Nashua, New Hampshire & Luqa, Malta – VistaJet Limited has once more secured its designation of WYVERN Wingman Certified Operator following a successful Audit, conducted by WYVERN in July 2020. The WYVERN Wingman Standard, the first air charter audit standard in the aviation industry, provides a safety benchmark that allows air charter consumers to assess performance expectations against recognized industry best operating practices before purchasing air charter services.
Nick van der Meer, VistaJet’s Chief Operating Officer states “At VistaJet we place safety, security and wellbeing of customers and colleagues above all else — it has always been and will continue to be our number one objective across our global operations. We are proud to continue our WYVERN Wingman certification which further highlights our ongoing commitment to safety as a company-wide priority.”
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.
“VistaJet’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, CEO of WYVERN Ltd.
