Tulsa, Oklahoma-based aircraft management and charter company Omni Air Transport has once again been awarded Wyvern Wingman Pro certification after achieving excellence in association with ongoing participation in Wyvern's Flight Leader Programme (FLP). Wingman Pro validates organisational safety culture utilising the most advanced safety culture evaluation tools recognised by safety experts and regulatory bodies worldwide. A safety benchmark set above Wyvern's flagship Wingman programme; Wingman Pro is the aviation industry's highest safety standard.
“Our ongoing relationship with Wyvern has been of great benefit to Omni in our quest to maintain the highest level of safety within our organisation,” says director of safety and security Larry Soles. “Like Wyvern, we consider ourselves to be a forward-looking organisation when it comes to safety. Its progressive approach to aviation safety, and its consultative demeanour are highly valued, and we look forward to working with Wyvern well into the future.”
Wyvern Wingman Pro is issued once an already established Wingman operator demonstrates effectiveness in all areas of SMS, excellence in the addressing of human factors and organisational safety culture, and continuous conformity to international standards by way of an internal audit programme.
“Omni Air Transport's certification as a Wyvern Wingman Pro 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 Wyvern CEO Sonnie Bates.
Wyvern Flight Leader coach Todd Buczek adds: “Omni Air Transport's continued commitment to maintaining an effective safety management system based on continuous improvement and just culture is highly evident. Omni's safety policies, re-enforced with continual education, effective communication and leadership continue to enhance its existing proactive safety culture.”
