VistaJet ups safety approach with Oprey Flight Solutions integration

By Doug Gollan, February 7, 2019

The system will deliver instantaneous and intuitive risk assessments for every flight

Global jet card and on-demand charter operator VistaJet said it is further enhancing its inflight operations software with the adoption of Osprey Flight Solutions data-led risk assessment technology. Since its launch in 2004 VistaJet, which owns its fleet of super midsize, large cabin and ultra long-range private jets, said it has completed over 146,000 flights globally, safely flying over 367,000 passengers to more than 1,900 airports worldwide.

Over 200,000 data sources

By integrating Osprey’s leading safety system, VistaJet says it is able to instantaneously and intuitively risk- assess every single flight directly through its proprietary operations software and support operational decision making. The platform delivers immediate intelligence on the aviation environment, collecting data from 200,000 sources in 60 languages. A team of analysts combines the data with machine learning algorithms, painting a real-time view of global safety, according to a press release received by Private Jet Card Comparisons.

Cutting edge technology enhances safety

The new cutting-edge integration complements VistaJet’s expert human analysis to offer comprehensive security and risk assessment. Information includes the widest range of events that could impact flight performance, from local taxi strikes that may delay arrival of crew at the airport, to a detailed evaluation of no fly zones. Data is applied to a 10 km by 10 km grid covering the full globe and provides a detailed altitude overview. With a granular and real time access to data, the VistaJet team is able to measure possible delays and calibrate each flight to the most secure conditions along the safest routes, even when the aircraft is airborne.

Nick van der Meer, VistaJet’s Chief Operations Officer, said, “We look at the most efficient way to fly, with safety being the core driver. By providing even more meaningful data to our in-house experts, they are able to create a smoother flight experience for our customers. Safety is and must always be a common goal for all aviation companies, and we are proud to lead the way by adopting the most advanced innovation technologies available on the market ahead of anyone else in business aviation.”
