Comments:UC-12 single flight day; cooperative flight with the HU-25. Planned route: KLFI SIE LYNUS 37N07045W ZIBUT ATLIC KLFI with overflight of LFI. UC12 Takeoff from runway 08 with HU-25 following 5 mins later. Uneventful departure with climb on course direct SIE. EB from SIE to LYNUS, ATC informed us that W-387 had ops that would require us to be at either FL300 or FL220 on the WB leg back to ATLIC, our initial response was that we could not make FL300 (based on recollections of RSD initial project and airworthiness limitations). Additionally ATC was going to require us to be at FL220 prior to entering non-radar airspace, which would have required us to spent several hundred miles at FL220. Eventually we negotiated having to be at FL220 by 30nm prior to ZIBUT. Meanwhile we discussed between crew and the HU25 crew (ASO and head of the ASRB) regarding the status of current paperwork limitations on the aircraft, ACTIVATE Ops and airworthiness considerations. After receiving confirmation from RSD (via chat) that updates had been made allowing FL300 ops, we requested the FL300 option. The aircraft reached FL300 (but pretty much topped out) prior to ZIBUT. The tanker ops that blocked the airspace was still active but working their departure soon after we entered W387. Exiting W387 on the west side we descended back to FL280 for the final sonde drop. The aircraft then completed an overflight of Langley at FL280 wing level for <8nm, followed by ATC vectors for a visual approach to Runway 26. General coincidence was maintained within 10 minutes. Normal landing at KLFI runway 26. 4x dropsondes deployed. Crew was Delaney, Wusk, Shingler.
