 The European Business Aviation Association (EBAA) announced today that it has partnered with risk analysis company Osprey Flight Solutions to provide operators with real-time updates on risk information related to the COVID-19 outbreak. Business aviation operators are able to access the Osprey:Open platform to find live updates on COVID-19 and its impact on daily operations, including;

  • Country-based COVID-19 infection rates, showing the growth and rate of the infection, and what stage in the spread of the virus that country is experiencing.
  • COVID-19 related NOTAMs, both those published by any country and those relating to any international airport.
  • All known travel restrictions for each country. 

Commenting on the new partnership, Robert Baltus, Chief Operations Officer at EBAA, said:

“Since the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis, the EBAA team has been working hard to provide a constant flow of updated operational information and safety guidance to our members. We’re delighted to team up with Osprey Flight Solutions to enhance EBAA’s support capabilities and ensure that the business aviation sector can operate with the most up-to-date intelligence available in this crisis”. 

Bruce Norfolk, Chief Commercial Officer at Osprey, added:

“Our absolute priority right now is to provide the most accurate data and analytics to support the industry during this time of global crisis. The team at Osprey have worked around the clock to bring updates to :Open that will help operators to monitor and make decisions about their operations. I’d like to thank EBAA for their support in the continued development of :Open and for recognising the huge capabilities it can deliver to the aviation industry – particularly during this critical time.”

Osprey:Open is 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 aviation industry.

The datasets within the platform are updated as near live time as possible, keeping operators up to date as the situation develops, with further capabilities to be added over the coming days and weeks.
