Homeland Security Considers Replacing Military Aircraft with Commercial Planes

The Department of Homeland Security may soon replace cheaper commercial planes with military aircraft to absorb 8.2% in budget cuts in March, Popular Science reports.

The department was exploring buying used aircraft from the military but discovered that it’s more inexpensive to use commercial planes, Popular Science wrote.

Commercial aircraft is more inexpensive because of the sheer number of available airplanes. Replacement parts are cheaper, and maintenance is more inexpensive, Popular Science reported.

One option is the Super King Air 350, which is fuel efficient, able to take off on short runways and has a 1,500-mile range, according to Popular Science.
