XOJET Aviation Renews its WYVERN Wingman Certification!


Brisbane, California: XOJET Aviation has once more secured its designation of WYVERN Wingman Certified Operator following a successful Audit conducted by WYVERN in June 2021. The WYVERN Wingman Standard, the aviation industry’s first air charter audit standard, provides a safety benchmark that allows air charter customers to assess performance expectations against recognized industry best operating practices before purchasing air charter services. 

Todd Hattaway, SVP Maintenance Operations at XOJET Aviation said: “Our team has an unwavering commitment to safety, and we are proud to continue our Wingman certification. We work year-round to ensure that we maintain a robust safety culture in all areas of our operations and this achievement further highlights our priority.” 

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. 

“WYVERN is very happy to declare that XOJET Aviation continues as a Wingman Operator. Adhering to the Wingman Standard is evidence that the organization has a culture of excellence that is far above their peers,” says Sonnie Bates, WYVERN CEO.
