The authors develop a mathematical programming method to make a weekly flight schedule for the ASW helicopter SH-60J in a squadron of the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force (JMSDF). The targets of the scheduling are four missions: skill training, emergency ready, maintenance of skill, and the assignment of instructor or support crew on training flights. The schedule determines flight mission, crew members as trainee, instructor or other duties, and seat of the crew in the real flight and the simulator training. In many JMSDF squadrons, some specialists spend much time to achieve a feasible and equitable schedule. The proposed method would approximately decrease the workload of them by one-thirtieth.
