feathering and reversible pitch capability. The principal dimensions are:

3. New Development Introduction. The C-130T Aircraft was introduced into the Naval Air Reserve Force as a new production aircraft. Introduction began in July 1991, and delivery was completed in December 1996. A total of 20 C-130T Aircraft have been delivered to the Naval Reserve Force. Two C-130T Aircraft were transferred to NAVAIRWARCENACDIV Patuxent River, Maryland, for F/A-18E/F in-flight test support. In FY00, these two aircraft should return, one each, to Fleet Logistics Support Squadron (VR)-55 and VR-62 in the Naval Reserve Fleet. Therefore, by FY00, five C-130T Aircraft will be assigned to each of the following squadrons:

    • VR-53, Andrews Air Force Base (AFB), Maryland
    • VR-54, Naval Air Station (NAS) New Orleans, Louisiana
    • VR-55, Moffett Federal Airfield, California
    • VR-62, NAS Brunswick, Maine

4. Significant Interfaces. NA

5. New Features, Configurations, or Material. NA

H. CONCEPTS

1. Operational Concept. The C-130T Aircraft is operated by a crew of five; two officer and three enlisted aircrew personnel consisting of a pilot, copilot, radio operator-loadmaster, flight engineer, and flight attendant.

2. Maintenance Concept. Maintenance on the C-130T Aircraft consists of preventive and corrective maintenance per the Naval Aviation Maintenance Program, OPNAV Instruction 4790.2G. Maintenance is conducted under a three-level concept; organizational, intermediate, and depot.

a. Organizational. Assigned personnel in support of day-to-day operations to maintain the aircraft in a mission capable status perform organizational level maintenance actions. C-130T Aircraft organizational level maintenance is performed by aviation ratings with Navy Enlisted Classification (NEC) 8318, C-130 System Organizational Maintenance Technician. Maintenance consists of Preventive Maintenance (PM) and Corrective Maintenance (CM).

(1) Preventive Maintenance. PM consists of periodic prescribed inspections and servicing of the C-130T Aircraft systems accomplished on a phase, sortie, or hours of operation basis. PM requirements are set forth on Maintenance Requirement Cards.

(2) Corrective Maintenance. Organizational maintenance personnel perform CM on an as occurring basis. Personnel use various troubleshooting methods, including equipment built-in test to fault isolate discrepant systems. Faulty aircraft system Weapons Replaceable Assemblies (WRA) are removed and replaced or repaired on the aircraft per the appropriate Maintenance Instruction Manual. Faulty C-130T Aircraft system WRAs, which are not repaired at the organizational level, are transferred to intermediate maintenance level for repair, or to the depot for repair or disposition.

b. Intermediate. Intermediate maintenance actions are those normally performed in support of users. These actions include repair, test, and modification of aeronautical equipment, calibration of support equipment, and disposition of assets from stricken aircraft. Intermediate maintenance is performed to verify faulty WRAs and fault isolate to a Shop Replaceable Assembly and/or component using the appropriate test equipment. Intermediate maintenance support of C-130T Aircraft systems is performed at an Aircraft Intermediate Maintenance Department located at the VR squadron's home base.

c. Depot. Depot level maintenance is supported by organic C-130T Aircraft rework facilities. The Fleet Support Team for C-130T Aircraft is Naval Aviation Depot Cherry Point, North Carolina.

d. Interim Maintenance. NA

e. Life-Cycle Maintenance Plan. The C-130T Aircraft is periodically inspected and reworked during its life-cycle, through the Standard Depot Level Maintenance (SDLM) program. The C-130T Aircraft SDLM is currently accomplished at Hill AFB, Ogden, Utah.

3. Manning Concept. Manpower requirements to support the C-130T Aircraft have been established based on the requirements of the Reserve VR's mission. Activity Manpower Documents (AMD) providing detailed information about VR manpower are available:

Billets detailed in the AMDs consist of both Training and Administration of the Naval Reserve (TAR) and Selected Reserve (SELRES) personnel.

4. Training Concept. Training requirements identified in this NTSP are necessary to sustain mobilization readiness of the Reserve VR. Formal training requirements are identical for TAR and SELRES personnel and satisfy billet qualitative requirements. This training is centered on those formal courses that must be completed for supporting the C-130T Aircraft operational and maintenance requirements. TAR personnel are required to complete their formal training prior to reporting to the VR. SELRES personnel, upon reporting aboard, receive Squadron Indoctrination prior to formal mobilization training. SELRES formal training is completed during annual training and Active Duty Training periods. Maintaining SELRES billet qualification requirements will be accomplished during the normal weekend drills and annual two-week training period. Annual Training Input Requirements, shown in Parts II and III of this NTSP, are based upon a three year rotation cycle with ten percent attrition for enlisted, and zero percent attrition for officer personnel.

SELRES personnel may earn maintenance NECs by attending formal training at NAMTRAGRU DETs, provided a quota and funding are available, and the student is available to attend the training. Specific guidelines are contained in NAVPERS 18068F Volume II, Chapter IV, Navy Enlisted Classifications.

