Talon Air Renews their Wingman Certification!


Farmingdale, New York – Talon Air has once more secured its designation of WYVERN Wingman Certified Operator following a successful Audit, conducted by WYVERN in March 2021. 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. 

“I am very proud of our team for the hard work they put in during these audits, as well as their year round efforts for a Just Safety Culture,” says James Chitty, Talon Air CEO. He continues, “The wellbeing of our team and clients is second to none. Safety is and always has been the most important function of our growing organization.” 

 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. 

“Talon Air’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.
