  1. Boom latches Hydraulically operated by what system?
    No. 3 hydraulic system
  2. How does AR Slipway door (w/CP printer) open/close?
    • - Mechanically unlocked/opened by spring action
    • - Hyd closed by #3 hyd system
    • - Can be manually opened (not closed) w/T-handle in crew rest area
  3. What does the Signal Amplifier do?
    In conjunction w/tanker sig amp, provides normal & alt control features to ready, latch & disconnect AR system through mated coils in UARRSI
  4. What does the Electrical Coil do?
    • - Mates to an identical coil on the tanker boom
    • - Provides communications and boom disconnect capability between the tanker and receiver
  5. Required equipment for AR (-1, 8-75; MEL)
    • The -1 says "should be available"
    • - UHF/DF
    • - A/A TACAN (Range & Bearing)
    • - Wx Radar (MEL says required when TCAS inop & when TS are forecast)
    • - Radar Beacon (if applicable)
    • - MEL requirements
  6. Timing of AR checklists
    • RZ: Normally Prior to Start Descent (30 minutes from CT), NLT ARIP (-1, 8-118)
    • Pre-Contact: Perform when visually maneuvering to pre-contact
  7. What do you do 30 minutes before AR?
    • 3 R's + TACAN (Radios / Radar / Rendezvous Check)
    • - Monitor AR Primary
    • - Set Radar and BCN
    • - Rendezvous Checklist (prior to descent, NLT IP)
    • - Set TACAN
  8. What is the required call to the tanker? When must it be done?
    • CAATTS / must be done 15 min before AR
    • C - Callsign
    • A - Altitude
    • A - Altimeter (if other than 29.92)
    • T - Timing
    • T - TACAN
    • S - Squawk (Mode 3)
    • Optional Items: Tail # & Post AR Requirement
  9. What clearance do you need to conduct AR and by when?
    • The 3 C's / must be done prior to the IP
    • C - Cleared into the Block Altitude
    • C - Cleared to Conduct AR
    • C - Cleared to AR Frequency
  10. EMCON 1
    • - Radios (30 min before)
    • - 15 min call
    • - TACAN (15 min)
    • - Beacon positive ID
    • - IP Call (R)
    • - ADF check (if applicable)
    • - Halfway call (T)
    • - Cleared Astern/Contact (T)
    • - Ack Contact/Disconnect (T)
    • - Verbal Corrections (T)
    • - Return to Astern Call (T)
    • - "Visual" Contact/Lost (R)
    • - "Astern" Call (R)
    • - Disconnect (R)
    • - Manual Latching (R)
    • - Post AAR (R)
  11. EMCON 2
    • - Radios (30 min before)
    • - 15 min call
    • - TACAN (15 min)
    • - IP Call (R)
    • - Cleared Astern (T)
    • - Astern Call (T/R)
    • - Manual Latching (R)
    • - Post AAR (R)
  12. How do you compute Tanker TAS? (3-3, 6.3.3.6.1.1)
    • 1. Ask
    • 2. Relative to Receiver
    • 3. Add Half of tanker altitude
    • 4. TAS Table in ATP-56 (pdf pg 86)
  13. How do you correct the MC #s for Pt Parallel
    +2/+4 or Change to KC-10 and back (better with high xwinds)
  14. Why do you start Timing @ A/A TACAN Turn Range?
    • To avoid over/underrun
    • At 1+10 min:
    • - Tanker should call "1/2 way through turn"
    • - DME should be 1/3 of TR
  15. What speed do you fly (1/2 way through turn) when Tanker Slant Range is:
    >10 NM?
    8-10 NM?
    6-8 NM?
    <6 NM?
    • >10 NM = 340 KCAS
    • 8-10 NM = 320 KCAS
    • 6-8 NM = 310 KCAS
    • <6 NM = Anticipate Overrun (255 KCAS or Vmma, whichever is higher)
  16. Wx required for AR?
    1 NM (2 NM for formation tanker or receiver)
  17. Turns on track during formation (1CL-1, A/R-10)
    >45° receiver must be in contact/precontact or 1,000 ft below and 2nm in trail of lead tanker
  18. KC-135 Boom Limits
    • Azimuth (Left/Right): 10°
    • Extension: 6'-18'
    • Elevation: 25°-40° (35° w/<5 units trim)
  19. KC-10 Boom Limits
    • Azimuth (Left/Right): 19°
    • Extension: 6'-21'
    • Elevation: 25°-40°
  20. PDI Differences (10 vs 135)
    • - KC-10 lights are anticipatory, w/rapid motions lights show correction when not req'd
    • - KC-135 upper limit 25° (intermediate fly down), but no auto disconnect until 20°
  21. Breakaway procedures
    • "Tanker CS Breakaway x3"
    • PF: AP & AT Disconnect Buttons, Idle, Speed Brakes, pos rate descent/aft
    • PM: AP Disconnect Button, maintain visual, rotating BCN lights, Wx Radar if lose visual
    • Aft until entire tanker in sight/1,000 ft if lose visual/NLT 500 ft practice Emerg Sep
  22. Lose visual after Breakaway
    • - "CS Loss of Visual Contact"
    • - Maintain Tanker HDG or Roll Wings Level
    • - Slow 10 knots
    • - Descend 1,000 ft below tanker
    • - Speed up after 30 seconds
  23. Spray/Siphon/Spill
    • Spray: Receiver SHOULD be notified, continue at Receiver discretion
    • Siphon: Fuel transfer WILL stop, Receiver WILL be notified, continue at Receiver discretion
    • Spill: Immediate disconnect, no further AR
