STA Jets Renews their WYVERN Wingman Certification! 


Costa Mesa, CA: Superior Transportation Associates Inc. has once more secured its designation of WYVERN Wingman Certified Operator following a successful Audit, conducted by WYVERN in June 2022. 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. 

“We applaud STA Jets’ accomplishment as a Wingman Operator, which signifies the organization’s commitment to embracing safety as a core value. Wingman Operators not only conform to international standards, but they also embrace transparency with their safety data so end users can trust their decisions,” says Sonnie Bates, WYVERN CEO. 

Kurt Belcher, founder of STA, elaborated on the importance of WYVERN certification for STA. “It’s no overstatement in saying that without the highest industry standards of safety, STA Jets would not exist. We applaud the dedication all our pilots and employees continually show, and we tip our hats to the folks at WYVERN for making our commitment to safety transparent, stronger, and easier to communicate.” 

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.
