IXAIR has secured its designation of WYVERN Wingman Certified Operator following a successful audit, conducted by WYVERN in June 2023. 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.
“Obtaining WYVERN Wingman certification demonstrates IXAIR’s ongoing commitment to maintaining the highest standards of safety and service within our aircraft fleet. Since its creation over twenty years ago, IXAIR has always focused its development on safety, and this label is a concrete expression of the excellence and remarkable commitment of its teams”. Underlines Jenny Perrot, Director of Development and Member of Executive Board, before adding “Obtaining WYVERN certification consolidates our development strategy for IXAIR launched in the United States at the beginning of 2023, and this label enables us to assure our American customers that IXAIR is one of the safest French business aviation companies in the world”.
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 congratulate IXAIR for achieving Wingman certification, which validates their effective safety management system and excellence in managing risk within their flight operations and aircraft maintenance. Wingman Operators stand out from others by allowing WYVERN to assess their conformity to best practices and continually monitor their information related to safety,” says Andrew Day, WYVERN Senior VP Operations.
