We Welcome Elevate Jet as a New Wingman Operator!


Seabrook, NH – Elevate Jet has secured its designation of WYVERN Wingman Certified Operator following a successful audit, conducted by WYVERN in June 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.

Elevate Jet has demonstrated their unwavering commitment to safety by successfully completing its WYVERN Wingman audit and certification, one of the highest possible achievements.  “Elevate Jet is unwaveringly committed to only the best safety practices, which is proven by our Wingman Certification, among other prestigious ratings,” said Doug Chouinard, Elevate Jet’s Director of Operations. “We are extremely proud of our team at every level of operation. Working closely with WYVERN and our Director of Safety, we hope to continue providing that sense of transparency and security that the aviation industry needs.”

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.

“WYVERN is very happy to declare that Elevate Jet is a Wingman Operator. Adhering to the Wingman Standard is evidence that the organization has a culture of excellence that is far above their peers,” says Sonnie Bates, WYVERN CEO.
