EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

This preliminary draft of the Navy Training Systems Plan provides an estimate of manpower, personnel, and training requirements to support the employment concepts currently in use for the VH-60N Helicopter, henceforth called VH-60N. The VH-60N has been in use for approximately 12 years and is a helicopter transport for the President of the United States, Vice President, and other visiting heads of state. It has seating provisions for 10 passengers and the aircrew consists of a pilot, co-pilot, crewchief, and a communication system operator. As an executive transport, it has an interior suitable for executive travel and receives extensive care and maintenance exceeding normal standards to keep the aircraft in superior condition. The VH-60N can be folded quickly, in less than two hours, for loading and storage onto an Air Force C-5A/B, and C-17, allowing for transport on short notice. It is also capable of being loaded onto an Air Force B, C-130, and C-141. Marine Helicopter Squadron One, henceforth referred to as HMX-1, is the sole helicopter support for executive transport throughout the United States and overseas.

VH-60N is in Phase III, Production, Deployment, and Operational Support phase of its life cycle. The VH-60N is expected to remain in service until the year 2015, after which a determination will be made whether it should undergo a Service Life Extension Program, which could potentially extend it's life to the year 2025. Naval Air System Command contracts for instruction of pilots, communication system operators, and maintenance personnel at the squadron in HMX-1 Quantico, Virginia for the VH-60N. No specific military aircrew or maintenance training exists for the VH-60N. On 26 November, 1995, the Secretary of Defense directed the Department of the Navy to procure a VH helicopter pilot simulator for HMX-1. A contract to procure the VH-60N Aircrew Proficiency Trainer was awarded in April 2000.

HMX-1 has an outstanding safety record. Increased operational tempo has made it a challenge to meet the training requirements of personnel and the decreased availability of aircraft for training purposes. Although the overall training program is sufficient in many areas, recommendations for improvement are noted in the Training Concept of this document. Particular attention is given to utilizing technology to allow modular lesson formats and Interactive Multimedia Instruction as well as providing a Composite Maintenance Training Device for hands on learning.

H. CONCEPTS

1. Operational Concept. The VH-60N has been in operation for approximately 12 years and is designed as an executive transport. The aircrew consists of a pilot, co-pilot, communications system operator, and crewchief. When on a mission, the detachment is completely self-contained, supported by dedicated aircrew, maintenance, technical representatives, security personnel and logistics. In addition to its Executive air support role, it also provides support for emergency evacuation, development of new systems, and training of new helicopter tactics.

2. Maintenance Concept. The Maintenance Concept for the VH-60N is based on three levels of maintenance as stated in the Naval Maintenance Program Manual, Office of Chief of Naval Operations Instructions (OPNAVINST) 4790 series, organizational, intermediate, and depot.

Maintenance at Marine Helicopter Squadron One (HMX-1) is organized into two separate departments; the Executive Aircraft Maintenance and United States Marine Corps (USMC) Aircraft Maintenance. The Executive Aircraft Maintenance also known as the "Whiteside" or "Cage" maintenance will henceforth be referred to as the Whiteside in this document. The USMC Maintenance Aircraft Department, also known as the "Greenside" or "Stake" maintenance will henceforth be referred to as the Greenside in this document. The Whiteside maintenance department maintains the VH-60N.

a. Organizational. The organizational level maintenance consists of those maintenance actions normally performed by an operating activity in support of its day-to-day operations. Due to the highly structured missions of executive transport, aircraft configuration is tightly controlled.

(1) Preventive Maintenance. Preventive Maintenance consists of scheduled inspections and servicing at specific intervals as required by the applicable Maintenance Requirements Cards (MRC) procedures and is performed by the Squadron's Flight Line, Airframe, and Avionics Maintenance personnel. For the VH-60N, these inspections are performed in four phases after every 150 hours of flight. Preventive actions performed on the aircraft include corrosion inspection, wiping down the outside of the aircraft by hand after each flight regardless of flight time, lubrication and servicing, and daily/turnaround and special inspections.

