Win-win for Wyvern
During this week’s 2015 NBAA convention, held in Las Vegas, Nevada, aviation safety services provider Wyvern has gained a Wyvern Broker, InterFlight Global (IFG). TAG Farnborough (FAB), UK-headquartered Acropolis Aviation has also renewed its Wyvern Wingman certification.
A Wyvern Broker is obliged to use the company’s data programs including The Wingman Report, Safety Intelligence Report (SIR) market intelligence, and generate real-time safety reports on the operator, aircraft, and crew of a particular flight.
Based in the US and in Spain, IFG is a commercial air and space transportation industries advisory, consulting, brokerage and finance firm. “IFG has over 20 years of aircraft and charter brokerage experience in the United States and Europe with satellite operations in the Middle East and Asia,” comments IFG Managing Partner Yvette Garcia. “We’re proud to join the Wyvern Broker Network.”

“By embracing the broker pledge to conduct business in an ethical and responsible manner, IFG will be a trustworthy source for end-users of aircraft charter services,” adds Wyvern CEO Art Dawley. “Our partnership with IFG will also help to push demand for Wingman charter operators in Europe.”
According to a company statement and claimed to be one of the most demanding air carrier safety achievements in the industry, to be considered as a Wyvern Wingman, operators must have an immaculate record for a minimum of five years with the appropriate aviation authorities, actively show their commitment to leading safety practices, and have a strong safety culture.
“[The Wyvern Wingman status] is a hugely important endorsement in the industry, especially in the Americas,” comments Acropolis Aviation Charter Sales Executive Andy West. The luxury charter and management provider has been a Wingman since 2011, and this is the organization’s third successful audit by Wyvern. “The ability to continually meet the Wyvern benchmark is a testament to an organization’s commitment to safety,” adds Dawley.
