Audits & Assessments

The Wingman Audit is WYVERN’s proprietary audit standard in conjunction with our signature membership. It is considered one of the most reputable and recognized standards in the aviation industry. Going above and beyond regulations, the Wingman Standard is defined by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) for Operation of Aircraft (Annex 6) and Safety Management (Annex 19) and refined by WYVERN’s suite of software tools to facilitate analysis and conformity.
The Wingman Certification is recognized by industry stakeholders and end-users as the premier sign of quality and safety.
Corporate Wingman Audit
A Corporate / Part 91 audit is typically a two or three day onsite evaluation that focuses on safety management system effectiveness, organizational structure, training programs, standard operating procedures, aircraft maintenance, occupational health and safety, and security. Emphasis is placed on human and organizational factors. A safety culture assessment can be included.
Mission audits are mission-specific reports that provide insight to a charter operator that is similar to an audit but with a more focused directive.
The report includes a review of the pilots, aircraft maintenance, operator history, aircraft performance, safety management, photos of the planned route / landing site, and potential risk factors.
Mission Audits are an economical way production/film companies, universities, VIPs, and niche industries can evaluate risk, safety, and operational factors of Airline, Charter, and Private Operators worldwide.
