We stop at nothing to maintain the absolute highest standards of safety in all our processes and practices. It’s the foundation of everything we do here at STA.

STA Jets, the leader in offering innovative private flight solutions for charter and jet management, announced that it has successfully been re-certified by the aviation safety and risk management company Wyvern, renewing its Wingman designation. As a testament to the firm’s commitment to the highest standards of safety, STA has held the Wingman designation since 2016. This re-certification sits alongside STA’s IS-BAO Stage 2 certification, as well as an ARGUS Platinum designation. Taken together, these three safety standards cover every aspect of operations at STA, from pilots, maintenance procedures, flight planning, and Safety Management Systems (SMS). They stand as measurable confirmation of STA’s unwavering commitment to the safety of its passengers and team members.

Maintaining Wyvern Wingman certification is no small feat for aviation companies; Wyvern’s Wingman designation is the most rigorous audit standard to keep current, requiring pilots and maintenance personnel to receive training that far exceeds the regulatory minimums in place. STA’s culture of dedication to maintaining safety standards round the clock enabled the STA team to comfortably meet these strict standards.

Kurt Belcher, CEO of STA Jets, affirmed the commitment to safety that has defined the company from its very beginning: “It’s meaningful to have third-party confirmation of what everyone on the STA team already knows: that we stop at nothing to maintain the absolute highest standards of safety in all our processes and practices. It’s the foundation of everything we do here at STA.”
