FLEXIBILITY and RELIABILITY: STRATEGIC TANKING THE NAVY/MARINE CORPS WAY!

Current Fleet of Aircraft

  • 2 x Boeing KC-707s (specially modified B-707s or former 707 operational tanker aircraft)
  • 1 x McDonnell Douglas KDC-10 (specially modified DC-10-40)

What does it cost the individual squadron to use Omega?


KDC-10 and K-707NOTHING-just pay for the gov't-priced gas you take!

The Omega tanker flying contract is administered by NAVAIRSYSCOM PMA 226. The tanker is funded for its flying hours using CNAF flying hours through PMA 226 to support Navy and Marine Corps Aviation. Thus, there is no direct cost to the military units for requesting and flying with Omega. All flights are approved by the Commercial Air Services Manager, the government representative.

 

Omega Aerial Refueling Services Participates in First Ever Successful Unmanned In-Flight Refueling with the X-47B

Omega Aerial Refueling Services, Inc. is proud to have participated in the U.S. Navy’s Unmanned Combat Air System demonstrator program, proving the ability to conduct in-flight refueling with the unmanned Northrop Grumman X-47B aircraft.

On April 22, 2015 an Omega KC-707 tanker successfully offloaded 4,100 pounds of fuel to the X-47B, surpassing U.S. Navy program goals. This demonstration marked the first time in history that an unmanned aircraft has successfully been refueled mid-air, and is a ground-breaking step forward that will help determine the path of naval aviation in years to come.
