Allentown, MN – Global Air Charters, Inc. has secured its designation of WYVERN Wingman Certified Operator following a successful Audit, conducted by WYVERN in October 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.
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.
“WYVERN is very happy to declare that Global Air Charters is a Wingman Operator. Adhering to the Wingman Standard is evidence that the organization has a culture of excellence that is far above their peers,” says Andrew Day, WYVERN’s Senior Vice President, Operations.
