Flightworx teams with Osprey to advise operators on risk
Mitigating risk and guaranteeing safety are the cornerstones of any charter operation, and flight support companies such as Flightworx are tasked with assessing and reducing such scenarios as much as possible.

UK flight support provider Flightworx Aviation has partnered with aviation risk management company Osprey Flight Solutions, making it the one of the first flight support companies to introduce instantaneous data-led risk assessments into its business.

Flightworx flight planning tools will integrate with Osprey's system to deliver instantaneous, intuitive, visual and written risk assessments whenever needed, supporting operational decision making, quality control and compliance.

By utilising Osprey's technical capabilities, Flightworx dispatch can assess an operator's flight routing to ensure alerted risk areas are avoided. Using reports that are up to the minute and packed with live data, including a risk score, experienced dispatchers can review the routing and advise operators accordingly with best options. Additional reports on country, airspace or airports are also available.

Osprey Alerts include a specific set of recommendations to mitigate security, safety and operational risks to their aircraft passengers and crew. Standard alerts also include a list of most recent historical data from the Osprey incident database. The incident data provides operators additional awareness of aviation safety, security, operational and regulatory occurrences as well as conflict zone dynamics and conventional military issues that may affect flight operations within the country, airspace or airport. Standard alerts can be user customised through a number of filters including country, geographical region, air, ground and more for each recipient.

“The benefit of the security brief service is a fulfilment of regulation and risk assessment requirements for private and commercial operations around the world,” explains Flightworx co-owner and director James Wiskin. “These turn-key briefs are now made possible with a proactive touch of a button. We can provide a clear real-time brief from a global source that is compatible with any regulation worldwide. We are leading the way with security to ensure our clients are fully informed about the volatility of these ever-changing situations.”

Osprey CCO Bruce Norfolk adds: “It's wonderful to see Flightworx employing the operational benefits of true data-led risk management, providing clients with the most accurate and up-to-date security information available.”
