    Key Maintenance Indicators United States Air Forces standard
  • 81 % - Mission Capapble - Percentage of aircraft readily available to do the mission.
  • 15 % - Not Mission Capable for Maintenance - Percentage not mission capable for maintenance reasons.
  • 9 % - Not Mission Capable for Supply - Percentage not mission capable for supply reasons.
  • 6 % - Abort Rate - Rate of aircraft that cannot fly sorties due to ground or air abort.
  • 19 % - Break Rate - Number of Code 3s divided by total number of sorties flown. Different aircraft codes indicate mission capability upon completion of a sortie: Code One is mission capable. Code 2 is an aircraft with a problem but is still mission capable. Code 3 is an aircraft not mission capable until problem is fixed.
  • 75 % - Fix Rate - Percentage of Code 3 aircraft fixed in eight-hour period.
  • 18 % - Cannibilization Rate - Percentage of cannibalizations (parts taken from one aircraft to fix another) divided by number of sorties.
  • 9 % - Repeat/Recur Rate - Percentage of repeats or recurs divided by total of pilot-reported discrepancies.
  • 95 % - Maintenance Scheduling Effectiveness Rate - Percentage of maintenance scheduling actions done on time.
  • 88 % - Flying Scheduling Effectiveness Rate - Ability to fly selected aircraft without deviation
  • Armament
