February 21, 2023

We’re proud to report that we have maintained our WYVERN Wingman Certified Operator designation following a successful audit in November 2022. WYVERN Wingman Standard, the first air charter audit standard in the aviation industry, provides a safety benchmark for charter customers to assess performance expectations against recognized industry best operating practices before purchasing booking charter services.

The designation is proof of HeliFlite Shares’ commitment to safety and excellence at all levels, according to Sonnie Bates, WYVERN CEO.
