California-based business jet charter and management company Mira Vista Aviation has been awarded Wyvern Wingman PRO certification after achieving excellence in association with ongoing participation in Wyvern's Flight Leader Program (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.
“Mira Vista Aviation'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 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.
Wyvern flight leader coach Mike Atzert adds: “The Mira Vista management team, namely the director of operations, director of safety and the director of maintenance, individually and collectively clearly understand the value of safety and quality management in their daily execution of Mira Vista business. Exacting a high level of safety risk management and assurance is fundamental to every aspect of the Mira Vista operation. This is clearly evident based upon the Flight Leader Program assessment inputs and direct discussion with the management team.”
