Posted August 04, 2019 04:08:59 American exchange will be able to trade in Virginia for Norfolk, Va.
The American exchange has been struggling to fill its inventory of Norfolk, Virginia-based aircraft, which it has been forced to cut back on due to a shortage of spare parts and parts shortages.
It announced the cutback in its August 29 quarterly report.
The U.S. military said the Navy Exchange will continue to ship its aircraft, but the Norfolk Naval Air Station will be unable to service its aircraft because it has not received enough spare parts.
The Navy Exchange has also been unable to ship spare parts to the Norfolk airport for the last several weeks due to high demand for them, a Navy official told Ars Technic.
“The Norfolk Naval Base and Norfolk Marine Air Station are currently unable to provide the services required for the maintenance and replacement of their fleets,” the Navy said in a statement.
The Norfolk Marine air station is also struggling to keep its fleet up to date.
“Naval Air Station Norfolk and the Norfolk Navy Exchange are currently working with the Navy to provide services required to meet the needs of the base, while the Norfolk Air Force Base and the Air Force Exchange will be required to make these services available at the air station,” the statement said.
“Additionally, Naval Air Force Headquarters will continue providing support to the Air Service Exchange through support of aircraft maintenance and repairs, including training.”
A source told Ars the Norfolk-based air station has been unable and unwilling to ship aircraft in order to meet its own production needs and has been cutting production.
The source also said the Norfolk naval base and Norfolk marine air station are also in dire straits.
“A lot of the ships are out of order. “
It’s a situation we’ve seen all across the country,” the source added.
“A lot of the ships are out of order.
They’re running out of spare part.”
A Naval Air Base spokesperson told Ars that Norfolk Naval Aviation “has a limited inventory of the Navy’s aircraft, including all non-essential aircraft, and is unable to satisfy their needs.”
Naval Air and Space Command spokesperson John Whitworth said Norfolk Naval Command “does not comment on any personnel personnel issues or pending procurements.”
A Norfolk Air and Marine Base spokesperson said the Air and Missile Defense Command has “no comment” on the Norfolk Norfolk Naval Airport’s production situation.
Norfolk Air Base said that Norfolk Marine has a limited supply of aircraft and is limited in the amount of spare aircraft that it can transport to Norfolk.
“Due to the nature of their current fleet, we are unable to supply the Airfield with aircraft in an expedited manner to meet their needs,” the spokesperson said in an email.
