DC Aviation, the largest German provider of individual flights with business jets, was awarded for its high safety standards. Within the scope of the EBACE, the European Business Aviation Association (EBAA) awarded DC Aviation - as one of only three companies - with the 2011 Gold Safety of Flight Award. On the occasion of the presentation, EBAA president Brian Humphries stated, “The organizations we have recognized today have not been content to rest on their laurels. Instead, they’ve made the safety of flight a part of their corporate cultures.”
To additionally reinforce the corporate philosophy, a contract for recertification was signed with Wyvern. “Our goal is to far surpass the basic, legally prescribed domestic, and international quality and safety requirements,” said Michael Kuhn, Managing Director of DC Aviation. The Wyvern StandardTM is a leading audit standard developed with the most sophisticated and demanding corporate flight departments in the world. “We are very proud to have this partnership with DC Aviation,” comments Brent Moldowan, Managing Director of Wyvern Consulting. “DC Aviation has committed their organization to maintaining the highest standards and we are pleased to have the opportunity to support that goal through the Wingman audit program along with our data delivery services.”
The fact that DC Aviation meets the highest safety standards in aviation was demonstrated in the recent IOSA recertification. In the process, five auditors reviewed more than 960 standards and processes in all areas related to aviation law from technology and safety to quality management and flight operations. Again, DC Aviation was certified with an excellent result for this global safety standard for airlines. The international seal of quality, which the Stuttgart-based company received in 2007 as the first German provider of private jets, was presented to them for the third consecutive time and underscores the exceptional position DC Aviation occupies in the area of safety among business jet operators.
