As one of the leading providers of mission-critical aviation services, FAI is committed to providing the highest levels of service and safety in the industry. The Group has introduced Osprey’s system, which collects data from over 200,000 open sources in over 60 languages, to enhance their risk management processes and enable safer, more secure flights across all destinations.
