San Luis Obispo, CA: Aviation Consultants Inc. dba ACI Jet has once more secured its designation of WYVERN Wingman Certified Operator following a successful Audit, conducted by WYVERN in April 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 recognized industry best operating practices before purchasing air charter services.
“ACI Jet Flight Operations is focused on being a center of excellence for aircraft management and charter. Adhering to the WYVERN Wingman standard is one of many ways we demonstrate our pursuit of excellence,” said Kellee Valentine, Senior VP, Flight Operations.
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 program, administrative compositions, technical documentation, pilot and aircraft records, training requirements, and maintenance operations including technician training and experience.
