Three more renew Wyvern Wingman certification
Three companies have renewed their Wyvern Wingman certifications, validating their commitment to safety as a core value.

US provider of jet card, joint ownership and aircraft management programmes Jet Linx Aviation, Pennsylvania business jet operator Corporate Air and New York business jet charter and management provider Zenflight have once more secured their designations as Wyvern Wingman certified operators by maintaining Wingman status through the Flight Leader Program by Wyvern. 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.

“The safety of our clients and team members has always been the cornerstone of our company, as affirmed by our sixth annual all-company Safety Summit earlier this month. External safety audits from esteemed organisations such as Wyvern offer a credible third-party perspective,” says Jet Linx president and CEO Jamie Walker. “We are proud to continue carrying the Wingman standard in reflection of our safety culture and continued commitment to best practices in our private jet operations.”

“Jet Linx'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,” says Sonnie Bates, Wyvern CEO.

Wyvern Flight Leader coach Todd Buczek adds: “Congratulations and well done. Jet Linx Aviation's pro-active approach to the achievement and sustainment of an effective safety management system is unquestionable. Top management's commitment to safety as a core value is highly evident throughout the entire organisation, easily identifiable by numerous industry best practices implemented within their daily operations and safety risk management processes. Jet Linx's diligent participation in the Wyvern Flight Leader programme continues to provide an effective means of conducting periodic self-assessments through quarterly collaboration with Wyvern and is testament to its genuine commitment to continuous improvement.”

“At the end of the day," says Corporate Air president Mark Schreiner, "I have to thank my team. That is who helps us achieve such great accomplishments. We have gone through a lot in these incredibly challenging times with private aviation. We have had to reinvent the way we do things at Corporate Air, but safety has always been of the utmost importance to us. It is at the core of everything we do.”

“Zenflight is committed to safety and highly professional flight operations. Safety will always be our priority, and we will be persistent in continuously demonstrating high safety consciousness in our daily flight operations,” says Zenflight COO and director of operations Ray Torres Jr.
