AirTanker, which operates and maintains the key Voyager contract for the Ministry of Defence, has signed an agreement to use Vistair Systems’ cloud-based e-manuals solution, DocuNet.

In addition AirTanker, based at RAF Brize Norton in Oxfordshire, will also use Vistair’s crew communications portal, CrewNet.

The consortium, made up of leading aerospace and defence sector suppliers Airbus Group, Rolls-Royce, Thales, Babcock and Cobham, is responsible for delivering, maintaining and supporting Voyager, the RAF’s new-generation
multi-role tanker transport aircraft, from crew training to dispatch.

Its remit includes air-to-air refueling, air transport and aeromedical evacuation capability, plus associated services and infrastructure for the RAF’s core fleet of nine Voyager A330 aircraft.

AirTanker also provides operational and planning control, aircraft maintenance and dispatch, full flight crew training plus maintenance of a two-bay purpose built hangar and operational centre.

Vistair’s DocuNet document management system and CrewNet communications portal are used by airlines around the world, providing AirTanker with reassurance that the robust systems are both best-in-class and proven operationally.
