Premier Private Jets has once more secured its designation as a Wyvern Wingman certified operator by maintaining Wingman status through the Flight Leader program.
The Wyvern Wingman provides a safety benchmark that allows air charter customers to assess performance expectations against recognized industry best-operating practices before purchasing air charter services.
“Renewal of our Wyvern Wingman status demonstrates Premiers’ unwavering commitment to safety in our day-to-day operations and organizational safety culture,” said President and Chief Operating Officer Josh Birmingham.
He adds, “By participating in the progressive Flight Leader program, we are leading the way to adopt alternative and innovative pathways to continuous improvement, focusing more on safety management system effectiveness and human factors to achieve the highest level of safety performance.”
Wyvern Wingman operators are evaluated by the Wingman standard criteria.
The scope of the evaluation includes operational activities, a review of the company’s operational history and safety records, safety management system (SMS), internal evaluation program, administrative compositions, technical documentation, pilot and aircraft records, training requirements, and maintenance operations, including technician training and experience.
Founded in 2013, Premier operates a floating fleet of light and medium-size jets. It also maintains its own FAR Part 145 certified repair stations in Stuart, Florida (SUA), and Oakland International Airport located in Waterford, Michigan (PTK). Maintenance services include AOG, available to third-party aircraft owners and operators.
It offers two different jet card products, a traditional fixed hourly rate program and a fixed regional price card for flights to and from Florida.
