Operator Jet Linx Aviation achieves Wyvenr’s Wingman Pro, its highest level of safety certification

JetLinx Aviation has gained Wyvern’s Wingman Pro certification, a new and higher level above Wingman.

That puts the jet card and management operator as the only provider with the highest safety ratings from Argus, Wyvern, and IS-BAO.

In 2021, Jet Linx became the first operator to earn the Argus Platinum Elite ranking.

It already held IS-BAO Stage 3, the highest level of that organization, since 2015.

Jet Linx is the eighth-largest private jet operator in the U.S. based on charter and fractional flight hours.

“We are immensely proud to have achieved Wyvern Wingman Pro certification,” said Jamie Walker, President & CEO of Jet Linx.

He added, “Safety has always been our top priority, and this certification is a testament of our commitment to providing the highest level of safety and service to our clients. Now holding the three most elite safety ratings in aviation, we look forward to continuing to advance our safety programs and encourage the highest safety practices throughout the industry.”

According to Wyvern, “Wingman operators are elevated to Wingman Pro status when they allow Wyvern to assess their Safety Culture, and the analysis reveals a healthy and generative culture. Also, to achieve this higher recognition, the operator must demonstrate that their safety management system is fully effective and in the continual monitoring and improvement phase, with a proper focus on human and organizational factors.”

Safety culture

“Our award-winning safety culture is maintained and enriched thanks to the work of many different team members at Jet Linx. As we celebrate these third-party validations, we also want to recognize the behind-the-scenes investments into pilot fatigue monitoring software, voluntary self-reporting programs, and our decision to maintain dedicated aircraft assignments – a practice in place at fewer than 5% of Part 135 Operators. We believe our Safety Management System, pound for pound and dollar for dollar, lives up to the same exacting standards of most major airlines,” said RD Johnson, Vice President of Safety at Jet Linx.

Jet Linx continues with its all-team Safety Summit this year, which it has run since. 2017

On June 13, it will pause revenue operations, grounding its fleet of over 100 aircraft to bring its entire nationwide team together for education and collaboration on safety.

Earlier this month, Jet Linx cut peak days, callouts, and some fees on its jet card program.
