Aircraft Types and Equipment Supported The number and type of aircraft, including major equipment to be supported at the time of AVCAL or re-AVCAL, include all aircraft currently on station. Any additional aircraft or systems (numbers and/or types) whose initial Navy support will occur within 6 months after the requisition drop date must also be included in the AVCAL or re-AVCAL product. Flight Hours Anticipated The number of flight hours anticipated during a given period must be known before any effective planning can be done. The NAVAIR 00-35QB series of outfitting list shows the quantity, by aircraft type, of each item based on the number of anticipated flight hours. In addition, there are several components that must be changed after a stated number of flight hours. These items are referred to as high-time removal. These items vary with aircraft type and modification. Each item designated as a high-time component has a service record card (SRC) with it. The SRC is attached to each component at all times except when the component is installed in an aircraft. Aircraft engines are prime examples. Before a squadron reports for an extended deployment, you need to know how many engines will require change because of high time during the deployment. Normally, you add one or two additional engines to replace those that are damaged by FOD or contamination and arrive at the total number of engines that will be required. The total number of engines to be carried on board to support the air wing will be determined by the TYCOM, based on recommendations of the ship and air wing. Stock Objective The stock objective is usually stated in terms of 90-day increments. Stock levels at ashore activities are set for each category of material by the controlling item manager (IM). Stock levels afloat are set by the type or area commander. AVCAL Schedule Ships will be re-AVCAL’d before each deployment. Supplemental AVCALs to handle the addition or deletion of an entire aircraft type, or major avionics systems, will be provided upon request by the user and endorsement by the TYCOM. The AVCAL schedule is a listing of actions required by applicable activities in relation to the number of days before the work-up schedule. Refer to FASOINST 4441.15 for complete AVCAL schedule of mile- stones. Source Documents The AVCAL process begins with the creation of deployment schedules and configuration planning. Upon notification that a ship is scheduled for deployment, an outfitting directive is published by the cognizant TYCOM. The directive contains information relative to the planned material requirements and configuration of aircraft to be embarked for deployment. The Aircraft Equipment and Configuration List (AECL) is the foundation of the outfitting directive. The AECL is verified for completeness and accuracy by the functional wing commanders. The outfitting directive is issued by the TYCOM to the operating site (OPSITE) and to NAVICP-Phil. The outfitting directive will specify aircraft and engine models and numbers of each model to be supported, monthly flying hours for each model, and the required date of receipt of final ship AVCAL output products. Upon receipt of the directive, NAVICP-Phil will verify aircraft deckload and flying hours with the weapons system planning document (WSPD) and will negotiate changes with the TYCOM, as required. To ensure adequate piece part support for end items of SE, NAVICP-Phil will review the IMRL for deckload applicability. Past actual flying hours used in requirements calculations are derived from the CNO aircraft flight data series reports. Demand-based activity requirements that are extracted from the Ship’s AVCAL Asset Tape (SAVAST) are accessed during the AVCAL requirements determination process. Responsibilities The following paragraphs describe the TYCOM, NAVICP-Phil, and ship’s responsibilities for the AVCAL process. TYCOM.— The functions of the applicable TYCOM concerning the AVCAL are as follows: l Submit proposed AVCAL schedules to the NAVICP-Phil approximately 6 months before the beginning of each fiscal year with updates as they occur. The schedule will identify the ship to be outfitted and planned deckloads 1 year in advance. 4-22
