The Luxaviation Group Renews their WYVERN Wingman Certification in Australia!


Sydney, NSW, Australia – The Luxaviation Asia Pacific has once again secured its designation of WYVERN Wingman Certified Operator following a recent successful audit conducted by WYVERN on their operations in Australia. 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.

Darren McGoldrick, Vice President of Luxaviation Asia Pacific says: “Achieving WYVERN Wingman renewal is a testament to our safety management culture.  We strive to continuously improve standards, promote safe working practices, and are committed to meeting our clients’ needs and expectations at the very highest of industry standards.”

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 commend the Luxaviation Group for successfully renewing their Wingman certification in Australia, which not only validates their safety management system for international compliance, but also verifies their conformance to the highest global standards and industry professional codes of practice in operations and aircraft maintenance,” says Andrew Day, WYVERN’s Senior Vice President, Operations.
