FAI Aviation Group is using Osprey's flight data system to enable safer, more secure flights.

Nuremberg, Germany-headquartered charter and air ambulance operator FAI Aviation Group is enhancing its flight safety and security through the implementation of a risk management system from aviation risk analysis provider Osprey Flight Solutions.

Headquartered at Albrecht Duerer International airport, FAI has been operating for over 30 years and currently operates a fleet of 21 jet aircraft for VIP charter and air ambulance, including three aircraft providing special mission services for the world´s largest NGO. It has introduced Osprey's system, which collects data from over 200,000 open sources in over 60 languages, to enhance its risk management processes and enable safer, more secure flights across all destinations.

FAI safety manager Michael Wiegand says: “With our special mission profile and many flights to global crisis areas, we depend on a strong partner like Osprey. In particular, I really appreciate the immediate availability of relevant data.”

The Osprey system is a powerful resource for understanding the risks in the global aviation operating environment by seamlessly integrating cutting-edge technology with world-class human analysis. By rapidly identifying, corroborating and classifying incidents, events and situations about which operators should be informed, Osprey delivers an end-to-end risk management system from take off to touch down.

CCO Bruce Norfolk says: “It's a pleasure to welcome FAI Aviation Group to our rapidly expanding client base. We look forward to working with it to enhance its operational decision-making and support it in conducting effective and efficient risk management.”
