Our services

The aviation industry has undergone great change since its birth in 1903. Today, being forward thinking, focusing on core business and being able to respond to an increasingly large amount of variables due to globalization, changes in technology and customer behavior is crucial for the airline’s bottom line. As with countless other industries, retaining all services in-house might not only impact profitability but impair the company’s agility in a rapidly changing world.

At OSM Aviation our sole focus is on developing next generation solutions that promotes the airline’s business model. OSM Aviation merges new and innovative recruitment and crew management solutions with industry expertise to provide qualified and cost efficient personnel for Recruitment, Training, HR and Planning & Execution.

Out of 1200+ pilots invited to attend an OSM Aviation selection process, 640 simulator sessions were conducted, ending with more than 370 successful pilots who were offered contracts!

In addition OSM Aviation selected and recruited more then 1700 cabin crew over a 12 month period. After successfully having passed the pre-screening, candidates were invited to swim test, language proficency, group assessments and individual interviews depending on our airline customers needs.

OSM Aviation has all systems and administration in place to handle large volume recruitment and our own custom-build database now counts more than 35.000 pilots and cabin crew candidates looking for a new career.

For instance, some operators want to attend parts of the recruitment process, such as interview or perform simulator assessment, while others only conduct audits. However, most recruitments use the same methodology.

  OSM Aviation Academy


OSM Aviation Academy is one of the most esteemed Approved Training Organizations (ATO’s) in Europe and has provided professional flight training for both airlines and individuals since 1963. Up until recently, the flight school operated under the brand name of Scandinavian Aviation Academy (SAA).

In October 2017, OSM Aviation acquired SAA and as a natural development following the new ownership structure and the introduction of the comprehensive Airline Ready Pilots concept, SAA changed its name to the OSM Aviation Academy on April 2nd, 2018.

OSM Aviation Academy has since its establishment held a leading position in Sweden in providing professional flight training for both airlines and individuals, and the Academy is currently offering flight- and theory training in Västerås (Sweden), Arendal (Norway) and San Diego (USA).

OSM Aviation Academy offers an EASA approved integrat­ed First Officer Program, which qualifies for the required certificates and ratings needed to work as a commercial pilot, including Commercial Pilot License, ATPL Theory, Instrument Rating, Multi-Engine, Multi Crew Cooperation and Airline Preparation Course. The First Officer Program is a comprehensive and full-time program where airline-oriented flight and theory training is combined over a 20 months intensive course.

OSM Aviation does also have an EASA certified training organization for cabin crew. Today, the CC training organization is idle, but can be set-up on short notice and provide Initial and Conversion Training for Cabin Crew.

Our management is highly competent with vast experience within the Airline Industry. The organization has solid expertise in adapting the training and culture building to company specific requirements.

Mentored ab-initio pilot program

The aviation industry is experiencing extensive growth after some years of stagnation and this rises the demand for both cabin and flight crew. Since the training time is quite long for pilots, OSM Aviation has launched ab-initio training courses at a limited number of carefully selected pilot schools around Europe.
