“Earning the WYVERN Wingman PRO certification is truly an honor. We are thrilled to have joined a select group of aviation companies who are also committed to safety at every level of our operations on the ground and in the air. I am especially thankful to all our Tavaero team members who have played a role in ensuring that our company met the stringent requirements necessary to secure this prestigious Wingman PRO certification,” commented Marcela White, Tavaero co-owner.
