Whitewind Renews their WYVERN Wingman Certification!


Windsor Locks, CT: The Whitewind Company has once more secured its designation of WYVERN Wingman Certified Operator by maintaining Wingman status through the Flight Leader Program with quarterly coaching by WYVERN. The Whitewind Company has proudly maintained Wingman status since 2015. The WYVERN Wingman Standard, the first air charter audit standard in the aviation industry, provides the gold standard in safety that allows air charter customers to assess performance expectations against recognized industry best operating practices before purchasing air charter services. 

The Whitewind Company is humbled and honored to have attained WYVERN’s certification of Wingman Certified Operator. The WYVERN Flight Leader Program has enabled us to provide our customers with the strongest base of safety in global flight maintenance operations. The certification shows our employees’ strong daily commitment to safety and gives our clients the confidence that we continue to safety, comfortably, and reliably meet and exceed their aviation travel needs. We are grateful to our WYVERN mentors and coach for giving us the opportunity to prove our benchmark and leadership in aviation safety. The Whitewind Company and the WYVERN Flight Leader Program are the way to safety excellence,” says Michael Sundsted, The Whitewind Company’s Director of Safety.

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. 

Whitewind’s certification as a WYVERN Wingman Operator sets them apart from other operators in the air charter industry. By opting to renew their Wingman certification by enrolling in WYVERN’s Flight Leader Program – the first and most effective progressive safety partnership – Whitewind once again demonstrates their forward-thinking approach to safety. Well done to the Whitewind team,” says Andrew Day, WYVERN’s Senior Vice President of Operations.
