Availability as MTBF/(MTBF+MTTR) or operational availability as MTBF/(MTBF+MDT) must be a statistic airlines use for their fleets or for a particular aircraft. Having exhausted any other avenues would anyone know how an airline figures this number or what it might typically be for say, American 727's or Northwest DC-10's? The subject is of interest in the spacecraft industry now; in particular the RLV project by NASA/Industry (my concern here...) Thanks anyone.
