VistaJet is bolstering its operational and flight safety through the adoption of Osprey Flight Solutions data-led risk assessment technology, the business aviation services company announced. The integration of the Osprey system enables VistaJet to assess the risk of each of its flights in real time through its proprietary operations software, according to Malta-based VistaJet.

Its platform combined with Osprey captures data from 200,000 sources in 60 languages, which is combined with machine-learning algorithms by a VistaJet team of analysts who also consider information such as a local taxi strike that delays its crew arrival to an airport or provide a detailed evaluation of no-fly zones.

“We look at the most efficient way to fly, with safety being the core driver,” said VistaJet chief operations officer Nick van der Meer. “By providing even more meaningful data to our in-house experts, they are able to create a smoother flight experience for our customers.”

VistaJet received the Diamond Safety of Flight Award from the European Business Aviation Association in 2016 and 2018 and has a fleet of more than 70 Bombardier jets. Since its founding in 2004, VistaJet has completed more than 146,00 flights globally with some 367,000 passengers traveling to more than 1,900 airports, the company said.
