17.01.2012 - DC Aviation Wyvern recertified
DC Aviation strives for the highest standards in aviation and safety. “While others talk about safety, we have been living it for over 10 years.” says Michael Kuhn, Managing Director of DC Aviation. “Our goal is to far surpass the essential, legally required domestic and international quality and safety requirements. As one of the leading audit standards, developed in cooperation with the most sophisticated and demanding corporate flight departments in the world The Wyvern StandardTM is an essential part of our philosophy.”
The Wyvern Wingman certification is the foundation of Wyvern’s new operator safety program. The 20-year old company recently reconfigured their entire portfolio of safety programs to simplify the sourcing process for buyers looking to fly in the safest aircraft available. The basis of the Wyvern Wingman program is a thorough audit of a company’s aircraft and facilities, but the program doesn’t end with the audit.
Post-auditing of an operator is required to keep up with particular reporting requirements. Operator, aircraft, and crew background checks happen 24/7 in the Wyvern database. This ensures that The Wyvern Audit is valid through the term of the recommendation and that it is more than just a snapshot of what the audit team saw while they were on site with the charter operator.
Wyvern uses state-of-the-art technology and hands-on data mining to obtain accurate, real-time data, including training documents, crew currency, insurance levels, maintenance training, and aircraft hours as well as additional relevant information. Thousands of data points are reviewed both manually and within the system every day. With the only system available that evaluates both process and compliance, Wyvern’s approach to safety is unique in the industry.
