AirTanker is providing the RAF with a total capability to deploy and fly air-to-air refuelling and air transport missions worldwide. The fully integrated turn-key service will encompass fleet management and maintenance, ground operations, flight management and crew training. The service uses new multi role tanker transport aircraft which can be used in refuelling or air transport capacities (or a mixture of the two) without reconfiguration. Combined with their high levels of reliability this will provide unprecedented versatility and productivity in service.
The new purpose-built comprehensive service operation, maintenance and support facility at RAF Brize Norton will provide world class operation, maintenance and support to the RAF in a flexible and high quality service. The facility will also provide a superb working environment for AirTanker’s 500 employees, including RAF embedded personnel.
