Safety and security at the core of all operations for VistaJet

VistaJet advances its flight operations software with the adoption of Osprey Flight Solutions data-led risk assessment technology, this week (February 6), ensuring the safety, security and wellbeing of its passengers and staff are priority.

Through integrating Osprey’s leading safety system, VistaJet can 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 combine the data with machine learning algorithms, painting a real-time view of global safety.

Nick van der Meer, chief operating officer at VistaJet, 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 can 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.”

The new cutting-edge integration complements VistaJet’s 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 10-kilometres by 10-kilometres grid covering the full globe and provides a detailed altitude overview. With a granular and real time access to data, the VistaJet team can measure possible delays and calibrate each flight to the most secure conditions along the safest routes, even when the aircraft is airborne.

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.

Ever since its launch in 2004, VistaJet has paid attention to operational and flight safety and has completed over 146,000 worldwide flights, having flown more than 367,000 passengers to 1,900 airports worldwide.
