WYVERN Wingman PRO – Building on the Best


Nashua, NH, USA:  WYVERN, the industry’s leading aviation safety organization, has taken a bold step in once again raising the bar for private aviation operators by establishing WingmanPRO certification as the industry’s highest aviation safety standard.  Occasionally imitated but never duplicated, WingmanPRO leads the way to improved aviation safety.

Building upon the flagship Wingman program, WYVERN launched its ground-breaking Flight Leader Program in 2018, incorporating continual monitoring versus the traditional biennial audit. WYVERN’s Flight Leader Program includes a constant review of the operator’s safety performance and operational practices to ensure they align with industry best practices and international standards.

Not resting on its Wingman laurels, WYVERN’s WingmanPRO validates organizational safety culture utilizing the most advanced safety culture evaluation tools recognized by safety experts and regulatory bodies worldwide.  This certification is available for all operators in WYVERN’s Flight Leader Program and legacy Wingman audit program.

“We partner with top professional operators by building healthy, critical, yet constructive relationships with each of them.  As a result, we evaluate their safety culture holistically and monitor their performance to ensure their SMS and culture do not drift away from excellence. The WingmanPRO designation recognizes Wingman Operators with WYVERN validated healthy safety cultures, using the most sophisticated tools in the industry,” says Sonnie Bates, WYVERN CEO.  

In addition to our certified Wingman operators, WYVERN is pleased to list Crew Aviation, Omni Air Transport, Planet Nine Private Air, and Sun Air Jets as WingmanPRO operators, with dozens more working their way towards this distinction.
