108.4. Discuss the composition of a standard Carrier Air Wing
Carrier air wings consist of squadrons assigned by the Chief of Naval Operations
(CNO). The air wing is under the command of an air wing commander. Air wing
commanders report for duty to the commanding officer of the parent carrier. They
have tactical command of their wings during wing operations. When ship-based,

   108. Organization Structure fundamentals                     Page 5 of 10

the air wing commander exercises the rights conferred by U.S. Navy Regulations
on heads of departments. The air wing commander also has responsibilities
similar to that of a department head. These responsibilities include internal
administration of air wing personnel and material upkeep of assigned
spaces and aircraft. In matters concerning air department functions, the air
wing commander acts under the direction of the air department officer. Under the
direction of the operations officer, the commander cooperates in matters
concerning operations department functions. Air wings, squadrons, and units are
established aboard CV and CVN, LHA, and LHD types of ships. See figure 2-7.
Under the carrier commanding officer and the air wing commander, squadron
commanding officers maintain the squadron organization. See figure 2-8.

     An IMA comprises all departmental/organizational units responsible for
providing I-level maintenance support ashore and afloat. Normally an IMA
consists of the Aircraft Maintenance Department/Detachment, the Supply
Department, and the Weapons Department. The IMA is responsible for
performing I-level maintenance functions on the aircraft and aeronautical
equipment located at the ship or station supported. See figures 8-5, 8-6 for
organizational flow charts for I-level Ashore/Afloat.

108.10 Discuss the relationship between AIMD and supply.
Ref (a) COMNAVAIRFORINST 4790.2H, Vol I, Ch 18, NAMP
    A direct relationship between the two complex operations of maintenance
      and supply.
    Utilize a single point of contact for coordinating functions common to
    Success of material management depends largely on this coordinated
    Imperative that both supply and maintenance personnel be familiar with
      the responsibilities of each other.
    Material control branches are contact points for maintenance operations.
    ASD’s are contact points for supply operations

108.11 Discuss depot level activities and the customer services provided to
fleet activities.
Ref (a) COMNAVAIRFORINST 4790.2H, Vol I, Ch 7, NAMP
- D-level maintenance is performed at or by naval aviation industrial
establishments to ensure continued flying integrity of airframes and flight
systems during subsequent operational service periods. D-level maintenance is
also performed on material requiring major overhaul or rebuilding of parts,
assemblies, subassemblies, and end items. It includes manufacturing parts,
modifying, testing, inspecting, sampling, and reclamating. D-level
maintenance supports O-level and I-level maintenance by providing engineering
assistance and performing maintenance beyond their capabilities.
- D-level maintenance functions are in Volume II and general functions may be
grouped as follows:
 Aircraft SDLM (standard and special rework).
 Rework and repair of engines, components, and SE.
 Calibration by Navy calibration laboratories and NPSLs.
 Incorporation of TDs.
 Modification of aircraft, engines, and SE.
 Manufacture or modification of parts or kits.
 Technical and engineering assistance by field teams.
 (8) AE of aircraft and equipment under RCM.

108.12 Discuss the BFIMA policy:
Ref (g)
BFIMA is the Battle Force Intermediate Maintenance Activities. It has been
changed to the SFIMA (Strike Force Intermediate Maintenance
Activities). SFIMA is composed of all elements in the Strike Force capable
of performing maintenance beyond the organizational level. The function is
to operate and self-sustain the strike group at sea through the integration
of these resources. Each Strike Force establishes a SFIMA organization which
is tailored to meet the Strike Force’s requirements. Personnel selected can
receive specialized training to perform maintenance functions such as hose
repair, machinery repair, air conditioning repair, etc… Information on these
training courses and setting up of classes is available on ref (g). Once the
organization is trained and at sea, maintenance requirements are farmed out
around the Strike Group to whoever can perform the maintenance. The carrier

being the largest ship, with the most people, receives most of the SFIMA
requirements. The SFIMA coordinator tracks the maintenance and provides
reports upline monthly.
