  • Winter's Unseen Trap

    Dec 11, 2013

    As an officer and aviator in the U.S. Army, I -- like most of you -- have been exposed to a significant amount of safety training. We've all learned that the unseen hazard is oftentimes the most dangerous. For example, Field Manual 3-04.301(1-301), Aeromedical Training for Flight Personnel, highlights Type I (unrecognized) spatial disorientation as the most dangerous because the hapless aviator has no idea they are disoriented, and thus, takes no action to correct the danger facing them. Carbon monoxide is similarly insidious. Whether it is exhaust leaking into your vehicle, or perhaps a propane heater warming a tent, carbon monoxide takes its prey with no warning. However, this article is not about spatial disorientation or carbon monoxide. There is another hazard that's similarly treacherous and just as veiled. Unfortunately, I found myself in its trap on my way home from drill one weekend.

  • 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 reason that rapid refuel points exist is to eliminate the number of times helicopters have to cool down for cold refueling. 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. More than 50 petroleum supply specialists, 92F Army military occupational specialty identifier, from the 16th CAB, 7th Infantry Division joined in a week-long hot refuel training conducted by the 46th Aviation Support Battalion support operations section.
