WORDS & PHOTOS: Airman Alvaro Villagomez // SOURCE: housands of hours are spent each year removing and installing a boom cover on a KC-135 refueling aircraft—hoursStratotankerthatcould be used elsewhere. One 100th Maintenance Squadron Airman has invented a new boom cover tool that has the potential to save the U.S. Air Force 40,000 man-hours and approximately $1 million per year. “I noticed as soon as I got to Mildenhall that removing 6 | SEPTEMBER 2022 and installing the boom cover was tedious and time consuming,” said Airman 1st Class Jacob Helzer, 100th MXS time and lessens the impact on the flow of operations.

“One of the maintenance crew chiefs reached out because he knew I enjoy 3D printing and design and believed I could come up with a solution for the boom cover,” said Helzer. “I then came up with a prototype for a tool that could make the process much smoother.” Tech Sgt. Steven Jakubowski said that Helzer is always looking for ways to innovate and constantly asking questions to gain further knowledge. “He spent a lot T


One Boom Pod at a Time Airman 1st Class Jacob Helzer is the mind behind the Boom Cover Tool that enables Airmen to install and remove a boom cover off a KC-135 Stratotanker aircraft in less than two minutes.

RAF M ILDENHALL N EWS of his free time, outside of work, designing the boom cover tool,” said Jakubowski. Helzer using his skill and knowledge with 3D printing created a prototype called the ‘Boom Cover Tool’. The tool was manufactured with Helzer’s 3D printer and resembles a butterfly net on the end of a retractable pole with a hoop mechanism that tightens and loosens the net covering on the opposite end. “Once I created the prototype, I brought it to my section and tested it out,” said Helzer. “A 30-minute job became a one-minute job with the Boom Cover Tool.” The Boom Cover Tool greatly reduces the number of man-hours needed every time a cover needs to be removed or installed on an aircraft and the cover itself better protects the boom pod during adverse weather Eachconditions.Boom Cover Tool costs roughly $200 to produce. “The projected saving were calculated by him and I while submitting for Spark Tank by using the 2021 comptroller document for wages,” said “IJakubowski.didthemath and the projected savings for the Air Force if they utilized the Boom Cover Tool for the entirety of the refueling fleet would be approximately $1 million and potentially 40,000 man-hours annually,” said Helzer. In order to meet this goal, Helzer has been collaborating with the MXS fabrication flight to produce the test prototypes for each aircraft at RAF Mildenhall. “Once we have everything streamlined, we can move into the beta testing phase, which is roughly six months, then move on to scaling up for the entire KC-135 Stratotanker aircraft fleet.”

HelzerJakubowski.hasalways been motivated to improve himself and the way things are done at his job and one example of this is the Boom Cover Tool.

“Helzer has been a go-getter from the moment he arrived on station and is always hungry to learn all aspect of his job and his critical thinking skills are some of the bests I’ve ever seen,” said


Moving forward, Helzer plans on developing a batch of tools for the KC-135 fleet at RAF Mildenhall to prove the design concept. Helzer would then like to contract the fabrication of a final, more durable prototype and share the Boom Cover Tool throughout the entire fleet and modify the design to be adopted for other variations of refueling aircraft.

“This is how change starts by questioning the way we do things and coming up with a solution that will benefit Airmen at all levels,” said Helzer. “I created the Boom Cover Tool to make the lives of my Wingmen easier and inspire Airmen to devise and implement new ideas to help improve even the simplest tasks.”
