Air Tanker

AirTanker are a PFI consortium providing personnel transport and in-flight refuelling services for the RAF using a fleet of Airbus A330-200 passenger airliners.

This £39 million project provided all the building infrastructure necessary to run the airline; two maintenance hangar bays, specialist workshops and stores, administrative offices, flight crew briefing and welfare facilities, secure mission planning and mission control centres, accommodation for two RAF squadrons and a separate motor transport workshop for maintenance of ground support equipment.

A timelapse film of the development of the AirTanker Services site can be viewed via webcam on the Airtanker website.
