BBGA supports launch of security platform Osprey:Open
Osprey believes that everyone should be able to access the latest, curated data to allow operators to understand and mitigate the threats to their crew, passengers and aircraft, and as such is unveiling :Open.

Osprey Flight Solutions has launched Osprey:Open, a free-of-charge platform designed to support the aviation industry in conducting effective risk management.

Osprey:Open is said to be an easy to access, user-friendly, individual-user based platform that provides a base level of security data and information for anywhere in the world.

For the first time, comprehensive data on the types of incident or environment that have a daily impact on operations is instantaneously available, making Osprey:Open the most capable platform for supporting security risk management in the industry.

CEO Andrew Nicholson comments: “Recent events clearly and tragically demonstrate a continuing need for better risk management across the aviation industry. Our core subscription service delivers the highest quality of operationally specific risk management support in the industry, but resource constraints and policies mean that some airlines are not in a position to embed an enterprise solution at this stage. So, to enable a cross-industry improvement in risk management, it became clear that another solution was needed. Osprey:Open is that solution. I am delighted that we're launching this service as part of our continued commitment to supporting the aviation industry in conducting effective risk management.

“Our database is the largest repository of aviation specific incident data. :Open gives users access to the data categories on crime, corruption, social unrest and aviation security events for every country and airport globally through a clear, map-based interface with charts that show six months of data, enabling trends and patterns to be identified.”

Osprey believes that everyone should be able to access the latest, curated data to allow operators to understand and mitigate the threats to their crew, passengers and aircraft.

Osprey:Open has been launched in partnership with Hive Aero and The British Business and General Aviation Association (BBGA).

BBGA CEO Marc Bailey says: “We are proud to support the launch of Osprey:Open. Having seen the platform in action, it was easy to identify the huge advantages it will deliver in improving risk management, not only for our members, but across the industry as a whole.”
