Erickson Incorporated announced today that its subsidiaries comprised of air and maintenance operations are each now certified as Wyvern Wingman Operators. This prestigious designation by Wyvern, Ltd. is awarded to aviation service providers who meet standards for flight and maintenance operations that exceed regulatory obligations.
The Wyvern Wingman Standard has been recognized as the industry’s gold standard in aviation safety for twenty-two years and is constantly updated to reflect a commitment to current industry best practices and the highest level of safety culture and protocol. Wingman Operators must successfully pass a Wingman audit, which demands transparency with respect to operational history, safety records, standard operating procedures, operational definitions, pilot experience and ongoing training practices, and a close evaluation of critical programs such as the Safety Management System and Emergency Response Plan.
The company’s number one guiding principle is passenger and employee safety, and the new status as a Wingman Operator demonstrates Erickson’s commitment and adherence to provide safe and reliable helicopter and fixed-wing transportation.
