Introduction.
The Omega
group of commercial companies,
referred to as Omega Air, is engaged
in providing air to air Refueling
services and aircraft. Omega Air has
three active tanker types, Omega KC707/TT (tanker transport), Omega
B707-338C, and the Omega KDC10/MPTT.
2.
Tanker Aircraft Types.
a.
OMEGA KC-707/TT. Four wing-mounted JT3D-3B engines power the aircraft.
Maximum takeoff weight is 331,600 lbs with a maximum fuel load of 160,000 lbs.
Maximum landing weight is 247,000 lb. Communications equipment includes UHF,
HF, VHF radios and satellite phone. The aircraft is also equipped with a Traffic
Collision Avoidance System (TCAS) for collision avoidance during rendezvous (RV)
procedures. The tanker is equipped with an aerial Refuelling system located in the
lower aft fuselage. This duel-hose drogue air to air Refuelling (AAR) system is
internally mounted on the centerline of the aircraft within a pressurized
compartment.
(1) AAR Equipment. The AAR system is comprised of two independent
Sargent Fletcher FR300 Refuelling systems (similar to those used on the
wings of KC-130F/R/T aircraft). Each system includes a 93-ft long hose. In full
trail position, the hose extends 80 ft. from the point at which it exits the aircraft
to the drogue tip. The white Refuelling hoses have black markings that
designate the Refuelling range and provide hose movement cues, see
Appendix 1. The two reels are installed side-by-side and cannot be used
simultaneously. The reels are hydraulically powered and operate
independently, allowing for a redundant capability. Two J.C. Carter fuel
transfer pumps per hose reel system provide fuel flow of over 911 kg/2,010
lbs/300 gallons per minute. Two in-line regulators provide fuel pressure
regulation and surge suppression within the MA-4 couplings (50 ± 5 psi) from
0 to maximum fuel flow. The reels are controlled by a reel operator through a
cockpit-mounted control panel that provides video coverage of the AAR area
aft of the Omega 707 tanker.
(2) Refueling Heights and Speeds. AAR height band is 5,000 ft AGL to
FL350; speed range is 200 KIAS to 325 KIAS.
(3) Maximum Transferable Fuel. Maximum fuel
(160,000 lbs). Transferable fuel is dependent on sortie
conditions. A representative offload of 35,455 kg (76,000
5 hr flight, assuming a fuel burn rate of 6,363 kg/hr
allowing for tanker IFR fuel reserves.

(4) Fuel Transfer Rate. Transfer rate is over 911 kg/2,010 lbs/300 gallons
per min for each Refuelling system.
(5)
Regulated Fuel Pressure. Regulated at the drogue to 50 ± 5 psi.
(6) Fuel Types Available for AAR. F-35 (Jet A-1), F-34 (JP-8, Jet A-1 +
additives), F-40 (JP-4) and F-44 (JP-5, Jet A).
(7)
Receiver Types Certified. See Appendix 4.
(8) Lighting. AAR status lights are mounted 6 ft aft of the hose exit point
on the aircraft centerline, see Appendix 1. The lights signal the following:
Prior to contact
Steady Red
Do not make contact.
Amber
Tanker ready for contact.
Following contact
Green
Fuel is flowing from the hose reel to the receiver
Amber
Hose is not within designated Refuelling range
(no fuel flow).
Flashing or Steady Red
Breakaway.
Aircraft undersurfaces are illuminated by floodlights. The drogue canopy is
fitted with luminous light sources. The hose is white marked with 4 black
bands spaced at 3 m (10 ft) intervals. The 20 ft Refueling range has additional
bands spaced at 2 ft intervals. See Appendix 1.
(9) Mark Facilities. Aircraft are fitted with red and green rotating beacons,
navigation lights, wing tip formation lights, underbelly lights and logo lights.
(10) Dimensions. See Appendix 1.
(11) RV Aids. The aircraft has the following radio, navigation and RV aids:
(a)
VHF, UHF, HF radios and satellite phone.
(b)
GPS,VOR,.DME, ADF and TACAN.
(c)
A/A TACAN, TCAS
b.
Omega B707-338C. Four wing-mounted JT3D-3B engines power the aircraft.
Maximum takeoff weight is 331,600 lbs with a maximum fuel load of 160,000 lbs.
Maximum landing weight is 247,000 lb. Communications equipment includes UHF,
HF, VHF radios and satellite phone and TCAS. The tankers are equipped with two
under wing mounted refuelling pods.
(1) AAR Equipment. The OMEGA B707 tanker has 2 wing mounted Flight
Refueling MK32B AAR pods installed approximately 10 ft from each wing tip.
Each AAR pod has a 49.5 ft hose and an MA3 coupling. To achieve fuel flow
after making contact, the hose must be pushed in 5 ft and maintained within

the Refuelling range. Refuelling range limits, corresponding hose markings,
and drogue dimensions are illustrated at Appendix 2.
(2) Refueling Height and Speed. Refuelling operations may be carried out
between 5,000 ft AGL and 35,000 ft at speeds between 250 and 325 KIAS.
(3) Maximum Transferable Fuel. Fuel transfer is carried out from the
B707’s normal fuel tanks. The maximum fuel load for the B707 is 160,000 lbs.
The maximum fuel offload is dependent upon a number of factors including
sortie duration, holding requirements and alternate airfield availability. A
representative offload of 35,455 kg (76,000 lbs) is available for a 5 hr flight,
assuming a fuel burn rate of 6,363 kg/hr (14,000 lbs/hr) and allowing for tanker
IFR fuel reserves.
(4)
Fuel Transfer Rate. The fuel transfer rate is 400 gallons/minute.
(5) Regulated Fuel Pressure. The AAR pod’s ram air turbine (RAT) is
automatically adjusted to ensure that the fuel pressure at the coupling is
regulated to 50 ± 5 psi irrespective of fuel flow.
(6)
Fuel Types Available for AAR. Dependent on fuel type loaded.
(a) Primary fuel types authorized are JP4 (F40), JP5 (F44) and JP8
(F34).
(b) Alternate fuel types authorized are F35 (AVTUR/JET A1) and F43
(AVCAT).
(7)
Receiver Types Certified. See Appendix 4.
(8) Lighting. Tanker aircraft lighting is illustrated at Appendix 2. AAR signal
lights are located at the base of the pod tunnel and consist of 2 each (one for
redundancy) red, amber and green lights. Light signals are as follows:
Steady Red
Do not make contact or, if in contact, remain in contact
and await further instructions.
Steady Amber
Tanker ready for contact.
No Lights
If not in contact: do not make contact.
If in contact and within the Refueling range: fuel either not
flowing or flowing at less than 50 gal/min. (Note. This is a
normal indication for dry contacts).
Steady Green
Fuel flowing > 50 gal/min. (Note. Green light may flash
on/off when topped off indicating fuel transfer = fuel burn).
Flashing Amber
Hose pushed in < 25 ft from the fully stowed position.
(Note. Fuel transfer will cease if the hose is pushed in
further than 23 ft from the fully stowed position).
Flashing Red
Disconnect and move to echelon left. (Note. If the red pod
light is accompanied by the illumination of the tanker’s
lower beacon, breakaway and move to nearest echelon).
