Cove Aviation Partners Renews their Wingman Certification!


Los Angeles, California –  Cove Aviation has once more secured its designation of WYVERN Wingman Certified Operator following a successful Audit, conducted by WYVERN in October 2020. 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.

Jason Berg, Director of Operations for Cove Aviation, states, “WYVERN Wingman and IS-BAO Stage 3 exemplifies Cove Aviation’s commitment to safety. Our vigilant and hyper-focused approach to all aspects of safety is something our entire team of aviation professionals is extremely proud of and it gives our preferred customers peace of mind that when they fly with Cove, they fly safe.”


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.

 “Cove Aviation’s certification as a WYVERN Wingman Operator sets them apart from other operators in the air charter industry.
