Vista America operators reaffirm Wingman certification
The recertification of XOJet Aviation and Western Air Charter isn't simply about exceeding expectations, it's about setting them, according to Vista.
Earning this gold standard for safety risk management further solidifies Vista America's position as a trusted partner for travellers.

Vista America air carriers XOJet Aviation and Western Air Charter have renewed their certification as Wyvern Wingman operators. This certification was achieved through ongoing participation in Wyvern's Flight Leader Program.

David Stanley, president of Vista America, says: "Our recertification as Wyvern Wingman is a testament to our unwavering commitment to safety and operational excellence. We are proud to be recognised among the industry's elite operators, consistently exceeding the highest safety standards."

Leona Qi, president US of Vista, adds: "When VistaJet and XO clients take flight, they deserve the confidence of industry-leading safety and peace of mind. This recertification isn't simply about exceeding expectations, it's about setting them."

The Wyvern Wingman Standard is a comprehensive audit that assesses an operator's adherence to the most stringent safety practices. The scope of the evaluation includes an assessment of operational activities, a review of the company's operational history and safety records, its safety management system, an internal evaluation programme, administrative compositions, technical documentation, pilot and aircraft records, training requirements and maintenance operations including technician training and experience.

Andrew Day, Wyvern's senior vice president, operations, says: "We congratulate these Vista America air carriers for renewing their Wingman certification, which validates their effective safety management system as well as their excellence in managing operations and aircraft maintenance. Wingman operators stand out from their peers by allowing Wyvern to assess their conformity to best practices and continually monitor their information related to safety."
