SkyStream and Best Jets renew Wyvern Wingman certifications
26 North Aviation and Best Jets are Wingman operators. Conforming to the Wyvern Wingman Standard, they believe, is a testament to an organisation's culture and commitment to safety.
Maintaining the Wingman Standard for the last 10 years demonstrates the dedication, excellence and professionalism the Best Jets team exhibits year after year.

Allentown, Pennsylvania-based Part 135 business jet operator 26 North Aviation Inc dba SkyStream Jet, and Minnesota-based charter and management company Midwest Aero Club dba Best Jets International, have once more secured their designations as a Wyvern Wingman certified operator following a successful audit conducted by Wyvern in August and September 2022 respectively. 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.

“Renewing our Wingman certification is the result of our commitment and persistent focus on maintaining the highest safety standards at Best Jets," says safety manager Brandon Grell. "Maintaining the Wingman Standard for the last 10 years demonstrates the dedication, excellence and professionalism our team exhibits year after year.”

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.

““Wyvern celebrates their achievements. Successful completion of the Wingman audit is proof that the leadership has identified safety as a core value and its team embraces excellence at all levels,” says Wyvern CEO Sonnie Bates.
