Among its duties, the Agency is responsible for countering oil pollution on the UK coast and waters; It also provides a 24-hour maritime search and rescue (SAR) service around the UK coast, aeronautical SAR and aviation support to the Police for inland SAR.

RVL Group is contracted by the Maritime & Coastguard Agency to operate fixed-wing aircraft on its behalf, primarily in a counter pollution role but also in the airborne delivery of dispersant fluid upon mineral oil spills at sea.

The Cessna F406, of which RVL operates six, is a turboprop-powered aircraft capable of seating up to nine passengers, or a smaller number of systems operators.
