ExecuJet is proud to announce that its African, Middle Eastern and Australasian (Australia and New Zealand) operations have successfully completed audits to become Wyvern Wingman members or have renewed their Wyvern status. The internationally renowned Wingman programme acknowledges the regular use of Wyvern data – tools and software – which enable them to provide superior operations and services on a daily basis.
In order to achieve Wyvern Wingman status, operators must undergo an on-site safety audit and meet rigorous safety standards. Wyvern demands its operators meet safety standards that are in excess of most government regulatory agencies. Operators which pass the on-site audit also agree to regular post-auditing, which requires them to provide up-to-date information regarding aircraft and crew. ExecuJet’s Australian Wyvern approval was first granted in 2002 and has since been renewed four times. ExecuJet Middle East renewed its approval in April, having first been granted such status in 2007.
ExecuJet Africa Awarded Argus Platinum Status
The Wyvern approval adds to ExecuJet’s long list of flight safety certifications for their worldwide operations. These approvals include recognition from the Flight Safety Foundation BARS (Australia), the HART Aviation Safety Audit, (Africa, Australia) as well as the Shell Aviation Audit (Australia, Middle East). In addition, ExecuJet Africa recently collected the ARGUS Platinum Rating for 2012. It is the only operator to have received the Platinum Rating as a charter operator on the African continent. Together with Australasia, Europe and the Middle East, ExecuJet Africa is also IS-BAO certificated by the International Business Aviation Council (IBAC).
Quintin Cairncross, Group Director Flight Operations highlighted: “ExecuJet is proud to be receiving safety endorsements from highly valued companies and organisations which recognise that we are an aviation group completely focused on safety and quality in all our regions. Wyvern is one of the most recognised approvals to hold and once again our dedicated workforce has demonstrated just how seriously we take safety and quality.”
New CAMO Approvals for ExecuJet Middle East
ExecuJet Middle East holds a broad range of approvals to support both its commercial charter operations and on-going maintenance management requirements and business. Along with its IS-BAO certification, and Wyvern Wingman status it is also Bermudan Article 85 approved permitting it to operate Bermudan registered aircraft for private operations. This is in addition to holding the UAE GCAA AOC which enables worldwide unscheduled commercial operations. Complementing the commercial charter approvals EJME has also received approval this month from the UAE's GCAA regulator to offer CAMO, Continuing Airworthiness services, on a broad range of aircraft including Challenger 600 series, Challenger 850, Falcon 900, Global Express BD700 series, Hawker 800XP, Gulfstream 450, Learjet 60XR and Lineage 1000 aircraft types.
This is in addition to the existing approvals it holds from the Bermudan Department of Civil Aviation, BDCA for CAMO Bermudan Part 39 as well as the Cayman Civil Aviation Authorities Part 39 CAMO. Combined this enables the business to offer on-going services to private aircraft registered on the Cayman and Bermudan registry as well as maximising the opportunities presented by the new UAE approvals.
