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.
