Wheels Up repeats its Wyvern Wingman certification
The scope of the evaluation includes an assessment of operational activities, review on the company operational history and safety records, SMS, internal evaluation programme and plenty more besides.

Wheels Up Private Jets has once more secured its designation as a Wyvern Wingman certified operator following a successful audit, conducted by Wyvern in June 2023. 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.

Wheels Up Private Jets renewal of the Wyvern Wingman certification demonstrates our steadfast dedication to maintaining the highest levels of safety and service,” says Allan L. Mann, FRAeS, VP, safety and security at Wheels Up.

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.

Wheels Up Private Jets' 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 that are just beginning to embrace the value of formal safety risk management,” concludes Sonnie Bates, Wyvern CEO.
