Wyvern's Pilot & Aircraft Safety Survey (PASS) reports make safety and risk assessment visual. PASS is the most advanced trip-specific safety analysis available to charter buyers. Within seconds a buyer creating a PASS Report is presented with operator, aircraft, and pilot records and information from Wyvern's global database, compares it against a chosen standard, and presents a full evaluation in a single report. PASS gives the safety-conscious charter buyer the ability to make informed, risk-based flight decisions at their fingertips.
Results are returned in seconds and include such details as the operator’s registered name, DBA names, ARG/US assigned rating and contact. Also included is each pilot’s name, certificate type, last known PIC & total time as well as type ratings and time in the aircraft type.
In 1994 Wyvern Consulting, with little fanfare, released the first edition of The Wyvern Standard (renamed The Wingman Standard as of the Original Reissue 2014), a collection of aviation industry best practice audit standards conceived by a group of highly respected flight department managers and aviation industry experts that would comprise Wyvern’s first Customer Advisory Board (CAB). This Customer Advisory Board continues to evolve the direction and content of the standard by considering enhancements in aircraft technology and automation, changes in industry best practices, and many other areas which affect safety and risk management in business and commercial aviation.
After twenty-two years, The Wingman Standard continues to be recognized as the industry’s gold standard in aviation safety. For those charter operators choosing to commit to the Wingman program this is also an affirmation of their commitment to industry best practices and a high level of safety culture as measured through the Wyvern audit process. In addition to a very demanding audit, which measures all operational sides of the charter operation, an ongoing commitment to provide Wyvern important safety data is required.
