AirTanker brings the collective expertise of some of the aerospace industry’s leading companies into the front-line delivery of aircraft provision, maintenance and flight operations.

Our expertise

AirTanker is the company appointed in 2008 to deliver RAF Voyager, the Future Strategic Tanker Aircraft (FSTA) contract, a 27 year service that is delivering a step-change in the RAFs operational capability.

This includes the supply of a fleet of nine new Airbus MRTT (Multi-Role Tanker Transport) aircraft to the RAF and the service and infrastructure to support them including flight operations and aircraft maintenance.

We’re now bringing this expertise to the wider A330 leasing market. Supplying the RAF and supporting UK military operations means that we have had to be flexible. We’re now applying this experience to create a new and highly versatile ACMI and A330 leasing service

Unparalleled stability

AirTanker is a partnership of global leading aerospace companies, Airbus Group, Cobham, Rolls-Royce and Thales and the defence facilities management and training specialist, Babcock. Together they form our primary supply chain, with responsibility for through-life support of aircraft and the facilities, which we use to deliver the service.

Owned by some of the biggest businesses in aviation and with a secure and long term government contract, we are also one of the most financially stable suppliers to the ACMI market.

A unique model

This arrangement brings unrivalled expertise to AirTanker’s frontline operation, which includes a full CAA Part M and Part 145 approved engineering and maintenance service. AirTanker also holds its own Air Operators Certificate employing a team of civilian pilots and cabin crews.
