Jet Aviation Flight Services, the US charter division of Jet Aviation, has been designated as a Wyvern Wingman Certified Operator once more, following a successful audit conducted by Wyvern in February 2021. The Wyvern Wingman Standard, the first air charter audit standard in the aviation industry, provides a safety benchmark that allows air charter customers to assess performance expectations against recognised industry best operating practices before purchasing air charter services.
Wyvern Wingman Operators are evaluated by the Wingman Standard criteria. The scope of the evaluation includes an evaluation of operational activities, review of the company's operational history and safety records, SMS, internal evaluation programme, administrative compositions, technical documentation, pilot and aircraft records, training requirements and maintenance operations including technician training and experience.
“As a global business aviation service provider committed to operational excellence, safety is a top priority and core company value at Jet Aviation,” says Leslie Cheshier, VP of owner and charter services, Jet Aviation USA. “We are delighted to renew our Wingman certification, which demonstrates our ongoing commitment to the safety and security of our customers, partners and employees.”
Wyvern CEO Sonnie Bates adds: “Jet Aviation's 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.”
