  • Raptor refueling goes hot on JBLM

    Dec 4, 2013

    JOINT BASE LEWIS-MCCHORD, Wash. -- When it comes to an Army aviation unit, helicopters are only as effective as their fuel tanks will let them be. That's where the ingenuity of creating rapid refuel points allows missions to be conducted over a larger radius.

The hot refueling limits the time it takes for helicopters to get back in the air and train or conduct missions," said Sgt. 1st Class Severino B. Ignaco, 16th Combat Aviation Brigade senior petroleum supply specialist. But when you take all the moving parts of refueling alone and combine it with a running helicopter, refueling teams must expand their knowledge beyond their initial training.
