Joe McKenna - Osprey Consulting

Joe McKenna

Platforms and Air Systems Team Leader

Joe spent 16 years in the Royal Air Force as an Aerosystems Engineering Officer working with fast jet, transport, and surveillance aircraft, specialising in military-registered civil-operated platforms.  For the last 6 years, Joe has been an air safety and airworthiness consultant supporting numerous air platforms in the Defence Air Environment.

As an aerospace safety consultant, Joe undertook independent safety auditor activities for Typhoon, Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, and P-8A Poseidon.  He also supported the UK Military Flying Training System to bring the new fixed-wing training aircraft into service including the establishment of the Prefect TMk1 in-service support team.  More recently, Joe provided safety support to the Puma2 & Gazelle Delivery Team by producing the Gazelle AH Mk1 risk-to-life safety artefacts.

Joe has also recently completed an MSc in Safety and Risk Leadership and will be leading an Air System Safety Case tasking into AirCap for a surveillance aircraft and further developing the Osprey Space safety offering.

Osprey provided a great service from the outset, and ensured that all aspects of the Safety Assurance documentation were accurate, robust and concise. It has been a pleasure working with the Osprey Safety Team, and I’d have no hesitation recommending their services to others.

To help find an acceptable interim mitigation for a proposed Wind Farm, LSA approached Osprey as recognised leaders in Wind Turbine Mitigation methods. As part of their remit Osprey reviewed the potential capabilities of the local radar as well as other mitigation technologies in relation to the anticipated turbine effects and our Operational Requirement. Based on their assessment of the available solutions, the local airspace environment and the demanding project timescales, the use of a Non Automatic Initiation Zone (NAIZ) was proposed.

Osprey subsequently developed the Radar Sensor Safety Case to include the NAIZ and supported LSA through the subsequent discussions with CAA SARG. As a result of these discussions the NAIZ was accepted into operational service prior to turbine operation.

The solution has subsequently worked well and has proven itself to be the right decision for the mitigation of the Wind Farm.

I would readily recommend Osprey to any ANSP seeking supportive and informed assistance in establishing mitigation of Wind Turbines on Approach Radars.

Many thanks to the Osprey team for developing and delivering the recent ATM Safety Awareness and ATM Safety Practitioners courses for Cobham.  The feedback from my team has been extremely positive.  Everyone enjoyed the training and felt that they could apply the learning across many of our current programmes.  The extensive ATM & Safety experience and expertise of the Osprey course tutors was very apparent, which contributed to the overall success of the training.

Quality & Safety Manager, Cobham

The whole team has provided an exceptional service and delivered all aspects of the consultancy contract on time, on cost and without any problems or unforeseen difficulties. It is testament to their relationship with key individuals at the CAA that any issues are quickly resolved to allow the application process to continue without delays. The whole experience with Osprey Consulting has been professional, informative and engaged at all times… well done Team Osprey!

The successful delivery of this significant ATC project would not have been possible were it not for the support of Osprey CSL and I’d like to thank them for their work.  Working closely with our project team, they helped to take an aspiration and turn it into a viable project that could be delivered within time and on budget. We have worked with Osprey before and I’m pleased with their technical knowledge and willingness to further enhance the technical excellence already present within our airport in order to form the most effective delivery team possible.
