Hours of Operation - 1200-04002++ weekdays, occasional weekends
Altitude data - Prior to point "A", as assigned by ATC if IFR or any applicable VFR altitude if
VFR down to 1000 feet AGL.
From point "A" to "C" you have a block altitude (B) of 500 feet AGL and 1500 feet AGL.
Five miles SE of point D must cross at 1000 feet AGL. Point locations -Point "A" is on the
Semmes (SJI) VORTAC 169° radial at 22 NM. (This FAC/RAD/DIST description is useful
when airborne, but for preflight planning purposes you should use the Lat./Long position, as
given in the route description, to plot the points on your VNA V chart).
Special Operating Procedures - You should read and adhere to all restrictions that apply to your
Aerial Refueling Tracks/Anchors (AR)
The conduct of aerial refueling is based on the strict requirement that participating aircraft
remain within specifically designated airspace. Aerial refueling operations are normally
conducted on tracks or in anchor areas published in this document, and will be conducted under
Instrument Flight Rules. These routes are of primary concern to US Air Force aircraft. Naval
aircraft will conduct in-flight refueling where dictated by operational requirements.
This unit has concentrated on the location and importance of information in FLIP Area Planning,
including Class B airspace, flight hazards, route and area restrictions, supplementary airport
remarks, preferred IFR routes, designated mountainous areas, special use airspace, and military
