Part 135 operators Skybird Aviation and Davinci Jets have once more secured its designation as a Wyvern Wingman certified operators by maintaining Wingman status through the Flight Leader Programme.

Davinci Jets CEO Eric Legvold says: “I want to thank Wyvern and our team for their time and expertise during the audit.

With safety as a core value, we can look forward to challenges, confident in our foundation.”
