    Several of its sites, such as at Suisun Bay in Californiaare also used to store regular Navy ships. These Liberty Ships were also used as the navy's support vessel for its fleet of warships and to ferry forces across the Pacific and Atlantic. Those services provided in support of the Civil Reserve Air Fleet contract, whereby contractors provide personnel, training, supervision, equipment, facilities, supplies and any items and services necessary to perform international long-range and short-range airlift services during peacetime and during CRAF activation in support of the Department of Defense DoD. Pacific Command's area of responsibility, specific to Alaska needs. When notified of call-up, the carrier response time to have its aircraft ready for a Civil Reserve Air Fleet mission is 24, 48, and 72 hours after the mission is assigned by AMC.

    This paper will provide a brief explanation of the purpose of the CRAF, its history, the effectiveness of the program, and a quick look towards the future of the CRAF. Participating carriers. Young Americans have historically been the least involved in politics, despite the huge consequences policies can have on them. These include safety preflight inspections of commercial aircraft by DOD designated inspectors and periodic cockpit observations on operational flights by highly experienced pilots from AMC's DOD Commercial Airlift Division. Aircraft class. Though not officially activated, the CRAF is currently supporting Operation Iraqi Freedom, providing nearly double the amount of aircraft that the DoD has estimated for its most demanding war strategies.

    There are minimum required levels of participation in order for the airlines to be eligible, and in turn they receive peace time business including passenger and cargo movement approximately in proportion to their commitment level. These aircraft are also used to return medical supplies and medical crews to the theater of operations. This section will discuss the main incentive the airlines receive for participation in the program, the three main segments of CRAF, and will provide an explanation of the three stages of activation of the CRAF. Safety is the paramount concern, and numerous procedures are in effect to ensure that the air carriers with which AMC contracts afford the highest level of safety to DOD passengers. These numbers are subject to change on a monthly basis.

The Air Force said one change concerns initial commitment of aircraft. Although DOD has taken steps to make more airlift business available to CRAF participants, officials said that overseas operations have provided enough missions to support both training and CRAF business obligations.

Transportation Command in conjunction with the Air Mobility Command agreed to adapt the Commander's Apportionment and Allocation Planning CAAP process, which according to DOD, is a planning process, and the mechanism to track and quantify the degree to which commercial airlift is being used.

As a result, DOD may be using its military fleet more than necessary--which officials say is less economical--while risking reduced CRAF participation. However, due to changing military strategy and priorities, the study does not reflect current mission needs.

They can be activated and given as little as hours notice to be ready to move military forces and equipment to anywhere in the world. The role of these aircraft is to augment the Air Mobility Command's long-range intertheater C-5s and Cs during periods of increased airlift needs, from minor contingencies up through full national defense emergencies.

Having been deployed overseas many times with the Air Force, I clearly remember seeing all those civilian tails mixed in with the military aircraft at locations off-limits to typical civilian flights.

The Civil Reserve Air Fleet

Prior to receiving a contract, all carriers must demonstrate that they have provided substantially equivalent and comparable commercial service for one year before submitting their offer to fly for the Defense Department.

There are 36 aircraft in the national segment. Would you like to join our advisory group to work with us on the future of GovTrack? The following pages are an investigation various aspects of the Civil Reserve Air Fleet such as its purpose, history, and effectiveness. This includes aircraft in the international segment in the long-range international section and in the short- range international section.

Also, the carriers are guaranteed their committed aircraft will get 12 hours of use daily during the activation period. The aircraft in the Alaskan section provide airlift within U.

Military Airlift:

The international segment is further divided into the long-range and short-range sections and the national segment satisfies domestic requirements. This team conducts a comprehensive inspection that includes the carrier's aircraft, training facilities, crew qualifications, maintenance procedures and quality control practices.

Participating carriers commit their aircraft to support a range of military operations in exchange for peacetime business. Assignment of aircraft to a segment depends on the nature of the requirement and the performance characteristics needed.

The long-range international section consists of passenger and cargo aircraft capable of transoceanic operations. They are the behind-the-scenes enabler that choreographs complicated logistics challenges. Our public interest mission means we will never put our service behind a paywall.

This team conducts a comprehensive inspection that includes the carrier's aircraft, training facilities, crew qualifications, maintenance procedures and quality control practices. The program is divided into three segments which include varying amounts and sizes of aircraft that serve specific purposes.

GAO assessed whether DOD 1 met its military airlift training requirements while also using CRAF participants to the maximum extent practicable, 2 provided justification for restricting commercial carriers from transporting partial plane loads of cargo over certain routes, and 3 has established future requirements for CRAF and how the planned size of CRAF compares to those requirements.

International Segment - Long Range.

The Civil Reserve Air Fleet:

Carriers with aircraft whose performance does not meet minimum Civil Reserve Air Fleet requirements are issued a certificate of technical ineligibility so they can still compete for government airlift business.

Young Americans have historically been the least involved in politics, despite the huge consequences policies can have on them. The fleet originally consisted of about 60 ships, most of which were gradually towed away for scrapping.

To join Civil Reserve Air Fleet, carriers must maintain a minimum commitment of 40 percent of its Civil Reserve Air Fleet capable passenger and cargo fleet.
