Jet Linx Aviation, a locally-focused private jet management company, has set a new standard in safety with its newest WYVERN Wingman PRO certification.

Adding to existing IS-BAO Stage 3 and ARGUS Platinum Elite top safety ratings, the company said it becomes the first and only operator in the aviation industry to receive top ratings from all three major third-party auditors.

“We are immensely proud to have achieved WYVERN Wingman PRO certification,” said Jamie Walker, President & CEO of Jet Linx Aviation. “Safety has always been our top priority, and this certification is a testament of our commitment to providing the highest level of safety and service to our clients. Now holding the three most elite safety ratings in aviation, we look forward to continuing to advance our safety programs and encourage the highest safety practices throughout the industry.”

Advanced safety culture

WYVERN Wingman PRO is an advanced safety culture evaluation tool recognised by safety experts and regulatory bodies worldwide. This certification recognises Jet Linx’s commitment to safety, as evidenced by its excellence in ongoing participation in WYVERN’s Flight Leader Program (FLP). Jet Linx is one of only 12 operators in the industry to earn this safety rating.

Setting a safety benchmark above WYVERN’s flagship Wingman program, WYVERN Wingman PRO validates organisational safety culture, and is only issued once an already established Wingman operator demonstrates effectiveness in all areas of SMS; excellence in the addressing of Human Factors and Organisational Safety Culture; and continuous conformity to international standards by way of an internal audit programme.

Jet Linx’s WYVERN Wingman PRO certification becomes its third elite safety rating, following its designation as IS-BAO Stage 3 and ARGUS Platinum Elite. IS-BAO is the gold standard for business aviation worldwide, developed by the International Business Aviation Council (IBAC) and endorsed by the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA). Jet Linx has maintained the highest level of Stage 3 rating since 2015, demonstrating a fully engrained safety management culture sustained over time.

The company was also the first to attain ARGUS Platinum Elite status in November 2021, previously earning Platinum recertification from ARGUS in every cycle since 2007. Building upon the elements of the ARGUS Platinum rating, the Platinum Elite rating requires an active monitoring system to assure standards are continuously met.
