Reduce flying hours to save Millions!

With the average cost of an F-16 sortie over 1million dollars when you include all the supporting equipment, parts, fuel, man power and such the best way to save money would be to cut down on flying. If they cut flying down by even 1 day a month for every fighter/flying squadron Air Force wide and made it a maintenance catch up day or something like that not only would they save hundreds of Millions of dollars a month but it would decrease stress and increase moral across the maintenance world.

I agree to have my idea, not my name or information, posted online. YES
