License Application Support

Osprey’s expert knowledge of Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) Regulations (Conventional Aviation and Space) means we are uniquely placed to provide expert advice to Aerodrome, Advanced Air Mobility, Spaceport and Space Launch developers and operators alike.

Our staff have worked with numerous airports and aviation operators in the UK and internationally to help our clients understand how to apply, support or maintain an existing license. We are also advising UK Spaceport developers in their license application for the new space regulations and existing aviation regulations, to develop first of type space launch capability in the UK.

Our deep understanding of the regulations, our relationship with the aviation / space regulators and our knowledge of ‘what good looks like’ has been instrumental in our licensing support to our clients, based on knowledge and application of the following CAA regulations:

  • Civil Aviation Publication (CAP)168 – “Licensing of Aerodromes”
  • CAP2209 – Applying for a licence under the space industry act 2018
  • CAP2221 – Regulator’s licensing rules

At short notice Osprey picked up and delivered, to the CAA, an extremely well researched piece of UAS analysis with a number of recommendations that we can take forward into delivery. The work is high risk and will inform political decision making in the UK and set a precedent across the world. The work they have delivered to date has met the agreed scope and quality. They have delivered to the timeframe and within the cost agreed without the need to direct or oversee the detail, which was extremely important especially when one of the reasons for the commercial arrangement with Osprey was due to internal resource constraints. The review and report they have completed will feed directly into UK Government policy as well as influence European and International policy direction for RPAS.

I have been exceptionally pleased with the manner that Osprey have supported the Operator Training Delivery.  The response to requests for support particularly with a programme which has fluid timelines and often required last minute changes or short notice requests were well received.  Furthermore, on every occasion Simon Kirby was professional, flexible and accommodating ensuring we were able to meet key milestones particularly with the quick completion of the Training Reports.  Moreover, the feedback from our customers was excellent and we always received highly positive feedback on the delivery of the training.

Osprey’s detailed evaluation of Gatwick’s ATC assets highlighted their unique ability to deliver a complex requirement within a challenging timeline.  Osprey demonstrated a high level of competence and experience that clearly demonstrated their understanding of the technical landscape and the strategic needs of our airport.  Their professional and collaborative approach ensured they worked closely with all key stakeholders to deliver the intended outcomes of the study on time and on budget. We were particularly impressed by their ability to flex their resources to meet our priorities.  I have no hesitation in recommending Osprey for future aviation projects of this nature.

As part of the overarching aviation safety case for MARS Tanker, Osprey were requested at very short notice to provide independent safety assurance for the new to service Kelvin Hughes ATM radar. The task was agreed and completed within a week fully meeting Project expectations and timeline enabling the ATM case to progress to the regulatory acceptance phase on time.

Osprey has been contracted by my department since March 2014 to develop, author and maintain the Platform Safety Assessment (PSA)/ Safety Case for the UK Fleet of 22 A400M aircraft.  They have consistently demonstrated a comprehensive understanding of the A400M Type Certification Basis (TCB) as well as the various Defence Standards and Regulatory Publications that are appropriate to A400M.  Their work has been completed to the highest standards and they have offered my team flexible and pragmatic solutions to some very complex problems.  I would have no hesitation in recommending Osprey to any future organisation within the Air Safety and Airworthiness arena.