The established training concept for most aviation maintenance training divides "A" School courses into two or more segments called Core and Strand. The "C" School courses are also divided into separate Initial and Career training courses. "A" School Core courses include general knowledge and skills training for the particular rating, while "A" School Strand courses focus on the more specialized training requirements for that rating and a specific aircraft or equipment, based on the student's fleet activity destination. Strand training immediately follows Core training and is part of the "A" School. Upon completion of Core and Strand "A" School, graduates attend the appropriate Initial "C" School for additional specific training. Initial "C" School training is intended for students in paygrades E-4 and below. Career "C" School training is provided for E-5 and above personnel to enhance skills and knowledge within their field.

Training track titles and lengths depicted throughout this document were obtained from the latest available OPNAV Aviation Training Management System (OATMS) data. In cases where the training track title or track length differ by training location, the track model manager data was used. Information regarding these differences may be obtained from OPNAV, code N889H2B.

a. Initial Training. NA

b. Follow-on Training. C-130T follow-on aircrew and maintenance training is in place. Reserve C-130T pilots attend contracted commercial C-130 training at Hercules Flight Training Center, Marietta, Georgia. Naval Air Warfare Center Training Systems Division, Orlando, Florida, administers contract N61339-94-D-0002. Because of varying degrees of availability for training and previous qualifications, reserve enlisted aircrew are trained using a variety of methods. C-130T Flight Engineers are trained either at existing military facilities (method one), at Little Rock AFB, Little Rock, Arkansas, or commercial facilities (method two), at Hercules Flight Training Center. C-130T Flight Engineers attending the commercial training are SELRES who were previously qualified as Flight Engineers in another aircraft community. C-130T Loadmasters are trained using courses at Little Rock AFB (method one), or through course R-553-3000 (method two) at COMFLELOGSUPPWING, Fort Worth. C-130T Loadmasters attending course R-553-3000 are SELRES who are unable, because of time constraints, to attend the longer military course at Little Rock AFB. C-130T Flight Attendants are trained locally at each VR using a self-paced course, R-050-8289. The time to qualify as a C-130T Aircraft Flight Attendant varies depending upon the motivation of the individual candidate. Qualification times range from three to 18 months. Enlisted maintenance personnel are trained at existing Maintenance Training Units (MTU) assigned to the various Naval Air Maintenance Training Group Detachments (NAMTRAGRU DET).

d. Training Pipelines. Existing maintenance training tracks listed under Follow-on Training, paragraph H.4.b., are available in the OATMS. No new tracks or track modifications are needed to support the C-130T Aircraft.

I. ON-BOARD (IN-SERVICE) TRAINING

1. Proficiency or Other Training Organic to the New Development. Training for the C-130T Aircraft is current. Reserve aircrews receive training through a commercial contract administered by Naval Air Warfare Center Training Systems Division, Orlando, Florida, or at existing military facilities. Commercial pilot and flight engineer training is conducted by Hercules Flight Training Center, Marietta, Georgia. Enlisted maintenance personnel are trained at a variety of Naval Air Maintenance Training Group Detachment Maintenance Training Units using existing facilities and courses. This NTSP does not change existing training courses. The Commander, Fleet Logistic Support Wing, Fort Worth, Texas, coordinates VR training requirements.

a. Maintenance Training Improvement Program. The Maintenance Training Improvement Program (MTIP) is used to establish an effective and efficient training system responsive to fleet training requirements. MTIP is a training management tool that, through diagnostic testing, identifies individual training deficiencies at the organizational and intermediate levels of maintenance. MTIP is the comprehensive testing of one's knowledge. It consists of a bank of test questions managed through automated data processing. The Deputy Chief of Staff for Training assisted in development of MTIP by providing those question banks (software) already developed by the Navy. MTIP was implemented per OPNAVINST 4790.2 series. MTIP allows increased effectiveness in the application of training resources through identification of skills and knowledge deficiencies at the activity, work center, or individual technician level. Refresher training is concentrated where needed to improve identified skill and knowledge shortfalls. MTIP will be replaced by Aviation Maintenance In-Service Training (AMIST) in FY00.

C-130T Aircraft MTIP questions and answer banks, along with the courseware, are available. MTIP materials are based upon Section II of the Task and Skills Analysis Report. Questions are indexed to Work Unit Codes and curriculum learning objective numbers (where applicable).

b. Aviation Maintenance In-Service Training. Aviation Maintenance In-Service Training (AMIST) is intended to support the Fleet training requirements now satisfied by MTIP, and in that sense is the planned replacement. However, it is structured very differently, and will function as an integral part of the new Aviation Maintenance Training Continuum System (AMTCS) that will replace the existing aviation maintenance training structure. AMIST will provide standardized instruction to bridge the training gaps between initial and career training. With implementation of AMIST, technicians will be provided the training required to maintain a level of proficiency necessary to effectively perform the required tasks to reflect career progression. AMIST will begin when funding becomes available in FY00.

c. Aviation Maintenance Training Continuum System. AMTCS will redesign the aviation training process (training continuum), and introduce CBT throughout the Navy technical training process. The application and adoption of recent advances in computer hardware and software technology will enable CBT, with its basic elements of Computer Managed Instruction, Computer Aided Instruction, and Interactive Courseware, to be integrated into the training continuum and provide essential support for standardizing technical training.

2. Personnel Qualification Standards. NA
