Naval Aviation has experienced extensive change in recent years. Financial constraints, force reductions, and increasing operation tempo have impacted not only the material condition of Naval aircraft, but also the personnel who maintain them. The Naval Aviation Community has extensively studied the role of human factors in aviation mishaps. However, the need to study the impact of human factors in maintenance on part failures remains. As replacement parts for aircraft continue to rise in price, the need to mitigate the unnecessary failure/destruction of piece parts is an ever increasing priority. This study examines the relationship between part failures and human factors by comparing incident rates between VR Wing with the rest of Naval Aviation. Five hundred safety incident reports are analyzed; fiscal year totals are determined, and an incident per flying hour rate is computed. Regression results indicate an increasing trend in human factors related arts incidents, VR compares no different from the rest of Naval Aviation.
