Charter operator and business aircraft manager Elit’Avia has implemented Osprey Flight Solutions risk assessment software for its operations, the Solvenia-based company announced this week. The Osprey system allows Elit’Avia to assess the relative security risk of each flight in real time. 

“By integrating sophisticated risk assessment into our flight planning, we are providing a safer environment for our passengers and crews,” Elit’Avia CEO Michel Coulomb said. “Furthermore, risk assessment optimizes flight planning and increases overall operational efficiency. Our investment in risk assessment underscores our commitments to safety, operational excellence, and technological innovation.”

The U.K.-based Osprey system combines technology with human analysis to provide access to information on the global aviation security environment. It uses data gathered from more than 200,000 open sources in 60 languages that is first analyzed by artificial intelligence and machine learning. Sources of the information include social media, international and local news media, aviation authorities, government departments, and law enforcement.
