Nashua, New Hampshire and Boca Raton, Florida – Florida Wings Inc. has once more secured its designation of WYVERN Wingman Certified Operator following a successful Audit, conducted by WYVERN in June 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.
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.
The Wingman Standard is based on ICAO standards for commercial air transport, Safety Management International Collaboration Group’s (SMICG) standards for SMS, and industry best practices that are common among the most sophisticated operators around the world. “We are proud to announce that Florida Wings renewed their certification as a Wingman Operator. The Wingman Standard validates the organization’s alignment with ICAO standards for commercial flight operations and SMS which facilitates their ability to operate globally”, says Sonnie Bates, WYVERN CEO.