(2) Corrective Maintenance. Corrective Maintenance is unscheduled and consists of fault isolation, repair, and replacement of components when verified as faulty. Built-In Test or test sets are used on the appropriate systems to determine if certain parts or assemblies are in need of repair or replacement. The Squadron's Flight Line, Airframe, and Avionics Maintenance Personnel perform these actions.

b. Intermediate. Intermediate level maintenance is performed on those Weapon Replacement Assemblies and Shop Replaceable Assemblies beyond the capability of the organizational maintenance level activity. These assemblies are more specialized and complex requiring a higher level of skill to repair the faulty component. Limited Intermediate Level (I Level) maintenance support is provided for non-flight critical items. A local intermediate component repair list is published detailing components that are test and check, limited repair, repaired at the I Level. Facilities at Naval Air Station (NAS) Patuxent River, Maryland are used for selected VH-60N avionics. Component repairs beyond the capabilities of this facility are forwarded to the appropriate contracted Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM). There is an I Level engine shop in the Whiteside facility that performs I Level functions on T-700 engines and T62 Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) and assists in Organizational Level tasks performed by other shops. Components and assemblies requiring maintenance above the capabilities of the squadron are sent to OEM facilities for repair. Replacement parts are acquired from contracted OEM. Special clearances and inspection processes are in place to maintain the security of VH components and the integrity of the closed loop VH supply system.

c. Depot. Depot level maintenance consists of major overhaul of the aircraft or the rebuilding, manufacture, and modification of parts, assemblies, and subassemblies beyond the capabilities of the Intermediate Maintenance Activity. Scheduled Depot maintenance occurs at the expiration of 28 months or 2,400 flight hours, whichever comes first, and is done by the OEM.

d. Interim Maintenance. NA

e. Life-Cycle Maintenance Plan. The plan requires that the VH-60N undergoes a Special Progressive Aircraft Rework (SPAR) every 1,600 hours flight time or 30 months, whichever comes first. SPAR is an enhanced version of the Standard Depot Level Maintenance and includes partial disassembly of the airframe, replacement of components, refurbishment of interior furnishings, and repainting the aircraft. The requirements are outlined in the revised SPAR Specification Manual in accordance with Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIRSYSCOM) Instruction 4710.1. The VH-60N has a service life of 10,000 flight hours and will remain in service until approximately 2015. A determination will be made whether to place the VH-60N under Service Life Extension Program, which could extend the lifetime of the helicopter.

3. Manning Concept. HMX-1 is the largest permanently formed aircraft squadron in the Marine Corps. The major divisions within the unit encompass: Administration, Operations, Logistics, Department of Safety and Standardization (DSS), White House Liaison Office, Executive Alert Facility, Plans, Security, Communications, Fiscal, Aviation Supply, Operational Test & Evaluation, Whiteside, and Greenside.

Specific Military Occupational Specialties (MOSs) do not exist for the VH-60N since the training is done by a contractor, rather than the military. Personnel who are assigned to operate and maintain the VH-60N are selected from the population of marine forces aviation maintenance personnel and do not have any previous experience on the platform. Personnel are specifically recruited for HMX-1 and usually spend a year on the Greenside while intensive background investigations are conducted by appropriate Department of Defensive agencies. Once personnel are given appropriate clearance and access, they are eligible for transfer to the Whiteside.

The number of detachments varies according to the number of missions. Each detachment is self-contained and supported by dedicated aircrew, maintenance, technical representatives, security personnel and logistics for the duration of the event in compliance with the Standard Operating Procedures in the Whiteside Trip Leader Manual.

4. Training Concept. There are no specific Navy Training Schools, "A", "C", or Fleet Replacement Enlistment Skills Training, in existence for the VH-60N maintenance shop personnel. The VH platform job familiarization process is heavily dependent upon On-the-Job-Training (OJT). All aircraft familiarization and mission training are handled on the squadron level, with the exception of the pilots, who may complete simulator training at NAS Jacksonville, Florida. HMX-1 currently contracts all initial and follow-on training of the VH-60N to an external Training Contractor (TC).

