This thesis uses cost estimation techniques and computer models to analyze complex issues associated with upgrading the Navy's helicopter trainer, the TH-57, which is approaching its service life limit. A decision regarding a TH-57 upgrade is needed to support the current training syllabus. The analysis revealed that without a comprehensive long range plan, the Training Command will ultimately face a no-win situation; that is, reducing either its pilot training rate or syllabus flight hours. A pilot training rate reduction will create a shortfall of fleet pilots and a flight hour reduction may adversely impact flight training quality. The problems identified in the Chief of Naval Air Training's Tentative Operational Requirement were addressed. Several aircraft configurations were evaluated and four recommendations were made to ensure an effective upgrade.
