Procurement can be expensive, so it is very important that the operator select only the required tools. Cost per Flying Hour (CPFH) is a metric used by the military services for different purposes, including measuring operating-and-support (O&S) costs of different aircraft.

When using this metric, there are several ways to normalize cost and usage : Michael Boito, Edward G Keating, John Wallace, Bradley DeBlois, Ilana Blum.
