Clay Lacy Aviation, Inc. Renews their WYVERN Wingman Certification!


Van Nuys, CA:  Clay Lacy Aviation has once more secured its designation of WYVERN Wingman Certified Operator following a successful Audit, conducted by WYVERN in August 2021. 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.

WYVERN Wingman Operators are evaluated by the Wingman Standard criteria. The scope of the evaluation includes an evaluation 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.

“WYVERN celebrates Clay Lacy’s achievement. Successful completion of the Wingman audit is proof that their leadership has identified safety as a core value and their team embraces excellence at all levels,” says Sonnie Bates, WYVERN CEO.
