Hi, I thought this might be a good place to post some information I built of a static AR Track based on RL AR207 that anyone can use. It’s not perfect but I think it’s a good balance for gameplay vs RL procedures.
AAR Area: AR207 (KVAD - KRDU)
AAR Anchor Waypoint: AMG - RDU
Flight Level: FL220-280
For HOLDING ORBITS and ANCHOR POINT turns: 180~200 KIAS
Plane Altitude Speed (KIAS)
F22 20,000-28,000 310 kts
C/AC 130 12,000-22,000 210 kts
F14 20,000-28,000 300 kts
F16 20,000-28,000 300 kts
VC25 (Air Force One) 20,000-28,000 260 kts
Base Airport: KVAD
Tanker Callsign: URCLS XX
NOTAM: Here are some special notes for maximum benefits balancing RL vs Gameplay:
Refuel on track only. Please DO NOT attempt during en route to/from track, take off and final
Track initial point/ entry at AMG
Meet tanker at BAXLY - ICMF
TANKER make turn for return leg at W77/RASKL
South Track IP is RASKL
Re-establish tanker refueling at SDZ
Return leg terminus left turn will be at RUGOC and re-establish North leg.
Receiver holding pattern, left turns at AMG to wait for Tanker
If no receiver TANKER will orbit BAXLY/ICMF/CIGOX/RUGOC and wait
AMG BAXLY ICMAF LOTTS DOVER CUMEN SSC08 52J W77 RDU W77 RASKL SDZ YELLS OXHED NANIE CIGOX RUGOC BAXLY
This track can also be set up for a southern run but needs hold points off the track. With enough discipline of all involved you can have multiple tankers and receivers timed N/S, S/N and altitude stacked between altitudes listed above.
ATC at KAVD/KRDU/KPOB could be of great help if available.
This can be even more complicated due to no direct communication with Tanker and it only takes 1 not wanting to follow established procedures to mess it up.
Anyway, I hope others can put this
