Engineering Operations Flight (EOF)

Engineering Operations Flight consists of 4 sections:-
• Engineering Operations (Eng Ops)
• Engineering Publications & Records (EP&R)
• Engineering and Logistics Wing Training Cell (ELWTC)
• Visiting Aircraft Section (VAS)

Engineering Operations Flight is responsible for the day to day co-ordination of all engineering activities at RAF Marham, supporting Tornado operations world wide. The 4 sections within EOF are extremely varied in their duties and the supporting role they play in a very busy engineering environment.

Engineering Operations (Eng Ops)
Engineering Operations (Eng Ops) acts as the hub of all aircraft engineering matters, giving 24/7 support to the Station and to Squadrons or aircraft that are deployed OOA. Their key role is to liaise between the Flying Squadrons, the station support flights, Combined Maintenance & Up-grade Program (CMU) and external sources. Very often acting as mediators, these experienced technicians ensure a smooth transition of resources and support to aircraft and crews, whether they are at home or abroad.

Engineering Plans and Records (EP&R)
The section is the focal point for archiving and transfer of aircraft documentation, Marham fleet planning and allocation, control & progression of F760/F765 and Unit LITS Database Help Desk.

The Engineering and Logistics Wing Training Cell (ELWTC)
The cell delivers pre-employment and re-certification training to ground crew and aircrew on Flight Servicing procedures, weapon loading, aircraft handling and cockpit access Unit wide, plus the induction training for new arrivals to ELW. The Flight also mange two Weapon Load Training aircraft, the Units Engineering Authorization database, plus Standards checks and any ad-hoc instructional responsibilities which provides constant new challenges.

Visiting Aircraft Section (VAS)
The Visiting Aircraft Section provides 24 hour handling and service support to visiting RAF, civilian and foreign military aircraft. In addition they are responsible for providing facilities and support to the Unit’s Continuous Charge Operations process.
