To determine the minimum crew complement required for an Advanced TankerCargo Aircraft a series of contractor and AF task analysis were reviewed and evaluated. Coupled with these analyses were a series of flight tests which verified some of task time and procedures required for Advanced TankerCargo Aircraft. It was concluded that a three-man crew P, CP, Boom Operator had crew work overloads during several flight segments and this crew size would be unacceptable in a Emergency War Order EWO environment. A four-man crew P, CP, NFE and Boom Operator was the most advantageous and could handle most tasks below a 100 task loading. Author