Pilot: Flight scheduling is a very involved process in a squadron that has 75 pilots on-hand and flies four different Type/Model/Series (TMS) helicopter. The TMS helicopters currently Primary Aircraft Authorization are the VH-3D, VH-60N, CH-53E, and CH-46E. Only the first two are flown for the "Whiteside." The majority of pilots are qualified on three platforms.

The squadron does not have access to any aircraft simulators at HMX-1 Quantico, Virginia. The HMX-1 pilots use the Navy simulators located at NAS Jacksonville, Florida that belong to the Command Helicopter Anti-Submarine Wing Atlantic Fleet squadron. Pilots may receive training in standard fleet SH-60 and SH-3 simulators prior to commencing VH syllabus. After that, pilots receive only annual refresher training in both simulators. On 26 November 1995, the Secretary of Defense directed the Department of the "Navy to procure a VH helicopter pilot simulator for HMX-1. A contract to procure the VH-60N Aircrew Proficiency Trainer (APT) was awarded in April 2000.

Aircrew: Aircrew Coordination Training (ACT) is the Naval Aviation term for Crew Resource Management. Three officers implement the ACT program at HMX-1 after they receive ACT instructor designation by attending the Navy's instructor's course at NAS Pensacola, Florida.

Formal documented training is conducted at two safety stand-downs each year. The training includes lectures and videotapes in combined pilot and aircrew sessions. Pilots and aircrew are evaluated on ACT skills annually during instrument written exams and check flights.

The DSS and Operations (OPS) monitor and track all aircrew qualifications for the squadron. DSS publishes a monthly 30-60-90 day report that goes to OPS and the Commanding Officer for upcoming instrument and Naval Air Training and Operation Procedures Standardization (NATOPS) defined checkrides.

Maintenance: Maintenance training is provided at HMX-1 Quantico, Virginia and attended by approximately 183 personnel per year who have not had any prior experience on this specific platform, 25 % arriving directly from school after recruit training. Due to the operational requirements, missions, and scheduled depot maintenance events, training is impacted by not having aircraft available for OJT, and by disrupting the class schedule.

The Follow-on TC, in conjunction with HMX-1 directives, has designed and developed the curriculum content, classroom training aides, instructor guides and student manuals for traditional classroom familiarization training of pilots and maintenance personnel. The annual training schedule is set by the TC and modified by the squadron's mission load. Due to the squadron's mission requirements, rescheduling personnel for training is more the rule, rather than the exception. This environment of frequent mission requirements lends itself to a modular lesson format and Interactive Multimedia Instruction. Enhancing the training program would accomplish the following goals:

    • Maximize squadron operational safety
    • Ensure the rapid mastery of job tasks by pilot and maintainers
    • Provide the highest level of aircraft availability and crew readiness

Future Training Environment Description: The areas of future training enhancements for the HMX-1 Squadron are:

    • Initial Maintenance Training
    • Initial Pilot Aircraft Systems Training
    • Refresher Job Training
    • Specialized Aircraft Systems Training (e.g. new systems, Engineering Change Proposal, Airframes Bulletin, Avionics Change, etc.)
    • Deployable Training (e.g. Just-In-Time Training, virtual expert, remote support, etc.)

In addition, acquisition of the following Training Devices further supports the training goals.

Note: A contracted VH-60N Maintenance Trainer Specification was completed 14 Jan 00 for PMA 205, PMA-261, and HMX-1.

3. Other Onboard or In-Service Training Packages. Marine Corps onboard training is based on the current series of MCO P4790.12, Individual Training Standards System and Maintenance Training Management and Evaluation Program (MATMEP). This program is designed to meet Marine Corps, as well as Navy OPNAVINST 4790.2 series, maintenance training requirements. It is a performance-based, standardized, level-progressive, documentable, training management and evaluation program. It identifies and prioritizes task inventories by MOSs through a front-end analysis process that identifies task, skill, and knowledge requirements of each MOSs. MTIP questions coupled to MATMEP tasks will help identify training deficiencies that can be enhanced with refresher training. (MATMEP is planned to be replaced by Aviation Maintenance Continuum System.)
