Historically, the U.S. Navy has utilized Full Mission Capable (FMC) as the standard metric in assessing aviation readiness, but an alternative to FMC has been introduced by air wing commanders: Ready for Tasking (RFT). RFT is a less demanding standard for readiness that provides a better representation of mission success than FMC. Since FMC is used as an input to aviation repairable sparing models, before RFT can replace FMC in funding models it is necessary to analyze the linkage between RFT and FMC. This thesis explores the relationship between RFT and FMC based on five years of data from the East Coast Carrier Air Wings flying F/A-18E/F Super Hornets. Linear and logistic regression models are developed to analyze the impacts 11 common variables have on RFT. It also examines readiness trends throughout the Fleet Response Training Plan.
