Skybird and Davinci renew Wingman certifications
Two US operators, one in California and the other in North Carolina, have renewed their Wyvern Wingman certified operator designations.
Davinci Jets is based at Charlotte Douglas International airport.

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. Since 2009, Davinci Jets has partnered with Wyvern to maintain a growing safety management system that complemented our operational growth. With safety as a core value, we can look forward to challenges, confident in our foundation.”

Skybird Aviation operates a Gulfstream G650 from Van Nuys airport in California, and Davinci Jets is based at Charlotte Douglas International airport in North Carolina.

“Wyvern is very happy to declare that Skybird Aviation is a Wingman operator. Adhering to the Wingman Standard is evidence that the organisation has a culture of excellence that is far above its peers,” says Sonnie Bates, Wyvern CEO. “Wyvern [also] celebrates Davinci Jets' achievement. Successful completion of the Wingman audit is proof that its leadership has identified safety as a core value and its team embraces excellence at all levels."

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.

Wyvern Wingman operators are evaluated by the Wingman standard criteria. The scope of the evaluation includes an assessment of operational activities, review on the company 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.
