An Abstract of an Analysis: The Effect of the Airframe Manufacturer's Cost on the Cost of Aircraft Ownership 650370
IN MOST INDUSTRIES, costs of operation are cut by standardization and increased unit production. The aircraft industry, however, has four unique factors, each of which enters into efforts to reduce the cost of airplane ownership. These are: The degree of federal regulation, the high cost of handcraftsmanship even on an assembly line, the value of parts reduction, and activity of the airplane operator, himself.
