We take away something new, or refine a process whenever we take one of these deep dives into our operation and get better at what we do each time.”

The Wyvern audit evaluates an evolving set of recommended industry best practices for aircraft operators, their safety procedures and performance criteria. “Since 1991, Wyvern has been a global leader in aviation audits and data services with a purpose of elevating safety and promoting a positive safety culture throughout the aviation industry and other organizations,” said Kari Johnson, Jet Linx Aviation Director of Safety.

Jet Linx participates in audits for each of its safety certifications: Wyvern Wingman, ARGUS Platinum and IS-BAO Stage 3. “Since 2007, ARGUS (Aviation Research Group United States) has conducted audits of Jet Linx every two years, so Wyvern Ltd. was engaged to provide an audit on the alternate years. These two audits provide annual safety oversight,” Johnson explained. “In addition, these audits are supplemented by IS-BAO audits, the internationally recognized safety and operational standard, that also validates and advances Jet Linx’s Safety Management System.”

“We put safety at the forefront of everything we do,” said Jamie Walker, Jet Linx Aviation President & CEO. “It’s so easy to take the familiar and routine things for granted and assume safety is a given. Nothing could be further from the truth. We do not assume, we check and recheck. We make safety happen.”
