How do you certify military operations to both civil and military requirements? How do you demonstrate safe operation using equipment that is not part of your aeroplane? Richard will answer these questions in the context of air-to-air refuelling and aerial delivery. One difference between civil and military is that airlines do not throw their passengers (quickly followed by their luggage) out of the aircraft in flight, although the cabin crew might like to on occasion! In addition, civil aircraft refuel with their feet firmly on the ground! How do you overcome these differences?
