Air Force to consolidate F-22 depot maintenance at Hill

5/29/2013 - WRIGHT-PATTERSON AFB, Ohio -- The Air Force today announced it is consolidating depot maintenance for the F-22 Raptor at the Ogden Air Logistics Complex at Hill AFB, Utah.

The depot maintenance work is currently split between the Ogden ALC and the Lockheed facility in Palmdale, Calif.

"Palmdale has made a storied contribution to aviation and while this move makes sense, we are certain this important workforce will continue strongly supporting the Air Force at Palmdale for many years to come," said Lt. Gen. C.D. Moore II, Air Force Life Cycle Management Center commander.

In today's fiscal environment it is important that every available resource is efficiently managed in order to achieve maximum return on investments.

The Air Force conducted a comprehensive business case analysis and determined a consolidation of all F-22 work at Ogden ALC would reduce costs while realizing greater efficiencies, a minimum cost savings of over $16 million per year.

"The facts show this will be a great efficiency for the F-22 program and the warfighter," stated General Moore. "It will allow us to more quickly maintain the F-22 keeping this vital front-line fighter ready to meet any challenge, while at the same time allow us to strengthen the robust and capable Palmdale workforce on other critical programs within the local area."

The Air Force has developed a 31-month incremental transition plan to complete the F-22 depot maintenance consolidation activities.
