Fleet Readiness Center Northwest


To enhance and sustain excellence in aviation warfighting capability and fleet readiness.

About Us

Fleet Readiness Center Northwest (FRCNW) is comprised of over 1,000 Sailors, DoD civilian, and contractor personnel. Military members are serving on shore duty, Sea Operational Detachment, Van Operational Detachment, and P-3 Operational Detachment in support of world-wide requirements. In addition to permanently assigned technicians, Naval Reservists receive mobilization training and contribute to the production effort during drill weekends.

FRCNW is the driving force behind multiple operational successes achieved by EA-18G, P-3C, EP-3E and P-8A warfighters engaged in OPERATION INHERENT RESOLVE (OIR) and the continued fight against terrorism. Meeting the challenge, FRCNW facilitated peak operational readiness of supported activities.

FRCNW continues to lead the Naval Aviation Enterprise in the transformation of Aviation Maintenance. FRCNW provides intermediate and depot level repair of over 12,500 different aviation components. Repair services are provided for jet engines, airframes, avionics, armament, aviation life support systems, ejection seats, and over 2,300 pieces of support equipment directly supporting 22 local and deployed squadrons, 10 aircraft carriers, 3 overseas operational sites and numerous Pacific Northwest Regional commands and activities.

As the Navy 's sole organic T56-A-14 engine First Degree repair facility, FRCNW is the primary producer of all P-3C and EP-3E engines and the only organic facility providing First Degree complete engine module repair. Capitalizing on manpower optimization and process improvements, FRCNW produced and shipped 34 engines in 2017 filling 71 percent of the fleet's demand.

Continuously seeking ways to improve effectiveness and efficiency through metric driven operations, FRCNW fosters a close productive relationship with Fleet war fighting customers to satisfy current and future maintenance requirements. Fleet Readiness Center Northwest is extremely proud of its outstanding heritage of supporting our Nation's war fighters.
