Farnborough, 7th January 2019 – TAG Aviation (UK) Ltd has successfully received renewed accreditation to the Wyvern Wingman safety program following a rigorous onsite safety audit conducted by Wyvern.
The Wyvern Wingman standard is globally acknowledged as the industry’s benchmark in aviation safety and reflects a commitment to current aviation best practice and the highest level of safety and protocol. Wingman operators must successfully pass a Wingman audit which demands transparency with respect to safety records, operational history and operating procedures, pilot experience, established training practices and a close evaluation of critical programs such as the Safety Management System and Emergency Response Plan.
Safety is one of TAG Aviation’s core values and successful completion of the Wyvern Wingman audit is an assurance to customers, industry partners and employees of the on-going commitment to maintain the highest standards at all times. “We are proud to have had our prestigious Wyvern Wingman status renewed. It is a hugely important endorsement within the business aviation industry and underpins our investment in providing best-in-class service and operations”, said Patricia Davis, Head of Compliance and Safety, TAG (UK) Ltd.
Sonnie Bates, CEO of Wyvern added: “The ability to continually meet the Wingman Standard benchmark is testament to an organisation’s commitment to safety. This certification is a testament to TAG Aviation’s continuing commitment to the highest levels of safety as well to operating the highest levels of industry accepted best practices. Their commitment to continually improving quality and safety has made them an industry leader in safety culture.”
