Wyvern Wingman

Hop-A-Jet Worldwide Jet Charter is currently one of 29 private jet charter operators in the United States who have been accepted into the Wyvern Wingman Alliance—a prestigious group of elite jet charter companies.

As a partner in the Wyvern Wingman Alliance, you are assured Hop-A-Jet has met Wyvern’s enhanced air charter safety standards, which are significantly more stringent than the FAA requires. For example, aircrews must have nearly 4 times the experience mandated by the FAA—and all flight crews must undergo rigorous annual simulator training that’s not even required by the FAA.

Double-checked™ aircraft, too, live up to higher standards. While the FAA requires no formal manufacturer’s training for maintenance technicians, Wyvern does. What’s more, they require every maintenance department or service provider to institute a formalized safety program—complete with a safety committee—all of which is audited on an annual basis. Today, you’ll find less than 700 aircraft globally that meet the enhanced Wyvern standards.

Wyvern continues to endorse Hop-A-Jet Worldwide Jet Charter as a safe choice for private jet travel. Our current Wyvern Audit expires December 31, 2017. Another Audit will be completed by that date.
