Oakland, CA: PCJ Aviation, LLC doing business as Pacific Coast Jet has once more secured its designation of WYVERN Wingman Certified Operator by maintaining Wingman status through the Flight Leader Program with quarterly coaching 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.
“Pacific Coast Jet is pleased that our dedication to safety and top industry measures has resulted in assurance of the WYVERN Wingman standards. It is incumbent upon our organization to undergo regular evaluations which offer the opportunity to view the operation through a scrutinous lens and identify ways that we can elevate and refine our practices as the company continues to mature,” says Corry Lane, Director of Operations at Pacific Coast Jet.
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.
“We congratulate Pacific Coast Jet for renewing Wingman certification, which validates their effective safety management system and excellence in managing operations and aircraft maintenance. Wingman Operators stand out among their peers by allowing WYVERN to assess their conformity to best practices and continually monitor their information related to safety,” says Sonnie Bates, WYVERN CEO.
