Wingman Operator

Maintaining the Wyvern Wingman standard reaffirms the commitment of Talon’s employees in exceeding industry best practices and promoting aviation safety.

Talon Air, Inc. has successfully completed a Wyvern on-site audit and joined the ranks of those in the elite Wingman program. Operators that have successfully passed the on-site audit undergo a rigorous process in which their safety and maintenance operations are scrutinized. Operators that successfully complete the audit have met the Wyvern Standard, a globally recognized seal of excellence. The Wyvern Standard far surpasses the industry standard for air charter safety.

Since 2001, Talon Air has delivered an unparalleled level of consistency and customer service to the luxury private jet charter market. Talon has emerged as New York’s fastest growing full service private jet charter operator, aircraft management and maintenance service provider. Headquartered at Republic Airport (FRG) in Farmingdale, New York, and with additional operating bases in Bedford, MA (BED) and Stuart, FL (SUA); Talon’s fleet of business jets operate from its state of the art 100,000-sq-ft hangar and office complex. The Company operates one of the most diverse fleets in private aviation including the Sikorsky 76B, Amphibious Caravan, King Air B200, King Air 300, King Air 350i, Beechjet 400A, Hawker 400XP, Hawker 800XP, Hawker 4000, Challenger 300, Gulfstream IVSP and Gulfstream V private aircraft. As a Wyvern Wingman, ARG/US Platinum and an IS-BAO Stage 2 registered company, Talon Air is considered the premier turnkey aircraft management, on-demand charter and Part 145 Aircraft Maintenance provider.

The Wyvern Standard – the original standard upon which Wyvern Consulting, Ltd. was built – is one of the strictest standards of safety in the industry today. Operators undergo a 2-3 day on site audit to ensure they meet the expectations of The Wyvern Standard. “Wyvern has become part of Talon Air’s safety culture” said Jason Sanders Senior VP- Flight Standards. “Maintaining the Wyvern Wingman standard reaffirms the commitment of Talon’s employees in exceeding industry best practices and promoting aviation safety.” Post-audit an operator is required to keep up with particular reporting requirements. Operator, aircraft and crew background checks happen 24/7 in the Wyvern database. This ensures that the Wyvern audit is valid through the term of the recommendation and that it is more than just a snapshot of what the audit team saw while they were on site with the charter operator.

Wyvern uses state-of-the-art technology and hands-on data mining to obtain accurate, real-time data, including training documents, crew currency, insurance levels, maintenance training and aircraft hours and additional relevant information. Thousands of data points are reviewed both manually and within the system every day. With the only system available that evaluates both process and compliance, Wyvern’s approach to safety is unique in the industry.

Wyvern is a global leader in aviation safety auditing, consulting and information services, providing one of the most rigorous onsite safety auditing packages in the world, through its Wyvern Wingman Operator program, as well as, a best practice program for brokers, through the Wyvern Registered Broker system. Wyvern also promotes consumer education through its PASS system. With a Wyvern PASS report charter buyers receive up-to-date safety information about the operator, aircraft and crew of their flight. Corporate flight departments, travel departments, fractional programs and charter brokers use Wyvern as their primary source of aviation safety information.
