“We are pleased to have been added as a Wingman Operator in December of 2020. We greatly appreciate the WYVERN team and their extensive audit process to not only benchmark our company’s policies and procedures, but also found it be a great way to continue to grow and learn. Our fleet has increased by 10 aircraft in the past year, and are expecting to add another 6 aircraft in 2021, not only are we adding aircraft and planes, we have also dedicated the necessary resources to have our Director of Operations, Assistant Director of Operations, and Safety Director in the office,” says Kevin Wargo, CEO of Wing Aviation Group.
