Abstract This project is a cost benefit analysis of both the U.S. Navy Flight Demonstration Team and U.S. Navy Band (D.C.). We examined both operations' associated costs and benefits. Our methodology used established cost benefit analysis techniques in order to provide the Navy with information to determine whether the benefits of flight demonstrations to the public in support of recruiting are worth the costs of operating and maintaining all resources. The same cost benefit analysis techniques were used to determine whether the benefits of musical support to the President of the United States, the Department of Navy, and other senior military and government officials is worth the costs associated with operations of the Navy Band. We found that using the value of the recruiting leads as a benefit, against all associated costs, that the costs outweighed the benefits for both The Navy Flight Demonstration Team and the U.S. Navy Band (D.C.).
