OSM Aviation About Us

About Us

With the philosophy "It's all about people" we have taken the Aviation industry one step further - and today we're the leading global provider of top qualified service-minded aircrew. We contribute to our customers success from the Flight Attendant's 'good morning' to the sound of the pilot landing safely on the runway.

We are strong and competent in every part of the value chain - from recruitment, training, management to planning and executing. OSM Aviation is the first Company to offer Total Crew Management. But the heart and soul of OSM Aviation is not about how many aircraft we manage - it all comes down to attracting and sustaining the best people. People who never cut corners. People who do it right every single time. People with high awareness on safety, service and customer satisfaction.

At OSM Aviation; It's all about people.

Our Team
OSM Aviation History

Our History

After a fantastic career in aviation and achieving his goal as a Captain and Chief Flight Instructor in SAS, Espen Høiby felt the call to look for new horizons – this time on the ground.

Inspired by the achievements of OSM Maritime Group – a leading global provider of Crew Management Services for the maritime and offshore industry – Espen teamed with Bjørn Tore Larsen, OSM Maritime Group’s founder, and set up OSM Aviation.

OSM Aviation entered the market in 2013, with a wish to renew the aviation industry, by introducing a new business model of how to employ, attract and manage crews as a long-term and responsible employer.

OSM Aviation has in record time grown from zero to over 5000 employees in only four years and has today many international airlines on our customer list. We have also entered into close cooperation with a number of international organizations as well as flight schools, where we recruit candidates directly after graduating.
