Abstract
Since the enactment of Title 10, Section 2403 of the United States Code in 1985, written warranty clauses have been mandated for the procurement of all major weapon systems. This thesis discusses the aircraft engine warranty program established by the Naval Air Systems Command in response to that warranty legislation. Warranty procedures and issues are examined during procurement, contract negotiations, and in the daily operations of the fleet. The aircraft engine warranty program of a major commercial airline (United Airlines) is presented to allow the reader to form a basis from which to make program comparisons. Those areas in which a commercial warranty may be applicable to a military environment are described and analyzed. Conclusions are drawn concerning the effectiveness of the Navy's warranty program and recommendations are suggested for improvements and/or follow on studies.
