The company was formed in 1985 as Atlantic Air Transport and was renamed RVL Aviation in April 2007 when parts of the former Air Atlantique Group became independent businesses.

The company began re-locating its core business from Coventry Airport to East Midlands Airport in autumn 2010, and with the completion of the purpose-built hangar facility in October 2011, it closed its outlying bases (Inverness and Blackpool) at the end of 2011.

As well as ad hoc passenger and cargo charters, the company specialises in aerial survey and surveillance and in particular operations from the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA). Work for the MCA includes surveillance and search and rescue support and providing aircraft on standby for spraying oil spills with dispersant. Originally using a fleet of piston-engined Douglas DC-3 aircraft, the company intends to use the Boeing 737 in the emergency spray role.[2]
