NATIONAL Harbor, Md. -- The Naval Air Systems Command's Fleet Readiness Centers have eliminated the backlog of aircraft awaiting depot-level repairs and met production goals for the last two years, according to Martin Ahmad, deputy commander, Fleet Readiness Centers.

Ahmad briefed the Naval Aviation Enterprise and COMFRC's recent and future initiatives at the Sea Air Space Exposition April 10. Motivated by a sense of urgency and our near-peer competitors, COMFRC is focused on delivering readiness, he said.

Ahmad said that partnerships with the Defense Logistics Agency and Navy Supply Systems Command, Weapon Systems Support, which supply materials and parts, and type commanders and program managers are also vital to the Navy’s success.
