Airspan maintains a fuel system per CSA B836 and provides sales to other aircraft operators at our main base as well as via our tanker trucks.
For larger jobs without nearby refuelling options, Airspan may be able to provide savings to the customer through the use of drum fuel (prepositioned or brought with the aircraft), or by way of our 3,000L or 15,000L tanker trucks.
EnviroTanker (Large Fuel Truck)
Our 15,000L EnviroTanker can provide hassle free and evironmentally conscious onsite fuelling capabilities. Featuring a double walled compartment, this vehicle eliminates the requirement for costly and time-consuming secondary containment (berming or bunding) of the
fuelling area, dealing with leaks, or defueling to move tanks.
F550 (Small Fuel Truck)
Our 3,000L fuel system, mounted on F550 chassis allows us to provide highly mobile support for our aircraft just about anywhere there’s a road and a suitable landing site. the 3,000L capacity allows us to support a full day’s flying with our 212 and more with the smaller aircraft.
Along the flight and fuel services Airspan is also able to provide specialized operations equipment and/or ground support personnel for certain activities.
Airspan maintains a wide range of operations equipment including:
♦ with remote electrical and carousel hooks
