AirTanker was chosen in 2008 to provide the Future Strategic Tanker Aircraft (FSTA) to the RAF, underpinning the training, operation and ongoing engineering of the aircraft.

AirTanker takes full responsibility for the maintenance and continued airworthiness of the Voyager fleet.

AirTanker’s Hub at RAF Brize Norton plays host to through-life support and maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO), with the support of our industry partners, Airbus Military, Cobham, Rolls Royce and Thales.
