Keystone Aviation, a TAC Air company based in Salt Lake City, Utah, has once more secured its designation as a Wyvern Wingman Certified Operator, following a successful audit conducted by Wyvern in November 2020. The Wyvern Wingman Standard provides a safety benchmark that allows air charter customers to assess performance expectations against recognised industry best operating practices before purchasing air charter services.
“As private jet charter and management expand to meet market needs, it is our focus at Keystone to provide personalised, flexible and safe travel for individuals and corporations with the highest level of service and safety across every aspect of operating aircraft,” says COO Aaron Fish. “Being a part of the Wingman certification for the past 18 years we are able to continually monitor and improve our safety culture to provide the best service available. Holding Wingman certification lets our customers know we are part of the best in the business.”
Wyvern Wingman Operators are evaluated by the Wingman Standard criteria. The scope of the evaluation includes an evaluation of operational activities, a review of the company's operational history and safety records, safety management system (SMS), internal evaluation programme, administrative compositions, technical documentation, pilot and aircraft records, training requirements and maintenance operations including technician training and experience.
“The Keystone Aviation certification as a Wyvern Wingman Operator sets it apart from other operators in the air charter industry. This achievement validates its commitment to attaining and maintaining an enduring safety culture that elevates its performance above other operators who are just beginning to embrace the value of formal safety risk management,” says Sonnie Bates, Wyvern CEO.
