Sun Air Jets is pleased to announce it will be the first WYVERN Certified Flight Leader in the nation. Issued by WYVERN Ltd, the leader in aviation safety risk management and training, this new safety audit rating is a testament to Sun Air Jets’ dedication to high quality, risk-averse safety and operational processes that permeates company culture.

The progressive WYVERN Flight Leader Program provides operators alternative and innovative pathways to continuous improvement. Focusing less on regular auditing, and more on safety management system (SMS) effectiveness, as well as human factors and organizational culture, operators are coached by industry veterans in a progressive, quarterly self-assessment and validation cycle with the intent of enhancing safety culture. The Flight Leader Certificate is the pinnacle achievement of the Flight Leader Program.

“WYVERN celebrates Sun Air Jets’ achievement. It requires discipline and professionalism to become a Wingman, and it takes sound leadership and effective management of human and organizational factors to be a Flight Leader. A Flight Leader inspires other Wingman Operators to reach higher and attain new levels of excellence. Sun Air Jets’ recognition as a Certified Flight Leader is proof that their leadership is focused on their organization’s safety culture and the key human factors that matter most in aviation safety,” says Sonnie Bates, CEO of WYVERN Ltd.

“Sun Air Jets takes great pride in being the first operator to receive this distinctive award and we are grateful to WYVERN for the opportunity,” says Andreas Mauritzson, Director of Safety and Vice President of Business Strategy.  “We feel that it is essential to continue to put safety as our utmost priority.  Sun Air Jets is dedicated to positioning itself as a leader in this field to ensure our clients the exceptional experience they deserve.”

Sun Air Jets is extremely proud of this achievement and evolutionary step in safety and safety culture. The Certificate joins a long list of previously earned safety ratings: IS/BAO Stage 3, WYVERN Flight Leader, ARG/US Platinum, and the Air Charter Safety Foundation (ACSF), an exclusive achievement held only by four private jet companies out of 2,000 charter operators.

Numerous operators have joined the Program in the last 12 months, and the first operators through the Program are now demonstrating effectiveness across all necessary areas of the Program to warrant the Certificate. More Flight Leader Certificates will be issued in the coming weeks.  Learn more about WYVERN’s Flight Leader Program.
