The European Business Aviation Association (EBAA) has joined forces 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, which show the growth and rate of the infection and what stage in the spread of the virus that country is experiencing.
The platform can also be used for COVID-19 related NOTAMs, both those published by any country and those relating to any international airport. All known travel restrictions for each country are detailed too.
“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,” said Robert Baltus, chief operations officer at EBAA. “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.”
“Our absolute priority right now is to provide the most accurate data and analytics to support the industry during this time of global crisis,” said Bruce Norfolk, chief commercial officer at Osprey. “The team at Osprey have worked around the clock to bring updates to Osprey:Open that will help operators to monitor and make decisions about their operations.”
Osprey:Open provides a base level of security data and information for anywhere in the world. Comprehensive data on the types of incident or environment that have a daily impact on operations is instantaneously available. The datasets within the platform are updated as near live time as possible, keeping operators up to date as the situation develops.
