The availability of the KC-135 Stratotanker as a tanker asset is vital to today's warfighter. Boeing performs programmed depot maintenance (PDM) for the U.S. Air Force's fleet of KC-135 tankers. Conducted every five years, scheduled PDM services include depot-level inspections, repairs, maintenance, modifications, re-painting and supply chain services. Leveraging more than 80 years of tanker manufacturing and maintenance experience and lean manufacturing initiatives, Boeing has reduced the number of days the aircraft are out of service while reducing cost per aircraft for the U.S. Air Force.
