Abstract : The Aerial Refueling Clearance Process Guide provides a standardized manual for the establishment of technical and operational aerial refueling clearances. These standardized procedures will facilitate aerial refueling clearances. The Clearance Process Guide is not intended to address initial qualification for tanker or receiver aircraft. It is designed to be applicable to tanker and receiver aircraft operated within the military services and by cooperating and coalition nations, military and commercial aerial refueling services. The processes contained in this document are intended as a guide for multi-national standardization to facilitate clearances between tanker and receiver aircraft not previously cleared for joint aerial refueling missions. The processes are not mandatory and do not supersede national procedures. This document also provides, as an attachment, an aerial refueling tanker/receiver clearance compatibility assessment checklist.
