PRIVATE JET SAFETY
If you’re booking a private jet for the first time or you have been flying regular, the same still applies. When you fly private, safety should be your top priority, not price. Your safety is our number one priority which is why we don’t compromise when it comes to choosing a private jet operator for your flight. We will only ever work with reputable charter operators and our choice is not determined by price alone.
Due to the limited external scrutiny of private jet operators, it’s extremely important that you charter the correct aircraft and use the best operators available for your flight. As your broker we will inform you about the best practices for safety in the private jet industry. Not only will we research the operator, we will also check the audit history and if any problems have arisen with the operator.

The standard of the CAA and the FAA are the minimum requirements in order to fly you safely in the skies. A Wyvern Wingman operator will keep you flying higher in an aircraft that has passed and exceeded the requirements set by the CAA.
The need for transparency when you charter your jet is also key to a safe flight, we will give you all the essential details of the aircraft such as the year of manufacture, registration, any refurbishments, and its history. More and more of our discerning clients are now basing their purchasing decisions on more than just trip cost.
They are looking to us to provide them with assurances that they are booking a safe and legal flight. We have access to the data needed to research operators and provide you with verification that each trip meets and exceeds their requested safety requirements. What we do is look for the operator that hires and trains their staff to the highest industry standards and maintains their aircraft and exceeds the standards set by the CAA and are Wyvern Registered.
Registered operators supply data and documentation which enable Wyvern to verify specific safety information regarding aircraft and crew for a given trip. Registered operators do not undergo a Wyvern on site audit.
This is to certify that the assigned pilot is fully certified, properly type rated, has met flight time requirements and has a current medical and training records. Operator checks confirm that the operator has a valid AOC (Air Operators Certificate) on file, the aircraft is registered and sufficient aircraft insurance is in place.
All Wyvern registered operators choose to commit to the programme, showing you their commitment to industry best practices and a high level of safety culture as measured through the Wyvern process.
For most of the discerning charter buyers in the marketplace, it is no longer enough just to say that an operator is safe. The result is that you and your colleagues, friends and family, fly on an aircraft that is safer and the company is among the elite.
We have a genuine commitment to your safety at all times, which is why Falcona always perform due diligence before putting you on an aircraft. If we feel that the aircraft or the operator is not up to the required standard then we will not put you or your families safety at risk.
Operators that have successfully been certified as Wingman operators have demonstrated a commitment to the rigorous aviation operations and maintenance requirements of The Wingman Standard™. Each Wingman operator maintains a strict safety program, which Wyvern audits every 24 months, and performs data maintenance which is continuously monitored throughout the audit term by Wyvern staff.
Onsite audits ensure that the air carrier’s operations and maintenance practices continue to adhere to and to uphold The Wingman Standard. The requirements of The Wingman Standard have been developed, and are maintained in conjunction with, the most sophisticated and demanding safety and risk assessment departments in the world. Wyvern subscribers may use the PASS (Pilot & Aircraft Safety Survey) system to generate a PASS report each time they book a charter flight to verify that the trip meets the safety requirements of The Wingman Standard.

Wyvern subscribers may use the PASS (Pilot & Aircraft Safety Survey) system to generate a PASS Report each time they book a charter flight to verify that the trip meets their safety requirements. For example, the pilot check verifies that the assigned pilot is fully certificated, properly type-rated, has met flight time requirements and has current medical and training records. Operator-level checks confirm that the operator has a valid AOC on file, the aircraft is registered and sufficient aircraft insurance is in place.
All our operators that we charter flights from for our clients, must meet standards set forth by the CAA for safety, security and service. The safety of our clients is of paramount importance. All Falcona aircraft operators are audited by their relevant aviation authority in order to maintain a valid Air Operator Certificate. For your added safety, all the aircraft we charter on behalf of clients are piloted by two pilots who are fully trained and qualified.
