If RAF Voyager delivers a new technical capability, it is its people which are the programme’s heart-beat. Civilian, Sponsored Reservists, RAF embedded and Squadrons – all share a common commitment to service in support of the UK Armed Forces.

Future force

The Voyager programme is at the forefront of a seismic shift in the way the UK Armed Forces are structured.  This puts new emphasis on the part industry and civilians have to play in support of and alongside, full time RAF personnel.

It brings together a team of civilian aircraft and aviation experts, placing them next to AirTanker RAF embedded personnel, Sponsored Reservists and the RAF Voyager Squadrons. This mixed manning structure means that Voyager combines the best from civilian aviation with military know how, to deliver a potent new capability to the RAF, UK Armed Forces and our global partners.
