CHAPTER THREE
LOW-LEVEL AND TACTICAL FORMATION
rate, 180 turn toward the receiver(s). This rendezvous may be done electronically using Radar
and IFF range and bearing in formation or by utilizing Air to Air TACAN; however, due to
equipment limitations in the TC-12, we will practice the rendezvous by using standard rate turns
at certain speeds/times (approximate offset achieved by flying 210 KIAS is 2.5 NM). The tanker
will plan to be abeam the ARCP with the 3 nautical mile offset on a reciprocal track heading at
refueling altitude approximately 5 minutes prior to the ARCT. The receiver will be at the ARIP
3 minutes prior to ARCT 1000 feet below refueling altitude. The tanker should plan to make a
standard rate turn back to the AR track 3 minutes prior to ARCT. (At this time, the distance
between the tanker and receiver should be 2 NM) After completion of the turn, the tanker should
be 1 NM in trail of the receiver(s) on the AR track. The tanker should overtake the receiver(s) 4
NM prior to the ARCP. Upon overtaking the receiver(s), the tanker will slow to the refueling
airspeed of 170 KIAS while the receiver(s) accelerates to 170 KIAS in preparation for maneuver
and climb to the observation position. The receiver(s) will maintain 1000 feet vertical separation
until the tanker passes overhead or abeam and clears the receiver(s) to the observation position.
