WYVERN Issues First Ever Flight Leader Certificate!


Nashua, New Hampshire – WYVERN is pleased to announce Sun Air Jets of Camarillo, CA as the first Certified Flight Leader! The progressive Flight Leader Program provides operators alternative and innovative pathways to continuous improvement. Focusing less on regular auditing, and more on SMS effectiveness, as well as human factors and organizational culture, operators are coached by industry veterans in a progressive, quarterly self-assessment and validation cycle with the intent of enhancing safety culture. The program provides pathways for operators of every level of advancement, ultimately culminating in the pinnacle of the program, the Flight Leader Certificate. Further, the program allows the operator to initially gain new and/or maintain existing Wingman certification without on-site audits. Flight Leader logo

It requires discipline and professionalism to become a Wingman, and it takes sound leadership and effective management of human and organizational factors to be a Flight Leader. A Flight Leader inspires other Wingman Operators to reach higher and attain new levels of excellence. Sun Air Jet’s recognition as a Certified Flight Leader is proof that their leadership is focused on their organization’s safety culture and the key human factors that matter most in aviation safety,” says Sonnie Bates, CEO, WYVERN Ltd.

“Sun Air Jets takes great pride in being the first operator to receive this distinctive award and we are grateful to WYVERN for the opportunity,” says Andreas Mauritzson, Director of Safety and Vice President of Business Strategy. “We feel that it is essential to continue to put safety as our utmost priority.
