Windsor Locks, CT: The Whitewind Company has once more secured its designation of WYVERN Wingman Certified Operator following a successful Audit, conducted by WYVERN in November 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.
“The Whitewind Company, since it was founded more than 25 years ago, has strived to provide customized aircraft management services with the highest level of safety to our customers. In maintaining high standards in safety, The Whitewind Company has been certified by WYVERN with the Wingman Standard for several years. These certifications along with IS-BAO and FAA’s SMSVP are an important assurance to all our customers and stakeholders that our Safety Management System is robust and constantly improving. We are proud to have achieved the Wingman Standard and IS-BAO Stage 3 through a rigorous audit process and overhaul of safety protocols and envision this as one milestone in our constant pursuit of the highest level of safety,” says John Decker, President of The Whitewind Company.
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 are proud to announce that The Whitewind Company is a Wingman Operator. Conforming to the WYVERN Wingman Standard is a testament to an organization’s culture and commitment to safety,” says Sonnie Bates, WYVERN’s CEO.
