aircraft utilization rate

Normally for transport and commercial aircraft, it is the average number of hours that an aircraft is actually in flight during each 24-h period or per month. For combat aircraft, the reckoning period is a month instead of 24 h (i.e., hours flown per aircraft per month). However, some air forces use the number of sorties instead of hours.
