Jet Linx Renews their WYVERN Wingman Certification! 


Omaha, NE: Jet Linx Aviation, LLC has once more secured its designation of WYVERN Wingman Certified Operator by maintaining Wingman status through the Flight Leader Program by WYVERN.  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. 

“Jet Linx’s certification as a WYVERN Wingman Operator sets them apart from other operators in the air charter industry. This achievement validates their commitment to attaining and maintaining an enduring safety culture that elevates their performance above other operators who are just beginning to embrace the value of formal safety risk management,” says Sonnie Bates, WYVERN CEO. 

“The safety of our clients and team members has always been the cornerstone of our company, as affirmed by our sixth annual all-company Safety Summit earlier this month. External safety audits from esteemed organizations such as WYVERN offer a credible third-party perspective,” said Jamie Walker, President & CEO of Jet Linx. “We are proud to continue carrying the Wingman Standard in reflection of our safety culture and continued commitment to best practices in our private jet operations.” 

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’s Flight Leader Coach Todd Buczek adds, “Congratulations and well done! Jet Linx Aviation’s pro-active approach to the achievement and sustainment of an effective Safety Management System is unquestionable. Top management’s commitment to safety as a core value is highly evident throughout the entire organization, easily identifiable by numerous industry best practices implemented within their daily operations and safety risk management processes.” Buczek continues, “Jet Linx’s diligent participation in the WYVERN Flight Leader program continues to provide an effective means of conducting periodic self-assessments through quarterly collaboration with WYVERN and is testament to their genuine commitment to continuous improvement. BRAVO ZULU!”
