Solairus Aviation Renews their WYVERN Wingman Certification!


Petaluma, CA: Solairus Aviation has once more secured its designation of WYVERN Wingman Certified Operator following a successful Audit, conducted by WYVERN in March 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.

WYVERN 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.

“We congratulate Solairus 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.
