Safety and security always at the core of all operations, now with real time data-led analysis.

  • Osprey’s breakthrough Flight Risk Assessment system will integrate with VistaJet’s proprietary flight operations software
  • The system will deliver instantaneous and intuitive risk assessments for every flight
  • VistaJet is the first operator to receive the EBAA Diamond Safety of Flight Award

VistaJet places the safety, security and wellbeing of its customers and staff above all else. Today, the company announces a further step in advancing its flight operations software with the adoption of Osprey Flight Solutions data-led risk assessment technology.

Ever since its launch in 2004, VistaJet has placed the utmost attention on operational and flight safety and to date has completed over 146,000 flights globally, having safely flown over 367,000 passengers to more than 1,900 airports worldwide.

By integrating Osprey’s leading safety system, VistaJet 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.

The new cutting-edge integration complements VistaJet’s expert human analysis to offer the most 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 flying zones. Data is applied to a 10km by 10km 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 Operating 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 inhouse 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.”

Operated from its headquarters in Malta and supported through its network of regional offices, VistaJet’s rigorous safety standards have been recognized globally. VistaJet is the first operator to be awarded the Diamond Safety of Flight Award by the European Business Aviation Association (EBAA) in 2016, and again in 2018, with each recognition spanning two years. The company’s operations are also classified with the ARGUS International Platinum Rating and Wyvern Wingman, and VistaJet flight crew and ground staff are trained to standards that surpass stringent industry regulations.
