Nashua, NH: 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 Aviation Flight Services, an air charter service provider who recently renewed their Wingman Certification in November of 2022, utilizes their Wingman membership to align their practices with professional international industry standards.
