L.J. Aviation Achieves Prestigious Wingman Certification from Wyvern

L.J. Aviation has successfully achieved Wingman Certification from Wyvern Ltd., which offers one of the most demanding air carrier safety certifications in the air charter industry. To be considered as a Wingman Certified Operator, companies must actively demonstrate their commitment to leading risk management practices and have a strong safety culture. Operators are continuously monitored and must maintain up-to-date company data and documentation on Wyvern’s aviation intelligence platform. Wingman Certified Operators are required to successfully complete onsite audits every two years where flight operations, fleet maintenance, company business practices, safety and quality management systems, and physical aircraft inspections are evaluated against The Wingman Standard.

The Wingman Standard was the first commercial audit safety standard in business aviation, and is carefully revised by Wyvern’s advisory board as aviation safety practices evolve. The audit is either pass or fail, and certification is one of the most challenging and prestigious to achieve and uphold.

“It is with great enthusiasm we welcome L.J. Aviation to the global network of Wyvern Certified Operators. By embracing The Wingman Standard L.J. Aviation has gone beyond minimum regulatory requirements and become an industry leader in safety culture. L.J. Aviation’s professionalism, commitment to world-class service, uncompromising excellence and attention to detail are a natural fit for the Wingman program and for providing charter to our corporate and retail clients.” says Art Dawley, Wyvern CEO.

“At L.J. Aviation, creating a pleasant and memorable customer experience is at the core of all we do. Being a Wingman Certified Operator affirms industry credibility, and signifies our commitment to excellence”, states Edward M. Kilkeary Jr., President of Operations at L.J. Aviation.

With their Wingman Certification, Latrobe, PA-based L.J. Aviation now provides Wingman Standard Pilot & Aircraft Safety Survey (PASS) trip due-diligence reports on its global fleet of business jets as part of Wyvern’s PASS program. L.J. Aviation operates over 20 light, medium, and heavy jets for charter as well as a Bell 407 helicopter. The company’s Wingman Standard PASS Reports and gap analyses measure over 125 data points confirming audit status, aircraft, crew qualifications, crew currency, and insurance to help charter buyers make informed, risk-based decisions for every flight.
