Van Nuys, California-based aircraft charter and management company Cove Aviation Partners has once more secured its designation as a Wyvern Wingman certified operator following a successful audit, conducted by Wyvern in November 2022. 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.
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.
“We are proud to announce that Cove Aviation is a Wingman operator. Conforming to the Wyvern Wingman Standard is a testament to an organisation's culture and commitment to safety,” says Wyvern CEO Sonnie Bates.
