ExecuJet gets key MEA Wyvern status
Dubai, June 20, 2012
ExecuJet, a top business aviation organisation, said it has won key Wyvern recognition for setting high standards of safety in flight operations and maintenance in Africa, Middle East and Australasian (Australia and New Zealand) region.
The company said it has successfully completed audits to become Wyvern Wingman members or have renewed their Wyvern status. In order to achieve this status, operators must undergo an on-site safety audit and meet rigorous safety standards, it added.
The internationally-renowned Wingman programme acknowledges the regular use of Wyvern data – tools and software – which enables them to provide superior operations and services on a daily basis.
Wyvern demands its operators meet safety standards that are in excess of most government regulatory agencies. Operators which pass the on-site audit also agree to regular post-auditing, which requires them to provide up-to-date information regarding aircraft and crew.
ExecuJet’s Australian Wyvern approval was first granted in 2002 and has since been renewed four times. ExecuJet Middle East renewed its approval in April, having first been granted such status in 2007.
On the new status, Quintin Cairncross, the group director flight operations said, “ExecuJet is proud to be receiving safety endorsements from highly valued companies and organisations. Wyvern is one of the most recognised approvals to hold and once again our dedicated workforce has demonstrated just how seriously we take safety and quality,” he added.
The approval adds to ExecuJet’s long list of flight safety certifications for their worldwide operations. These include Flight Safety Foundation Bars (Australia), the Hart Aviation Safety Audit, (Africa, Australia) as well as the Shell Aviation Audit (Australia, ME).
In addition, ExecuJet Africa recently collected the Argus Platinum Rating for 2012. It is the only operator to have received the Platinum Rating as a charter operator on the African continent.
Together with Australasia, Europe and the Middle East, ExecuJet Africa is also IS-BAO certificated by the International Business Aviation Council (IBAC).-TradeArabia News Service
