Introducing Infinite Flight Tanker Services VO!
Aerial refueling is the process of transferring aviation fuel from one military aircraft (the tanker) to another (the receiver) during flight. The procedure allows the receiving aircraft to remain airborne longer, extending its range or loiter time on station. A series of air refuelings can give range limited only by crew fatigue and engineering factors such as engine oil consumption. Because the receiver aircraft can be topped up with ex…
Not a request, but a heads up, I’m flying Bangor international (KGBR) to Raf Mildenhall (EGUN) so if anyone wants a tanker across the Atlantic I’ll be more than happy to do it.

I’m coming from the west/north west. Left vegas.
Currently 22 minutes out, gonna speed up again
Not in my view yet, anyway hovering around the VOR still ascending. I’ll drop my boom in about 10 minutes.

No I don’t, just in the area, once we see each other start heading towards Tampa. If 350 is to fast feel free to slow
Ok, I see you now :) I’ll make a few more circles and turn to Tampa
