Paradrogue Assemblies for Aerial Refueling Operations
One of APC’s most unique combined material products is seen in our paradrogue assemblies used for in-flight refueling operations. This particular unit is engineered for the KC-135 Stratotanker aircraft. Essentially, the paradrogue is responsible for stabilizing the various fueling equipment and hoses as the system is deployed midair.
The assembly is fabricated with aluminum arms, which are CNC machined to precision tolerances. The paradrogue unit features a welded steel ring and specialized phenolic spacers, as well as custom eye bolts, clips, and swaged ball cable assemblies. Industrial textiles used include a cut & sewn canopy reinforced with high-strength tape. APC’s innovation lies in our capability to combine a range of high-performance materials into complex aerospace products.
